Went here on our first night in Balloch. Service was very good but food was average. Also tried some of the guest ales and did not taste great. Which was a shame.

We arrived without a booking on a very sunny Sunday evening (02/03/2017) but they found us a table and all 4 of us had excellent meals with excellent friendly service and at a very reasonable price.
