We visited this restaurant based on a review on Trip Advisor and we weren't disappointed. The service was prompt, the staff were efficient and the food was well presented. I have no hesitation in recommending this restaurant and will certainly visit again.

Lovely pub, really nice staff but the food is so disappointing. Had Sunday lunch: Frozen Yorkshire puddings, cheap shop bought sauce on pudding in general- bland, small portions- I so want this place to be good! But I won't go back now. The staff are nice, but it's very quiet and lacks atmosphere because of this, if the food improves... More

We visited Mrs Foreman's as a group with young kids on a Sunday afternoon for a birthday celebration. A lovely, wide variety on the menu, including a dedicated gluten free one - which is great for my sister who suffers from coeliac disease. The waiter staff were very attentive and friendly. The food was amazing - portions huge - and... More

We have been here a number of times even having 24 guests for my husband's birthday and each time the food & service has been excellent - the only problem is having to decide what to have as all are delicious.

I have been to this restaurant for dinner 5 times now and every time I am 100% pleased. I live near Glasgow and when I am visiting my very close friend and we fancy a meal out - we like to book a table at Mr Formans. I tend to choose the special of the day meal. mmmmm delicious
