We chanced upon this wee gem of a restaurant after being refused a table at the pub next door, we suspect because we had a 10yo and a 6yo with us. Thank goodness we ended up in the Clock Tower. The lady serving us was fantastic, the food tasty and and well presented, and the kids allowed half portions of... More

We had a beautiful meal here last night. There were 6 of us and everyone loved their food. The food was tasty, presented really nicely and served with smiles. The restaurant is contemporary in style and has a relaxing feel. Our hosts were also serving another couple tables plus a table of 27 people, who didn't speak a lot of... More

Started our night with a couple of drinks in the upstairs bar, cosy small bar with lots of comfortable seating. The bistro has a lovely homely feel with a great atmosphere. Excellent menu and specials made it difficult to choose what to have! I had the pate and the burger.....huge stack of oatcakes with the pate which made a very... More

I booked a table for our annual chums night for Christmas and have to say not at all disappointed.

Popped in here for a quick snack, we were greeted very nicely by a pleasant young lady and shown to a table. The decor was quite simple but worked well we had a table beside the toilets and where I did not like the male and female signs I'm sure some people will like them, we did hear a child... More

We are delighted that you enjoyed the food and if we kept you waiting I apologise but we take great pride in preparing and cooking all our food fresh to order. Hopefully... More

We went here for lunch recently. Nice venue, close to the Abbey. Lovely, friendly service. It was laid back so if you are into speedy eating, you might want to ask for things to speed up a little. That said, I liked it a lot. I had haggis balls - a larger than the advertised starter portion. Others had a... More

A smallish restaurant with simple decor but friendly staff who looked after us when we walked in without reservations. I liked the food on the two evenings we ate there. Not a great variety of drinks but enough choice of wine and a small selection of beers. Tap water provided and topped up without asking.

What a place the food was to die for. Good service from the waitress. So glad we choose it the fish was cooked to perfection. My only complaint is that the carrots we're a little sweet for my taste buy apart from that lovely. Would I return oh yes as soon as we're close enough.
