If you are after a lighter bite, we also serve a selection of hot panini's every day, just ask us what's cooking

Had a lovely Scottish breakfast hear last week Friday, following a very good evening at the Commonwealth Games in Glasgow. The service was excellent and the food was even better.

“Want good service? Go elsewhere! ”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 19, 2014 via mobile

Food was okay but service was non existent! Staff seemed like they were having a bad day. No smiles or much enthusiasm for the job. Waited to be seated but no one attended to us, so had to go to bar to ask server, as we needed a space for a pram. No one took our food or drinks order so again, had to go up to bar and ask. Asked a server for an empty mug as we needed it to warm up a baby bottle and gave a face like i ruined her day. The food was fairly average. Was very disappointing as we visited here last year and both food and service was superb. Either they were having a bad day or they have gone seriously down hill.

“The calm amongst the chaos”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 19, 2014 via mobile

We called in on the off chance we could get a couple of meals for part of the group, my brother and his young daughter. They seated us and took fantastic care over my niece. She was treated to excellent fish and chips, plus drink and dessert on the kids menu whilst we were able to relax and catch up. I have a lovely moments from the day as she could colour in the menu. It was a really nice find and I would certainly ho back.
