Great food, great music, great atmosphere, and they have local brews. Every dish served to our party of 5, consisting of 3 picky kids, was excellent. This was our favorite meal in four days of eating at local restaurants.

We went there for breakfast and had the eggs benedict and Scottish smoked salmon with scrambled eggs. The hollandaise sauce on the benedict was not good and the muffins were hard. The scrambled eggs were runny and flavorless. Perhaps being from the states this wasn't what we are generally used to for eggs benedict and scrambled eggs, but I was... More

We went here for American Thanksgiving dinner with our daughter and friends. Delicious fish pie and bangers and mash. The service was good, the ambience was warm and inviting and you could actually hear the conversation with your dinner companions. Yes we would wholeheartedly recommend this restaurant to friends!

We wanted to tried the local fares and MGCF didn't disappoint. I ordered the sausages and mash while my wife had the Haggis. Both were great and the staff were very patient in explaining to us how the Haggis was made. Excellent place to visit, walking distance from the National Museum of Scotland.

Went for a brunch last weekend. The service was a bit disappointing, food took long to come and it was "ok". The shakes were really good and over all the money value was good. The atmosphere is very nice and the location is very central.

With all the fabulous reviews on here I was super excited to go to Mum's. I am partially disappointing because we showed up just as they were finishing breakfast time and were told they were no longer serving breakfast. I am allergic to nuts and they told me that they could not guarantee anything due to liability - which I... More
