Really nice food I'm a vegetarian and went out of there way to accommodate me as some of the vegetarian options weren't suitable. My daughters loved there meals as well. Would recommend a stop here for anyone.

We arrived here at around 5pm on Friday. We have been before and although it has not been spectacular it has always been pleasant. We were not asked to order drinks whilst looking at the menu but the waitress who came did pick up on that and took our drinks order with the food. Two of our party of five... More

Called in for lunch and there was a great selection to choose from. The food was well presented and the service was very good. I felt that the restaurant was a little cold however as it was a Monday and not too many customers this was maybe the reason.

Dined here as a couple at around 8pm on a Saturday night. Upon arrival there was no record of our booking, however the waiter promptly found us a table anyway. Nice buzz in the restaurant and a man singing, which was a nice change to the usual cd playing in restaurants. We had the pate and haggis scotch egg starters... More

We arrived on time, to stand and wait while what appeared to be a hostess and then a manager walked passed us. A simple - "we'll be with you in a minute would have been so welcoming!!!!!". The food was really good and we would return for this reason, although it would be good if your quarter bottles of white... More

Decided to go out for tea and treat ourselves but were sorely disappointed at the service and food. Asked for the selection of breads with oils and dips and. It came on a bread board. The bread was ever so plain ... three white triangles and one brown and barely warm. One dip had basil in and not too bad,... More
