Just came in for a quick lunch special deal. The restaurant was pretty quiet and the service was OK. The bangers and mash with the beer was good but nothing fantastic. I don't expect anything out of the ordinary for fifteen bucks tho. I will continue to return for an evening drink for whatever beer is on special as it's... More

Liked: Came in from the cold to a warm inviting bar. Orders come quickly and are plentiful. If you're into seafood chowder you won't be disappointed here (however, easy on the salt!) Well presented meals and plenty of it. Attentive staff.

We are regular visitors to Monteiths and used to always be happy with the food and level of service. However recently it seems to have gone to the pack. We dined on a Sunday night, the restaurant was about half full. When we arrived a very stressed out man told us he couldn't seat us and we'd "just have to... More

Nice atmosphere but food was disappointing. Dry chicken, chunky chips were quite miserable and more like the dregs from the bottom of the bag and a bit oily tasting. Pasta had a dollop of garlic added and not stirred through evenly and lacked seasoning.

The food is "OK" for basic, Pub meal level of cooking. When we were there we had the feeling the place was understaffed and the kids Burger was disappointing,... More

We had a good feed at pub. Recommend the bread loafs - nice and warm and yummy. Meals ok. My husbands meal of battered fish was a bit gooey.

Wait staff seemed a little inattentive and served our vegetarian order with meat and both carbonara orders were bland and certainly didnt have the garlic stirred in as it was thick in patches. Chicken in the burgers was dry and stringy. Desserts were adequate however far less whipped cream would be appropriate as just bulked up with it. Also noticed... More
