Myself and three colleagues dined here in July when on a work trip in the area. The establishment itself is clean, modern and it has a vast array of drinks to chose from on arrival. It painted a good, positive first impression. The food was ok, nothing more, nothing less. My colleagues thought theirs was ok also but none of... More

Visited on recommendation, but have to say I wasn't impressed. I ordered a margarita, which arrived in a small cocktail and was only half full, could hardly taste the tequila. My hubby had fish & chips, which he advised was average, I had the chicken Balmoral, the chicken was tiny & haggis tasteless, the only good thing was the whisky... More

My Wife and I took my mother to The Boathouse to celebrate her 90th birthday. The staff made us feel really welcome and this made our experience extra special. We are regulars at this restaurant but this was a really good way to give a 90 year old a special treat. The atmosphere was really good and we enjoyed our... More

At dinner I ordered a "Blue" 12 oz Rib Eye. The steak that arrived was anaemic and barely 8oz pre cooked weight, no way was it 12 oz.. They did try again, but the second attempt was barely better. The waitress admitted it was the first time she had ever taken an order for a "blue" steak. Seems like the... More

Partner & I went for a quiet lunch ( our first and now prob our last visit) Arrived to a fairly quiet early lunch-time. I requested to sit in an unoccupied quiet corner to see out window to our locked bikes. I was told "that table needs cleaned, I'll take you through the other side" Ok , not what we... More

Friendly staff, great evening meal, nice atmosphere and clean, spacious travel lodge style rooms. Some rooms have mini fridges, ours didn't but that wasn't a problem because we usually can't sleep if they 'hum' too much. Breakfasts are very hearty so be warned, the full Scottish was huge.

Visited this restaurant as a couple while staying elsewhere in the locality. Mid week evening was not too busy and we were quickly shown to a table with a view over the Marina and canal. Staff were quick to bring menu and offer drinks, but took a while to take our order. We shared bread and olives to start, which... More

pretty average fare and overpriced, ordered a small fish and chips which consisted of half a fish in overcooked batter, not great in fact mostly batter and therefore not value for money, chips were fine, all in all a bit disappointing

We visited on a Tuesday so it was nice and quite and we opted for the tapas so we could all share. Despite it being a garlic overload it was really tasty and served quickly and with a smile. The prawns were my favourite although they all went down well. And the staff were attentive and friendly. P.s. they serve... More
