lovely lunch time eating with lots of fresh sandwiches and homemade soup on offer. Always busy during lunch time but they also offer seating outside if the weather is favourable .

Dined here twice. First time was with my partner back in early 2013 and second time was with work colleagues (their choice) early 2014. On both occasions the food failed to impress. Bland, overpriced and not much going on really, it's a shame as the food doesn't do the premises justice and it genuinely looks a very inviting and nice... More

We stopped in for lunch on a very cold afternoon. It was very clean and modern. The menu was appealing to us, so we ordered lunch. Bar and restaurant were virtually empty but we were not well taken care of. The server was cold, to say the least. We waited an extremely long time for anyone to take our drink... More

We had a pleasant time having dinner here. It is across from the Mercure Hotel. The atmosphere is airy and modern. We all ate the scallops which were good but some were overcooked. They were on potatoes with spinach and there were dried onions on top. The staff was really pleasant. The music for my tastes was too loud.

Enjoyed a superb family birthday meal. Wide range of dishes. Tuna and Sea bass dishes were very tasty. Steak Pie had big chunks of juicy steak.....and the chicken stuffed with haggis in a whisky sauce was delicious. Good portions but we just managed sweet. Bobo's brownies are a must....highly recommended. The staff gave five star service and the surroundings were... More
