Now Angus Rd we were not impressed. One of the worse meals and places to eat we have ever been to. Very embarrassing as invited friends. The snapper small pieces mainly all batter and way over cooked. Salmon over scotch egg very oily and certainly not worth the money. I could go on about the other meals but feel its... More

Having not long been to this restaurant prior to this visit, I came on here to put in my 2 cents worth - only to discover many of the recent reviews seem to contrast our experience! All the wait staff were friendly, attentive & informative re: specials for the day. Our orders were taken promptly & the food arrived in... More

We went to Angus Rd for a late lunch today. The new venue looks great, and the service was just wonderful - helpful, friendly and accommodating. Lunch had closed off for main meals, so we ordered 3 of the share plates - calamari, ribs, and venison sliders. Unfortunately all 3 of them were ordinary at best - the ribs were... More

For entree I had the Salt and Pepper Squid, which tasted neither salty or peppery, but more like they were coated in corn chips. For my main I had the... More

The menu is quite limited. We shared a glass between two for the whole meal, despite asking the waitress for a second (clean) water glass...it never came. Then the coffee and beer arrived. The coffee was AWFUL. It was burnt and had coffee grinds left in the bottom. The food...firstly, we were served our meals after 2 other tables, even... More

Fresh, new decor. Lunch meals were good quality. Would like to see jug of iced water on arrival at our table. Lovely views over the countryside.

We took the family for a dinner out one evening. The menu had a variety of choices to please everyone. Including the younger members. The wine list was also extensive. On this occasion one of the bottle of wine was off and it was replaced without any fuss whatsoever. The staff was attentive and make you feel welcome and at... More
