My mum, daughter and I visit Braes 2 or 3 times a month. The food's good, the staff are nice and friendly and their cocktails are fabulous! There's always a nice atmosphere and what you get is very good value for money. We'll continue to be regulars!

We visited on a cold, wet day. The fire was on and the bar areas were cosy and spotless. The bar is very well organised and staff are friendly and attentive. The menu is varied and well priced. We had fish and chips and sticky toffee pudding. Both were delicious. Braes is a great lunch stop!

We had a lovely meal in Braes. Staff were lovely and the atmosphere was nice. Was quiet at time of dining which was great to have a proper catch up with friends. Soon got busy around 8pm and noise levels increased but this is expected in a bar. If you're after quiet drinks then going early is advised. Definitely worth... More

I go in here quite a lot and the food is always very good. It's perfect for breakfast, lunch and dinner. The drinks are reasonably priced making it great for a night out also. My only niggle is that the service is very slow, no matter how busy it is. Which is fine most of the time but if you... More

I have visited several times now as I am lucky enough to work opposite Braes. Food is lovely and I would recommend the beer battered fish and chips. Staff very friendly, especially Steve who is always up for a laugh (ask about the dessert specials because the sticky toffee pudding is fab!) Great food and great atmosphere. would highly recommend.
