The salmon was beautiful and the presentation inviting. Ditto the bruschetta. Best of all was the friendly and attentive service.

We got into town a little late for lunch, so we were starving. We wanted to eat at a nice Scottish pub, but we saw this first. We were not disappointed. This was a couple weeks ago, so I don't remember what everyone ordered, but I remember that we liked it quite a bit and the food was very fresh.... More

Lovely meal, great staff, nice atmosphere made for a very enjoyable evening. We had not booked and they were very busy - obviously a good place to eat- but they fitted us in as early diners which suited us as we were leaving early next day.

The restaurant exudes a warmth and homely atmosphere that was felt very welcoming. The food and the service were excellent. Very family-friendly as well. Super experience.
