A unique, Doll's House themed setting: quiet enough to hear conversation, but enough noise to give a warm ambience. The food is a beautiful Scottish-French fusion: locally sourced and temptingly fresh. The set menus are especially good value!

The food and service are both great. Well worth a visit. The food is reasonably expensive but it's worth it as high quality.

Living away from Scotland my trips home have always been enhanced by a trip to the Dolls House so we again booked lunch for this trip. From start to finish it was a poor experience with the highlights as follows: - 1. Waited 40 minutes to get a drink. 2. Starter advertised as having cinnamon apples actually had figs. 3.... More

Having eaten at the Dolls House numerous times since it first opened I can honestly say that I wont be back. Went there with friends for a Christmas meal and we were all disappointed. Food prices had been vastly inflated for Christmas and the menu choices were limited to a christmas selection that was very poor value, nothing special and... More

As a family, we have been attending The Dolls house for little over 20 years as a Christmas treat. Until now this has always been a pleasent experience.
