“the atmosphere”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 23, 2013

It's a bit run down and needs a few bob spent on it.
Sitting down to food needs a quiet environs and this was def not the case here.
The food was nothing to rave about very ordinary ie pub grub.
Service just enough to get by

“Great food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 19, 2013

The place was packed full when we went in, however when we asked we were allowed to sit at the bar and have a meal as there were no tables left. The staff were pretty nice, they had options to try the various beers they had. But the food we had was absolutely amazing, we both had chicken stuffed with haggis.

“Very nice pub grub”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 28, 2012 via mobile

The tables are cramped together but the food produced is of very high quality.

The tower of haggis is particularly worthy of mention although all the dishes my family had were of good (or better) quality.

Gripes would be the the drinks. I asked if they had tennants extra (which was on the menu) - this resulted in me getting tennants 'extra' cold; not what I asked for. Also, one of the two waitresses on duty stated that she couldn't make a latte...

Overall, the food was good but there are issues to address...

Ate here for the second time and this time had the highland burger, can not fault anything in this place including the vast variety of real ales they have.

Will be visiting again in mid feb!
