“Great atmosphere”
Reviewed August 31, 2013

Really great pub food, just what you were looking for.
However I did find that they changed their veggie burgers and they just are not as good as before, give's me an excuse to order their excellent macaroni cheese instead though.

“Not really "Family Friendly"”
Reviewed August 24, 2013

Met friends and their three children who are under 8. We had to ask for the children's menu even though the kids are so small. After the food arrived, we we were told that everyone present had to order food and that it had to be a main course: chips didn't count. It does not say that on the menu, the website or in the bar. If we had known this we may well have gone somewhere else. I can see the point of the policy but it should be clearer.
The food is ok and decent value. It's the kind of place that no one will hate, and no one will love. Really average.

“Fab Service and Decent pub food”
Reviewed August 13, 2013 via mobile

Ma Cameron's is a favourite of me and my friends for something quick to eat and a few drinks.

It has all the usual pub style food at good prices and really friendly staff that seem to enjoy their job.

Special mention to Craig who carried our food to the rooftop and had the banter and also hazel who is cheeky but knows how to gauge the customers!

If you're looking for cheap food, good drinks and a nice wee pub try ma Cameron's.

“Drinks are good food is poor”
Reviewed July 30, 2013

It works great as a drinking pub with reasonable prices and large selection, and a lovely rooftop beer decking.

Went Monday evening around 7.45pm.

For food it is poor, 30 min wait for a burrito and basic salad.
Food quality:
Imagine those grotty bits of salad leaf at the bottom of a bag, completely mushy or brown, that was the garnish salad for the burrito.
Burrito tasted pretty meh, a chunk of pork stodge, and like when you don't mix in Bisto powder properly you get those lumps of unidentifiable brown gunk. Although the piece of avocado was good.
Sweet potato fries were surprisingly good, crispy and tasty.
Salad was a bit sparse but a lot more fresh than the garnish.
Tomato relish was very much industrial grade glue.

The food is much overpriced for what you get, so don't get anything other than bar snacks as at least you're getting the quality you pay for (low price low quality small portions).

If you're looking for a nice place to drink though it's definitely worth going to.
