Sometimes visit on way back from walks in the country. Great hearty pud food. Good selection and good deals with the set menus. The staff are always so friendly and extremely helpful. Definitely worth visiting.

I have stopped here for lunch on a couple of occasions and the Cullen skink is excellent. This time I had time for dinner - 2 courses for £15.95. The crab and prawn timbale was very tasty with a side salad and smoked salmon - generous portion size. Then the 3 meat main course with peppercorn sauce. A mini chicken... More

Have eaten in the Minishant often and the standard is good. A wee bit disappointed in the price for Alcohol Free Beer. Since the lowering of the alcohol limit, the Minishant seems to be cashing in on the a/f beer.A bit cynical, comparing the Minishant's price with other restaurants in the area.

Took my wife and daughter out for lunch as this restaurant was getting good reports, I would recommend anyone to go here, the food is superb and large portions for all. We all had the steak pie which was wonderful.the restaurant is small so I suggest you book to avoid disappointment.

We were surprised to see that we had not reviewed the Minishant before now. We have been regulars at this restaurant for many, many years and it has never disappointed. The quality of food is second to none and terrific value for money. Yesterday I had their "Trio of meat" which included chicken, ham, and steak and had to comment... More

3 of us went out for an early XMAS meal as we wont be able to when the time comes. We had a 3 course meal with soft drinks and we thoroughly enjoyed the food. The ambience and the staff attentiveness is first class in this restaurant. We were sat next to the open log fire and were comfortably warm.... More
