Reviewed January 1, 2013

Great food and good deal through 5pm website. A little out of the centre but worth the extra 5 minute walk.

“Great Food”
Reviewed December 17, 2012

Normally when you go out for a Christmas dinner in a large group you end up disappointed by over boiled veggies and dried up meat. Not a bit of it here! I can honestly say that this is the best meal I have had in many a Christmas. I highly recommend the shin of beef - slow cooked so the meat just falls apart and melts in your mouth. All dishes were cooked to perfection and I cannot praise the kitchen highly enough. Just a shame that front of house the waitress was so stroppy as to make you feel you were being served by Harry Enfield's "Kevin"!

Ate here just before heading upstairs to a concert. Never knew the cafe/restaraunt existed. Nice surprise, food was very good - Scottish fare. Service good. Would visit again.
