“Service was pretty dire............we nearly left.”
Reviewed March 14, 2013

The place was busy and understaffed and the few staff that were there appeared to be organising accommodation as well. After several requests for service and after at least half an hour we got to place a drinks order ( and we had a reservation!). We were actually in the process of researching where else we could eat when someone eventually arrived to take a drinks order. The food was ok on the whole but not so good it was worth putting up with the appalling service. They need more staff.

“Lovely outdoor area, relaxing with good staff”
Reviewed February 26, 2013

Only went in for a drink this time, but the meals are usually pretty good too... Loved the garden and the old school relics within the place. Menu could be a little upgraded but otherwise good hearty meals!

“We'll be back”
Reviewed February 17, 2013

A friend recommended calling in here for a cheese scone as they are "the best" so we arrived at around 11am & ordered a scone. We sat in the beautifully cared for garden area which really impressed my partner, he said it was the most loved outdoor area we had dined in. The scone was delicious & one was large enough to share. As we were still in Clyde at lunchtime we decided to call back as we were impressed by the lunch menu. It was busy but we ordered pies, one vegetarian & the other chicken & cashew nut. They arrived promptly & were delicious, accompanied by chips & salad. By the time we left the outside tables were all full & many indoor seats occupied as well. Look forward to returning.

“Great food, ambiance and hosts”
Reviewed February 4, 2013

The menu is very large with tons to choose from. My husband ordered something fried and I ordered lamb. The lamb was cooked perfectly - med rare - is my preference. We stayed late and drank with the owners swapping stories. It was a great night!
