On a visit to Falkirk to meet a friend (who is fairly new to the area) we parked in a car park nearby and asked one of the locals if she could recommend a place for lunch.
Immediately she said the Orchard is the place to go. I noticed that a 2 course lunch for seniors from the Xmas menu was about £4 less than the norm. at £9.95.
I went for lentil soup and ribeye steak with the trimmings (avoiding the temptation of the Turkey) The others went for a 2 courser of Fish and chips and a sweet at £9.95.
Soup, which was most unlike Lentil arrived hot with 2 pieces of bread. Very enjoyable.
Main courses took a while to arrive, tho' by now place was very busy. My meal was tasty, but I would have preferred some of the items hotter. Cleared my plate.
Fish and chips came with peas etc. Batter real crispy and fish tasty. Friend got 2 bits of fish. Both remarked on the good tasting chips, with part skins on.
Cosy environment for meal and chat. Staff attentive.
Would recommend this place and would have given 5/5 for value etc. but give 4/5 due to my preference above. Would certainly pay a return visit.
