We have been going to this restaurant for over twenty years. It still serves, providing you order medium rare, the best steak in Scotland. There are however irritations. Going at a popular time will probably mean waiting in their seriously cramped waiting room. Depending on the size of your party, this can be over an hour, but 30-40 minutes is more usual. Drinks served during your wait are very expensive, oh and don't ask for real ale, there isn't any in the Chop and Ale House! The two maitre ds are both excellent and do a great job of looking after customers, but the Immaculately dressed Lady owner could at least spare a smile to patrons whom she knows have been regulars for a very long time. For us though it really is all about the steak, always superb, and the South African wines are without exception delicious. For a special treat, try the Springfield Whole Berry, a really fine wine.
