We had our wedding reception here on Saturday and could not recommend it highly enough. Kenny was so accommodating. Nicola was fantastic, even putting up with my last minute jitters the morning of the wedding ( I rang up wanting to change table plans) I was so happy when we saw how beautiful the restaurant looked. The food was fantastic,... More

we came here as part of a large group for a birthday meal. There were a lot of us and it was a little tight with the seating. The food was excellent, especially the lamb. You will leave here well fed, there are cheaper places to eat, but the food and location were good. As an ale drinker, they did... More

We visited here for a Xmas meal and were all very disappointed by the drop in standards after our previous visits to here. The venue itself is the only saving grace, as without being in such a nice building then I would probably be even more cutting of the meal. The service was bad and lost count of the number... More

The steps to the entrance for those less mobile could be a problem. Attentive service when we entered the restaurant, Coats taken then shown to table and asked if we would like to order drinks. Menu's duly arrived and food order taken. Prompt service for starters to arrive, then noticed no side knife or starter knife. We both had Portobello... More

Excellent choice on this menu for an extremely reasonable £11.95. The quality of food was exceptional. All veg well cooked and fresh. Steaks cooked to perfection and full of taste. Service & hospitality just added the final touch. Fantails now decorated for Christmas and I couldn't see anyone be disappointed. Very well done.

Eat here one night during my stay cant praise food enough. I'm a veggie and they had lots of choices and cooked by someone who really knew what they were doing. Had three courses and couldn't fault one.

I have eaten here three times, twice in the evening and once at lunch time. If you want somewhere special, this is definitely it. The ambiance is relaxing and warm and the staff are attentive and efficient. The food is wonderful, although haggis did feature quite a lot on the menu which is not to my taste. We enjoyed sitting...
