Groupon voucher lunch

Had yet another very tasty lunch here on Saturday. Took a chance ordering chicken tikka, not knowing if it might be too spicy. However I needn't have worried. It was delicious. My daughter had scampi which she said was equally good. Highly recommend this place!!!

I agree with Kevin b and Dundee 20. I also visited with a Groupon voucher and despite only about 10 people there the service when the lady ?? decided to serve me was abrupt and rude. It was as if she was doing me a favour. Due to this I walked out in disgust and did not use the voucher.... More

Had the Steak Pie Dinner before we went to Glasgow to see Simply Red in Concert and it filled us up for the rest of the day.

Struggled in after a bit of shopping and food and had the best pint of Guinness in years. Jacqui was the star. Loves the Bay City Rollers. Probably.

Have had lots of meals here and they're usually good but on Saturday evening not so much! It was fairly busy when we went in but not packed. We ordered steak pie for the men and my friend and I ordered the fish and chips "with home made tartare sauce on the side". The two steak pies arrived after the... More

Didn't eat here but went in for a drink on Sunday eve. Decent priced drinks, and cooked breakfast advertised for £5. Needs updating (toilets shabby) but will be in here for drinks/brekkie on next visit!

Visited this pub earlier on in the week with a Groupon voucher. Came in and the place was dead, woman which I thought was the manager sitting behind the bar on her phone. Went over to the bar to tell her we were using the Groupon voucher, and she said just come back to the bar with our order. I... More

This venue really needs upgrading. It's very shabby looking and dirty. When the waitress came to take our order, she continued to speak to us (myself and my younger sister) but went over to clean another table! I never gave my order in this manner as I found it to be extremely rude to which she replied "I'm listening". We... More

We visited having been before, however didn't realise how filthy the restaurant was. You enter the doorway and there has been no effort to keep out grim, dirt and cigarette ends. The tables and condiments are sticky and the floor is filthy. Time of visit 5pm and so the staff had time to make an effort with basic cleaning but... More
