Would definitely eat here again, we both ordered a steak and a good steak is just down to precise cooking, we only had a starter and a main course as we were so full we could not manage a dessert.

Had the haggis starter which was lovely. The Caledonian steak is amazing, steak is always cooked the way that you ask for it. The whiskey sauce with the Caledonian is essential!

The food here is excellent and the service is great too. We all had steaks and they were perfectly cooked and really well presented. I would definitely recommend this place to anyone but would advise booking in advance as it's not that big and gets really busy.

Surrounded by quotes from the worst poet in the English language, the food is great poetry! They have a very good wine list and a creative menu.
