“Excellent food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 22, 2014

We ate here on the 16th of August.
It was the first time and I was very surprised by the taste and quality of the beef and Haggis main meal after all you can cook steak at home but never as good as this.
Orkney cheese for starters and cranachan for sweet.
A hearty meal with the steak cooked as I liked it.
Thank you and will return here again without hesitation.

“Excellent food and service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 21, 2014

My wife and I visited on the evening of Aug 22nd for our 40th wedding anniversary. We weren't too sure what to expect but we were delighted with our evening. 12 oz sirloins for both of us were cooked to perfection, well done for me, rare for my wife and the other items on the plate also cooked well. Starters and sweets again were excellent. The two waitresses who attended to us were most attentive, efficient and helpful, all credit to them as the restaurant was very busy. All in all our special night out was a success. A tip however, book a table in advance as we saw many people being turned away.

“A superb family meal.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 21, 2014

Have been here many times before and never disappoints. This time went for a family meal and had the haggis starter. Beautiful every time. Had a selection of mains. Rump steak (so much flavour and cooked to perfection) venison steak special and the trout special. Trout was amazing in particular. And to.finish it all off a massive slice of banoffee pie and some strong coffee. The whole meal was complimented with a beautiful bottle of malbec. Would also like to.mention the service was efficient, friendly and informative with Jenny being a stand out. Value for money is great with big portions. Thank you again.

“Lovely”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 13, 2014

Had gammon steak and Cod fillet - both excellent. Puddings were sticky toffee pudding and profiteroles which we're delicious. We booked and lots of people were turned away so just goes to show how popular it is.

“Quite possibly the best steak of my life!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 9, 2014

This place knows its steak. It cooks it right, (mine's a rare), it presents it beautifully and it serves it with a smile.
Fabulous meal!
A blink and you'd miss it steakhouse, you'll probably need to book.
