We went to the Y-Not on a blustery afternoon when we really needed some warmth and food. We had the cheese burger and chips and were really pleased that the burger came with a brioche style bun (including wee stick to stop the burger slipping out of the bun) some good skinny chips and a little coleslaw. Service was quick... More

Went out of their way to ensure I had vegan friendly food, they understood what I would/wouldn't eat which is refreshing. Great service and fab food.

Having eaten here on my last visit we decided to eat here again - could be good if more attention to detail was given - have to order food at the bar which is fine but at no point was there a check back to see if all was good with the food - the menu stated that the meal... More

We ate twice here while staying a few days. There food was always extremely good and a free top up of hot water in the tea pot was very welcome. You can choose whatever you like from a very varied choice for Breakfast and there are numerous delicious dishes to choose from on the Lunch boards. We would definitely recommend... More

Myself and my partner decided to come here for a few drinks and have dinner. We both had the Scrabster fry up off of the special menu and it was absolutely delicious (scampi, fish goujoun, calamari and a fish bon bon, served with chips and peas). Service was quick and efficient, and the bar has u huge variety of beverages.

Forgot to take photos of food because we were too busy enjoying ourselves. We had nachos to share as a starter and was delicious. The jalapeño not too hot... More
