..and I have spent a LOT of time in Scotland and England. Our dining experience last night (for five, 3 adults, two kids) was much better than what some of the recent reviews indicate. Granted, it was our first. We had struck out with 3 other restaurants in the area which apparently don't open for supper during the week! (That was disappointing, as we were looking for vegan/vegetarian food.) so we ended up at the Breadalbane by default. We walked in to a hullabaloo of noise and the smell of beer. Understandable, as the bar is up front, and it was filled with a large party of men who later went to eat in one of the rooms - so we chose another room, and it was fine. Actually, the noise and smells reminded me EXACTLY of a Scottish pub! and I liked it, although I am neither a drinker nor smoker. The venue is warm and cozy and very old-ish, lots of wood and beams and low ceiling, almost crooked floors, just like the UK. Our booth-table was large and clean and good solid wood. The kids were presented with crayons immediately. Our young server was prompt and sweet, although she made several mistakes on the final bills (none that were really disastrous, and they were easily and quickly fixed.) Between us, we had the huge veggie burger - delicious - the curry, a kid's pasta, and two melts with salads. All good. Their wine list was a little lacklustre, just Ontario wines, but my Cab-shiraz was ok and only $8. The kids got "free" freezies for dessert with the kid's meal...not much but a nice gesture that made them happy. we enjoyed our meal. The place was very full, the atmosphere lively, and there was a lot of laughter from other tables. We will certainly return.
