Ate here with 5 golfing friends as a last minute convenient choice. This is a large smart bar/restaurant with a simple junk/convenience food menu.We ate burgers, hot dogs, pulled pork and a pizza between us.Only the pulled pork was considered reasonable. The pizza ( which also was poor) arrived after most of us had finished eating. However it was not... More

Hi GuyC43 Many thanks for your review of Braes. I am sorry to hear that our menu does not meet your expectations. It is our understanding that the server did, in fact, check back with your table and nothing was brought to his attention.

Pop across to Braes about once a week, food great, staff always very friendly and with being regular they're also great at remembering you and your usual drink. Can't recommend it enough!

I have been to Braes many times, however the only reason I go back is because of the food. The service is always very slow even when there are only a couple of other tables in. I also find the staff disinterested and rude. I will not be going back again as when I went with a couple of friends... More

I regularly have lunch in Braes and sometimes breakfast (if running late). Service is always very friendly - staff are fantastic. The food is well prepared and tasty. Service is always quick, and staff are very attentive. All round great place with brilliant staff. I highly recommend lunch (and the bacon and cheese burger with spicy fries!)

Braes We ordered the big breakfast and BBQ chicken. We agreed both were very tasty and good portion sizes too. The service was great with plenty of banter and assistance, so we gave a good tip. Like coming here. Good prices and lots to choose from :)

Food decent, overall atmosphere pleasant. We were pestered to order when we sat down and we're not asked if we wanted a drink whilst we were looking at the menu. On leaving we went to the bar to get the bill, but weren't given a bill just a verbal notification of the total amount! Luckily I liked the food or... More

Clean, comfortable pub with discrete areas for those who want to have a meal, and those who want to watch sports with their nibbles. Good beer and real ale selection, as well.

Recently visited said establishment for lunch. Ordered a cappuccino, BBQ chicken melt and a pint of Tennets lager. While the coffee and pint were up to standard, the main dish was poor to say the least. The food arrived freshly microwaved into greasy perfection. Upon closer examination, it turns out the BBQ chicken melt is half of a chicken breast... More
