I was on a train journey south from Morayshire and I looked for a quick but tasty meal near the station while I waited for my next train. The Gaslamp provided it. I had a beef curry with salad. Both tasted fine and the salad was freshly made. I enjoyed the whole experience; I'd go back for another meal .... More

Quiet on a Tuesday night. Quick service. Fantastic prices! Paid 5.80 pounds for two pints. Nice atmosphere.

Popped in for a few drinks and it was not too busy. The karaoke was on and some weren't too bad!!! There was a mixed crowd and although it was a bit tired it was fine for a few drinks

You might take a deep breath before entering this place. But because you want that that half price Groupon deal you will take the plunge. We checked this place out (peered thru window) before deciding whether to return to our hotel to get "dressed up". We didn't - this place needs some work, but you know what - the food... More

we used the fajita groupon on a Saturday lunchtime which was given to us as a gift. On entering we could see hand written signs saying no card payments accepted, then noticed that we were the only 2 people dining (there were 2locals at the bar) The waitress quite clearly wasn't interested in us and gave more attention to watching...

Needs a total overhaul, it was freezing, food and cocktails were terrible, could've put on a much better night spending £25 in Markies. Staff nice enough just not really interested in us. We all felt like we had had got the wrong place as it was worse than the cafe in Eastenders. Put it back to the way it was... More

not sure what all the people giving bad reviews where expecting, I also used a Groupon voucher and thought it was great value for the price. The cocktail wasn't fantastic but enjoyed the food, decent size portion & tasted good. Initially the waitress was going to turn us away as we arrived at 19:30 but when I said food was... More

Like a lot of the reviewers on here, I dined at 'the Gas Lamp' after buying a voucher on Groupon. Upon arriving we were asked if we had booked a table. This was around 5:30 in the evening and looking around the place was dead - there was only one other couple sitting there. The waitress informed me that we... More

Went to the gaslamp with a groupon voucher like Everyone else. I had a strawberry daquary. Personally thought it was a bit sour. The food was not so good. The sauces came from a squeezy bottle and they looked nasty. The nachos were hot but very bland and they should use homemade salsa and fresh sour cream, it's cheaper than... More
