Nice surroundings, good food

The menu is plentiful and the portions are a good size. The choice for vegetarians is slightly lacking and the actual offering was not great.

Despite the drab exterior and the lack of signage to direct you to the restaurant, persevere it worth the effort. The staff were helpful and friendly with our dietary requirements (gluten and dairy intolerance) A quick pre booking phone call confirmed tbat they could cope. We were able to chose from a good selection on the menu and it was... More

Waitress was very friendly and we had great service throughout our meal. I had a sirloin steak which was quite fatty, not like Any sirloin I had had before. Apart from that my meal was very tasty - I loved the triple cooked chips and pepper sauce. My mum had the "burger of the week", which she thoroughly enjoyed.

Went here with family looking forward to eating lamb chops in Shetland. I was very disappointed as they were grilled too much. It is important that this nice young waiter from Hungary asks all guests how they prefer their meat cooked. Apart from that I missed seeing the waterfront .....

Have eaten here a few times in the last year, but on the most recent occasion I have to say the food was perfect! Starter, main and dessert were all spot-on, and I think our table of five all agreed. Portion sizes may be a tad smaller than other places, but it meant I could manage three courses without feeling... More

An enjoyable experience. The place was very busy, so they could perhaps have done with a couple more staff, but we did not have to wait tool long for service. Food was good. Portions adequate. Children;s menu very limited, and did not look too appetising when it arrived, but it was eaten.

We were here for a large family occasion and at the last minute we had one more guest whom it was too late to book in advance for. The staff were so helpful and it was no problem to add an extra table and shift things around for us. Everybody was more than happy with the service, varied menu and... More

Good food. Friendly staff. Excellent decor. On middle floor but accessible by elevator. 4 different types of chips! I had steak & ale pie which was lovely. Desserts were very impressive.
