Disappointed 10 year old et al

My grandson was delighted to see pizza on the children's menu. His brother thankfully ordered the fish n'chips. His Dad and I the fish too. The pizza arrived, a yellowy top of melted cheese, obviously done in a microwave which the poor child looked at in horror. He tried but could not eat the... read more

So out with my parents who just love this place as they do a pensioners special. I did the challenge and got a nice free dessert. Atmosphere is good. Could do with better disabled access. Food well priced and as fresh as you can get. Wish they had draught beer but just a minor issue. Very relaxed setting with plenty... More

I always try to stop here for fish and chips, the fish batter is always crispy and the chips and great too. Staff are always welcoming and keen that you enjoy your meal. Well done

Travelling south from Aberdeen we noticed a sign by the road advertising award winning fish and chips in Brechin. We were duped. Two expensive fish suppers were binned. The fish were coated in extremely thick uncooked batter which was disgusting. The greasy chips were no better. This is by far the worst fish and chips I have ever encountered and... More

Food overcooked and the service was terrible. It's extremely overpriced for the small portion. I wont be back.

Wasn't sure if take away meals went on tripadvisor but i'm quessing that if you are interested in the food quality then its still relevant - its the same food from the same kitchen, after all. And very lovely food it was too: I had a 'fish supper' [ fish and chips] and both were obviously straight from the cooking... More

Went here with my sister and nephews tonight for tea. Both sis and I ordered standard fish and chips and both nephews (one of which is a fussy eater) ordered kids pizza and chips. The waiter was friendly and shared a joke with us. The kids pizzas came out first, and quite quickly, shortly followed by our very large standard... More

Went in for a carry out, had a Spree voucher but forgot my card would not accept it and the young manageress attitude towards me stank, very rude and obnoxious if I had not ordered I would have walked out, I actually told her any more cheek and I would report her, then it changed, fish was good but chips...

having visited the ashvale a couple of times previously and had pretty dodgy food and service, we left the restaurant off of our must eat at list. About a month ago we decided to give it another try. Yes a big improvement but waited until we had eaten in a couple of times to be sure it had improved. Yes... More
