Great food

Have been here a couple of times and found it excellent. Lovely ambience, great food and good service. Menu is varied with something to suit everyone, and prices are very reasonable. Highly recommended.

Whenever we come into Helensburgh for lunch this is our first choice by far. The decor and surroundings are beautiful and peaceful situated in a back lane in a beautifully renovated old building. The staff are lovely, the food fresh and delicious and not expensive.

Food was good as well as the service. However one downfall for me was the music it was a bit loud, and i am hard of hearing so had a diffucult time talking to my wife.

A decent meal in a decent pub. I would feel comfortable eating in here alone if I had to, and I can't say that about many pubs. Nice food at decent prices and good service.

A superb restaurant! Excellent quality of food and an extremely helpful staff! We've visited on two occasions now and both were different, but equally good.
