“late afternoon lunch”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2012

We arrived at the Bothy bar at 4.30pm on a busy Saturday afternoon for drinks, and asked to book a table for 5pm for the 3 of us. To our great disappointment we were told the restaurant was fully booked for the evening. We said we would give the table back before 6pm, and they were more than happy to accomodate us. The service, surroundings, atmosphere, and most importantly the food were faultless, the tastiest lamb gigot ever. Can't wait to return.

“Team Christmas Lunch”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 10, 2012

Although the place was absolutely heaving on Friday afternoon, we could not fault the service nor the quality of food.
Professional, but down to earth front of house staff backed up by what must be a slick kitchen team.

Recommended.

“Amazing!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 9, 2012

As a group of 6, we were incredibly lucky to get a table here on a Friday afternoon. The service was superb, and we felt well-looked after from the moment we arrived and we were seated at the bar for drinks while tables were put together for us, until we left full and content.

Both the lunch menu and the full a la carte menu had so many fantastic options, that I don't think it has ever taken a group of people so long to decide what to order in a restaurant! I myself chose the haggis starter, followed by macaroni cheese with a side portion of hand cut chips, but all over the table were culinary delights incuding salmon, burgers, white bait, mussels, salads, breads, and much more.

We enjoyed visiting this restaurant so much that we did try to come back the following afternoon, unfortunately they didn't have space for a large group on a Saturday, hardly surprising given what an excellent restaurant this is.
