“Good value, chilled out atmosphere in heart of Merchant City”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 21, 2013

We booked a deal on 5pm - Steak dinner with bottle of wine for 2, £30. It was great value for money, staff were good, music was good - all in all, a pretty chilled out stopping point before a big night out. The fondues seemed really popular so I reckon we'll try that on our next visit.

“Birthday Brunch before Shopping!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 17, 2013

First time here after reading the reviews and I am so glad we popped in, what a lovely place - great food with helpful and friendly staff. Eggs Benedict and Prosecco, the perfect start to the day, will definitely return one day for lunch or dinner or maybe just cakes (which looked fab)!

“Late Lunch while Christmas Shopping”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 16, 2013

Friendly helpful staff, we had the Deli Platter with bottle of wine on a 5pm deal. Plenty of items on the platter and we were able to choose the pate and cheeses (2 of each).Really enjoyed the food and left quite full. Will return for a breakfast in the future after chatting to the chef who said the Eggs Benedict are not to be missed -will definitely check them out..
Oh and background music just at the right level and is normally vinyl (you can take your own LP's!) and Blues.

“Can't wait to go back!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 16, 2013

We retreated from Christmas shopping the other day for lunch at The Plum Tree. What a treat, stornoway black pudding and poached egg (with the perfect runny yolk!) salad and delicious home made hoummous & pitta bread - washed down with a glass of prosecco. Presentation and service were excellent. The only downside was there was no room left for one of the amazing-looking desserts - will have to return for that!
