My mother has severe allergies so she has to be careful what she eats etc. The food served to her was not what she ordered, we tried to explain to the waitress & asked her to take it back for her then to basically kick off screaming at my mum to eat it just eat it. This went on for... More

I visited the restaurant over the May holiday weekend with my husband and family. The restaurant is beautiful with very friendly staff. Every dish that we all ordered was absolutely outstanding! All of the food was piping hot and both the food and drink are very reasonably priced. I also have brought friends from Glasgow down to come here on... More

Food was ok, when we got it (it wasn't even busy, so wouldn't like to see a busy service) but nothing special. My husband had chicken noddle soup, but went fishing for the noddles and the chicken was like finding a salmon on the Tweed. The service was poor and be aware they add on rice etc (Its noted on...

Then had fillet streak with onions in a black pepper sauce came out on a sizzling platter, again really good sized portion and loads to steak that just melted in the mouth. The wine list at... More

Well I orderd a starter chinese women gave me something else I wanted sweet and sour chicken balls she went to the manager and shouted across the room in a different language which made me feel slightly offended to what she said about me when the starter was incorrect. I will use my money somewhere else next time if their... More

Went alone for a lunch while treading time. Good value £7.95 for three courses and excellent selection and plentiful. Older of the two waitresses could have been a little more friendly but service was quick and food was good. I will go again.

Dropped in with the family for Lunch on Easter Monday. Restaurant was busy but we were quickly seated and our drinks order taken. Food order taken soon after and followed on shortly. All our meals were great, reasonable portions and good value. The staff were not overly chatty but were polite and helpful throughout the meal. The restaurant was very... More

Decided to try here as we noticed it when driving past. Looked reasonable from the out side and appeared alright on entering. However we had to approach a member of staff to be seated as no one took any notice of us when we walked in - not a good start. We were shown to a table given menus and... More
