We were looking for a pub dinner when we came across 1780. Upon arrival we were told (and could see) they were busy. We were seated at the bar until a table became available. A polite member of staff soon showed us to our table where we were told again that it could be a wait for food which we... More

We found this by chance after walking the length of a busy Rose street. Staff were friendly & the most important thing is that the food was good. If for no other reason than trying the Haggis in Filo Pastry with sweet Chilli Sauce ... go there ! We went back 2 nights later & were once again delighted !

Dont waste your money at this place! I ordered the mozzarella and tomato burger....sounds nice but was crap! Dry bun, one slice of tomato and a vege patty...that was all!! Not even a sauce or butter on the bun. Went to McDonald's on the way back to the B&B. Wish I checked the reviews before going in
