Great service, but the food lets it down.

I've been here for lunch a few times now, and I'm always well looked after. The food is a good price, but not great for quality nor quantity. They are very dog friendly though, which is great, and I really can't fault the staff. The worst experience I've had was ordering olives - which were cheap... read more

Come here all the time with friends or for meals with my Fiancé. Food and drink is fairly priced. Staff are lovely and has a cosy atmosphere. Love it :)

I come in here quite regularly because it is near work, but it is much more than convenience which attracts me to the place. Quite a reasonable food menu, with consistency on the "good"; food is always hot and served timely. The guys who work here need a special mention as they are ALWAYS friendly, helpful and attentive - one... More

Pop in once or twice a week for the £5 lunch. Wife normally has mac and cheese and I have the curry of the day. Both dishes are always very good. Staff always friendly and helpful Highly recommended

Good pub food at good prices. Nothing too fancy, but you get what you pay for. Lack of parking can be an issue at times

After a hard day out mountain biking at Glentress we were ready for a good feed to say the least. The Waiting Room was chosen due to it being close to where my friends lived and fact that they had also eaten there before. The staff were attentive, the atmosphere was good, the food came in good time and there... More

A group of us went here on a Saturday and had a lovely afternoon. We enjoyed drinks and food and were served by lovely staff. No complaints at all, varied menu, usual pub grub but reasonably priced and well presented. Will definitely be back.

Stopped off here for some lunch whilst walking through Morningside and was really pleasantly surprised. The staff were really warm and attentive. The food was delicious, in fact I was really impressed with the food; the chilli nachos are a must have, they were so tasty and the portion was really big, big enough 2 of us shared one portion....
