Having noticed that this restaurant is advertised on the Tesco Clubcard we decided to use some of our vouchers to visit for lunch. Having read reviews on Tripadvisor we were not sure what to expect but I can say we could not fault anything at the restaurant. On arrival we were quickly shown to our table and provided with menus.... More

Coincidentally we were taken here on two successive evenings by two different friends whilst on a visit to Scotland from home in Wiltshire. The two evenings were perfectly satisfactory from a food perspective, but I do think that this place lacks atmosphere, and is reminiscent of a school canteen. Our evening was made for us by our friends and their... More

Been here so many times and always can't see past the fillet steak! It's soooo yummy! Always cooked to perfection. Staff are lovely and friendly and always making sure your drinks are topped up and meal is ok for you.

Stopped off here after visiting the Falkirk Wheel. As other reviewers have stated, service not swift but we found that it made for a nice relaxing experience. Waiting staff were attentive and the quality of the food was extremely good at a reasonable price. All in all, worth popping in if you are looking for somewhere to eat after visiting... More

The food was great but the service throughout was ridiculously slow, waiting almost 25 minutes for soft drinks ! All in all the meal for 9 people took almost 3 hours... They also undercharged us by almost £70, we brought this to their attention and received no apology or thanks.

We booked a table for a fairly large party. Service wasn't exactly quick, but this meant we had a chance to relax and chat. Drinks took quite a while to arrive, but in fairness we were sat at pretty much the same time as another big table. Starters were all very nice and well cooked. The bread with olives was... More

Went for a late birthday lunch with wife, dad and child. Made to feel very welcome despite it being busy. Service not super slow but would have benefited from being a bit quicker. On the table we had fish & chips and balmoral chicken and can highly recommend! Best thing - all dishes came with some veg elements which were... More

Friendly welcome but Slow service and the place was only one quarter full so if your in a rust it might not be the place for quick meal. The food is a bit over priced but well presented but average in taste . The sea food pasta had four shelled mussels in it two of them were not opened which... More
