Great function

Organised my friends hen party here and everyone had a great night. It was all booked through email but management very quick to reply and easy to deal with. Bar staff on the night helpful and friendly. Would recommend braes below for any kind of small function.

We booked a table for Saturday night meal and unfortunately were seated in the bar area immediately adjacent to a hen night which was really noisy, one member of the hen party seemed to find blowing a whistle every two minutes incredibly amusing, we did not. In fairness our waitress apologised for the noise and the service was prompt and... More

Thank you, Robbo for your recent review. We are of course upset to hear that you did not get to fully enjoy your evening with us. Saturday nights are always lively and busy, we do try our best to accommodate all of our guests but of course there will be some elements out-with our control. I am pleased to hear... More

Food very nice, but as it was packed it was quite difficult to have a conversation with family. We were having an early dinner so the afternoon drinkers were still there.

Thank you, David for your recent review. We are very pleased to hear you enjoyed your meal with us. Unfortunately, we cannot control all elements within the pub and, as you state, it was a busy Saturday so there is likely to be a lively atmosphere with many people enjoying themselves. Thanks again for your review! Kind regards, Katrina Assistant... More

Great service, great staff, great food. Nothing too much trouble. Family friendly and better than chain restaurants by far. Lovely kids menu but the staff and food make it unique. Recommended

From the minute I inquired, the people at Braes couldn't be more helpful.... I was looking for a function room to hold a family get-together. I got an instant reply from Braes with all of my questions answered (and there were a lot). I then sent a list of additional "requests" which were again answered promptly and the manager Steve...

I hate to write this review because the food on our visit was exactly what I expected; decent pub grub at a fair price. What I can't praise at all is the service. We arrived into the pub to be greeted and told to find a table, after being served drinks we had to wait around 15 minutes before our... More

I am not a fan of complaining about places like pubs and restaurants, and maybe we just hit an off night, but sometimes you just have to say something . . .

We popped in here for a bite of breakfast as we were on the Perth Road. We had the pancakes, bacon and maple syrup and a scrambled egg roll. The food is decent and you get lots of it.
