Popped in for lunch with family including two very young grandsons. Clearly, children are welcome and well looked after. A very friendly staff took our order and the food arrived after a short time. Excellent food representing good value. Much better than many pubs visited in the past. Would not hesitate to visit again.

My second time of visiting, this is a tidy and straightforward pub with little to criticise although nothing exceptional to comment on. Where it does score, perhaps, is on value for money; the portion sizes are good and as long as they keep that up I shall be keen to visit again.

The staff were very helpful and happy, they had set up a high chair for my sisters little girl all ready for out arrival. The table... More

Good wholesome (but with a modern twist) food and a nice buzzy atmosphere makes The Highlander a great place to visit. This is especially the case in the Winter as it is feels nice and cosy. Car park gets full quickly as it's not that large but you can often park on the roads opposite. It is definitely worth a... More

Very very nice. I was surprised to see a pub serving food so busy during the week. Clearly the refurbishment they did a while ago had a positive effect. Personally this was my first time here and I went with some friends if mine. The food was very good and served in a reasonable time, all dishes in one go... More

We've been for a family roast up twice in the past 6 months or so and have been delighted by the quality of the roast dinner on both occasions. The service of the bar and floor staff is friendly and competent. If special requests are asked for they are provided without hesitation. Although it's not the cheapest place to eat,... More

Love the atmosphere of this pub. Decor is trendy with a great menu choice. Service very good. Food arrived promptly and full of flavour. Always a good sign when a pub is buzzing with people. Will be returning.

The Highlander is one of my most local and also most favourite pubs! The food is delicious and the staff are so lovely. The only slight draw back for me is that the vegetarian options are a bit limited. However, the one or two veggie plates that there are, are always topnotch. So, that doesn't stop it being excellent!
