Juicy burgers covered in tasty toppings. Great pub atmosphere and the guy that served us was super polite and cheery.

“Lovely cosy atmosphere”
Reviewed November 13, 2013 via mobile

This place has a lovely romantic atmosphere and is great for dinner or drinks with friends or partner. The burgers are fantastic and with 2 for 1 a bargain! Good drinks selection including cocktails. All in all a great wee place.

“Lovely Setting but a bit over-priced”
Reviewed November 6, 2013

The decor in this place really is lovely they have done a great job of emphasising all of the best bits of the architecture but unfortunaltely it does not have a particulalrly friendly feel, the waiting staff were efficient but a little aloof. I had a burger which was good, although the chips were average, however, at £10 it seemed pricey to me. After some inspection it appears that for most of the week the burgers are buy one get one free so actually for £10 for two thats pretty good value, unless you are eating alone

“good for a wee eat out....”
Reviewed September 22, 2013

Like the decor - they have a wee beer garden outside when its summer. Drinks are usual town prices.....great selection of burgers - I had the black sparrow burger and can recommend this. Chips are of the chunky variety and presentation is good. The nacho's I can highly recommend and I would make a return visit just for them! It is ultimately a pub and dont think its a place I would bring the family, but for a couple or girls evening / day out its great. Location is obviously a wee bit more out there if you are out and about in town but worth a visit. Been there in the evening for drinks and again, a good chilled out clientele.

“Burgers all round!”
Reviewed September 21, 2013 via mobile

Burgers all round for our group of 8! Well presented and fantastic chips...but the burgers were slightly disappointing! A little bland for something that sounds so good!
Service was good...felt that we had to wait a little while for drinks but food came rather quickly! Great atmosphere in this small pub!
Overall...A little pricier than your average pub grub but good for the occasional lunch/dinner. Get the chips...they were amazing!
