Vegetables came as part of the main course on the plate with potatoes separately and plenty for us this time. Extras were the freshly made bread as you were seated and a pre-starter of chicken liver... read more

OK we knew that the new proprietors had a hard act to follow in this lovely Art Deco restaurant which had been, let's face it, a favourite haunt for several years. We tried twice - a fair enough shot - but, while tasty enough, the portions are small (half a slice of bread each with soup as lunch?) and this... More

We made a last minute decision to eat out on Hogmanay, and managed to book a table at the Carron for their special tasting menu with matching wine. Maybe the best decision we made all year! From the bubbly and canapés at 6.30 pm to the coffee and petit fours around 10.30 pm we were served a feast of great... More

We decided to share a meal with our best friends instead of exchanging presents. The food was cooked to perfection. My scallops were SO delicious and the venison that followed was top notch. The welcome and service throughout the evening could not have been better. We all enjoyed our shared Christmas present and will be back again, hopefully many times... More
