Don't normally leave reviews for anything, I say it as it is at the time. Everywhere you go what one person likes the other hates. Been to the L & D over the years and yeah have seen it change but I cant fault it. Was there yesterday with 2 elderly aunts and we had a fantastic meal. Adam and... More

Have enjoyed previous family visits here but today's experience changed that. Firstly, the waitress couldn't tell us what ciders were available but didn't offer to find out. She then took around 15 minutes to then take our food order. We did ask for some alterations for example I asked for no tomato on my chicken burger and for no onion... More

This used to be our fallback place to take the kids, but after tonights disastrous meal, we won't be coming back. The night stared badly when the waitress obviously didn't know the menu. Then when she spilled my pint and didn't offer to get a fresh one, it was clear that this wasn't going to be good. Out of the... More

Not a very nice bar. Restaurant is a conservatory but tables too cramped. It's frozen food.Only redeeming factor is the old well in the inner room.

Instead of looking through the bus window at the Laird & Dog, get off that bus and go right in, you will not regret it. We were met with a smile and served very quickly. The portions were more than ample and all the food was lovely and hot. Will certainly be returning to this pub / restaurant and this... More

I have lived in lasswade for over 17 years and the laird and dog was outstanding for food and great value for money . Went tonight for dinner and was disappointed that they had lost their personal identity and had a limited and poor menu that is sadly trying to compete with the award winning papermill restaurant x when ordering...

My partner & myself came here for a dinner whilst away. The staff were so friendly and as we hadn't booked, they got us a lovely table asap. The waiter was lovely and got me a meal that i would eat as I'm a rather fussy eater. The good was reasonably priced too. I will definitely be backed!

Visited this restaurant with my wife on the 11/05/2014 the menu was very limited and we did not like anything on offer. We asked the waitress if she could dish up something else for us that she did but was not overly impressed for the price that we paid.
