Quite a nice pub with reasonable service but found the food just average, but trying to be something it is not.

Had a great meal menu small but good quality food very helpful staff and nice atmosphere a wee bit pricey ! All in all would recommend but don't expect a cheap night and drinks are on the high side of being expensive

After reading a couple of recent reviews, we decided to visit the General Burgoyne for a special night out, but what a disappointment this turned out to be. My first beer was completely off and although it was eventually changed, I heard the manager saying he thought there was nothing wrong with the first one. Not a good sign, because... More

We booked a table for a family celebration a few weeks in advance & phoned the day before to check the booking. When we arrived for our evening meal we found that the restaurant was closed! We were told that there was a problem with the floor & it was closed for "health & safety" reasons. We were offered a... More

Food was excellent, my husband and I had Turkey which was lovely (not quite enough for hubbie)! Daughter and another child in the party didn't have a Starter so we we're a little disappointed that their main meal came after Adults Main Meals were served! On the big plus side the atmosphere was great so was the Toffee Vodka!!!!! Xxx

A brilliant time was had by everyone seeing in the New Year at the General Burgoyne - the food, as ever, was simply excellent and beautifully presented on the plate, the fine wines on offer were perfect accompaniments and (after the end-of-year quiz !!) Craig did a sterling job of setting off the firework display in the heavy, cold rain... More

One of our favourite places to eat, been many many times and never failed to enjoy. Especially love the Sunday lunch menu, we always intend to have three courses but by the time we have finished our starter and main, we never have room for dessert. Our last meal there was lunch for a tenner, delicious and great value.

We had an excellent meal here. Waitresses attentive and food excellent, as usual! Also went to a Christmas party upstairs and the pie and peas were also very good. Would recommend this restaurant to anyone who wants to enjoy a really excellent meal and you won't be disappointed.

The menu doesn't give the full game away and that's the beauty. I went for a meal with a couple of family members and my husband (one of which is rather difficult to please). We were greeted warmly as you would expect and had pre dinner drinks in the beautiful and cosy bar area. Our orders were taken promptly with... More
