Overall i think Dicconsons is or could be a decent eating establishment, however on the day i went it didn't quite live up to the reputation the reviews on here give it. I was impressed with the layout and decor of the place and the staff seemed nice and helpful. It has good parking facilities and is convenient to get... More

I have never eaten better food in a restaurant that I have at the Dicconson Arms. The menus are endlessly interesting and inventive, though some favourite dishes stay there. But when they are as good as the fig tart, for example, why not? A good test of any restaurant is how the fish is cooked and presented; the fish here... More

This restaurant looks quite ordinary from the outside, but once inside it is a real gem. The décor has character and the people who run it are very friendly. They appear to pride themselves on attention to detail. For example if different cutlery is required for the ordered meal, it is not just carried in the hand but is placed... More

Travelling from London to Edinburgh, we came off the M6 to avoid Charnock Richard Service Station food, and stumbled across this gem. We were met by a friendly barman, the food was fanrtastic; I had lambs liver, which came on mashed potato with delicious black pudding and bacon and caramelised onions, my wife and daughter had excellent fish and double...

The food on offer was excellent and well cooked, the specials board was almost entirely fish based which was a slight problem for one of our party who is allergic to seafood of any description. But the main menu was very comprehensive. The staff were attentive and pleasant. Our only negative comment would be that it was so hot in... More

been here twice now. Once with locals from work and the second is when I met my mum and sister for my sisters birthday. I work near here so it's very handy for some food after work. The portions are nice. It's a posh pub, and won a lot of awards!

Cheers guys the food was great, steak was one of the best I have had for ages and my wife says the fishcakes were nice as well. Good staff. Men's toilet only had one light not working all else worked fine. The only negative was we could not get the WIFI to work we tried quite a few times.
