Went today for the burns night menu, because of a mix up on the website turned up early, they were however willing to serve us the taster menu early. I must say I am so glad they could the four course menu was gorgeous, loved it, wish it was on the menu all the time

Visited with family at the weekend and was disappointed. Sunday afternoon 3.30pm, one person on the bar, staff around but no one identifying the need to help with queue of 7 people waiting to be served. I went into the kitchen to find the manager to do something about it. Lots of items on the menu were not available. The... More

I've been coming here for at least 10 years and regard it as my local. The food is good, there is a good choice of ales and the staff are welcoming. Dog walkers can eat/drink with their pets in the ample outside area. Just recently though, a cat has taken residence and thinks nothing of jumping onto chairs next to... More

I ate here with a friend on Christmas Eve, and was grateful to have phoned up to reserve a table, as it was heaving! We were taken to our table by a nice guy from behind the bar and our orders were taken pretty swiftly. I asked to swap the chips with my fish finger sandwich for a salad, and... More

A good experience and good food even tho a multi chain restaurant. Tasty food, super veges, lovely surroundings, friendly and helpful staff, clean and well cared for. A bit rushed because it was the run up to Christmas week but the food was well cooked nicely served and tasty. Basically, PDG for the price.

Myself and a group of school mates began frequenting this place when we were 18. We are now in our early 30's and we still return as a group at least 3 or 4 times a year. My most recent visit there was in November for my brothers (Dan) birthday. There were 8 of us. We were seated immediately at... More

Haven't been here in ages but went on Saturday night - and what a transformation! Great look, less hideous corporate colours etc and a new fresh look. More restauranty than before but we thought it was great. Lovely food and decent service. We won't leave it so long next time.
