Our family have been to this Restaurant numerous times for meals and each time we go we are never disappointed. There is a wide choice of food to suit all tastes. And substantial portion sizes too. The staff are very efficient too. My only bug bear is that sometimes you have to wait a while for your food. But honestly... More

Lovely place to meet friends for lunch. Plenty of choices on menu, and lovely, attentive staff who didn't make us feel rushed. Would recommend.

Pit Stop turned into a 2 course delicacy. Chip Shop Delight for starter (shared) Venison Dish, and Steak and Ale Pie. Can't wait to go back and try more dishes

We visited on a Sunday lunch time and the restaurant was packed. Always a good sign and we weren't disappointed. Thankfully we had called ahead to book as I think we had the last table. The menu was extensive ensuring that there was something for everyone and the welcome was very warm.

Great menu and some with a great Scottish twist. Flying Scot burger with haggis and black pudding - fantastic. All of our party of 6 were very satisfied and that was in spite of being stuffed by big breakfast and substantial lunch. Shouldn't have but very glad we did.

Fantastic selection and great quality. Be prepared though as the portions are extremely generous so the fantastic desert is a real challenge.
