Consistently good!

From coffee and scones to a tasty lunch the food is always good and well presented. Service good and there is never a feeling of being rushed.

Coffee was nice and so was the pastries. However, we sat for nearly 20 minutes with menus while members of staff seemed to be aimlessly walking around and chatting. There was one girl who seemed to be doing all the work and she served us and was very apologetic. Staff need to be more observant.

Splendid lunch from the set menu whilst catching up with some friends. Service was faultless with Felicity leading a great team of servers. Special mention also goes to Fiona and Paul who were exceptionally pleasant and helpful. Will definitely be returning.

Had lunch here again on Sunday. It was fine. The menu is over elaborate and fancy, but the food, although it tries hard, is lacking. We ordered from the set menu because the main menu is mainly salads and Glasgow weather doesn't usually put you in the mood for salad. Chicken breast with a haggis croquette and half a carrot....

Took the family and friends (7 off us) out for Sunday lunch, what a beautiful setting , the location is perfect on a sunny Sunday. Menu and servings was second to none and value for money , I will be back and would strongly recommend it to everyone.

Nice surroundings and busy place for Sunday lunch. The set menu had a varied menu. Our comment would be the portions were very small we opted for the 2 course but wish we had taken 3 courses due to size of portions. Service was good and very efficient and food tasty.
