It had been so long since last visiting that we were unsure what to expect: would the menu be markedly different? would quality still be a premium? and would the place still exude charm? The welcome was genuine and the buzz within was subtle as diners had their own little nooks and crannies to claim privacy and intimacy. The menu... More

A really gorgeous place with a great Lebanese menu and equally delicious cocktails and spritzers. Very comfortable and friendly environment too. Can't wait to return.

Our first visit to The Left Bank. Decided to have 3 small dishes (prawns, mackerel and ribs) and large mussels. Wow flavours and food amazing. Staff friendly and very helpful. Really enjoyed ourselves. Thanks for cheering up a miserable day. See you very soon.

We visited on a Saturday morning with family. I chose the Lebanese breakfast - absolutely delicious. Also the cheese mornay sauce used on the egg Benedict is to die for! I would definitely go back :)

Visiting family in Scotland and decided to try find a pet friendly place for brekkie. So glad to have found The Left Bank, my son & husband had a decent sized 'Banks' breakfast & I opted for the Lebanese breakfast which was delicious. The dog enjoyed her complimentary bowl of nibbles & water too. Great place, great service - will... More

We had eaten here several times before, including special occasions, and it had always been a positive experience. Not this time. We always look at Christmas menus in nearby restaurants and this year The Left Bank won so we decided to book a Christmas dinner here for just the two of us on 23 December. When we asked for the...

I've now been to the Left Bank for breakfast, lunch, and dinner, and I've enjoyed each experience immensely! The menu offers many unconventional options as well as delicious, common dishes. The prices are mostly fair, and the staff isn't overly friendly but nonetheless attentive and pleasant. I would definitely recommend the french toast for brunch and the superfood salad for... More

Went with a group of 8 for Sunday lunch, booked on the Xmas menu. We had pre-ordered, as asked, sat at our table, got drinks but no-one came back to use until I had asked 30min later about starters coming out. They didn't realise we had pre ordered so not great organisation and food now coming out late. Menu didn't... More

Dogs are welcome so The Left Bank was an ideal choice for our son. Very good bistro styled menu where the food quality matched the menu description. Staff very good and just knew how to look after their customers. We all had burger based meals followed by a really excellent New York Cheesecake. And the burgers were cooked as ordered... More
