Reviewed August 21, 2013

Have been there 3 times over 2 years (twice in 3 nights), and always excellent. Decor original, staff polite, food lovely, and Sylvia made us feel like old friends. Try the haggis balls!
The bill came to less than the "eat all you like" buffet at a local Indian restaurant that we also tried, and was certainly reasonable for such quality

“Great food and air condditioned”
Reviewed July 17, 2013

Going for lunch in Gala during hottest day of the year and was heading into town. Past Quins and since it was so hot (80 degrees) I decided to give it a try. It was great, first it has a/c which is unusual for Scotland, usually it's just a few open windows hoping for a breeze. Next, the service was fast, the food - haddock and chips - was great and the prices reasonable.

Lots of folks coming in for coffee as well as lunch and the other plates I saw were quite appealing.
