Good hearty servings of well cooked pub grub. Service was also very good. We had a party of 15 and were all served within 15 to 20 minutes.

Always enjoy visiting this place when in Kirkcaldy visiting family. We were a party of 10 on this occasion, having High Tea. This is excellent value at £10.00 per head. It includes cups of tea / coffee, toast , a substantial main meal with choice of chips, potatoes, salad and veg. This is followed by a choice of homemade cakes... More

Usual selection of choices for main meals, service is very swift - no hanging about. Sweet/dessert choices not up to much - seldom have this though so not much of a issue to us. Chef's specials have not been that 'special' on last few visits so just ordered off main menu. Good sized portions served and always hot. Great value... More

Remember traditional bar lunches? - yeah that! Good choice of wholesome dishes served by friendly staff. Pensioners' Menu offers a good selection too. Will certainly be making return visits.

Never mind the dated decor,If your looking for great pub grub, served very quickly and with a smile this is the place to go. Every time I have been I have had my food on the table within fifteen minutes. High teas are excellent.
