The food was absolutely excellent (definitely recommend both the lamb and the cod)! Wait staff provided very good recommendations, and was as attentive as possible given that they seemed obviously short staffed. Food and drink were not well timed in relation to one another. Ambience and noise levels average. In sum, a good restaurant with food well exceeding most others at this price point, but a restaurant with some flaws--overall still very much worth going to.

We enjoyed the food very much but found the cocktails to be disappointing. They lacked flavour seemed to be watery. Good wine list.

From the minute we stepped in, all the waters, waitresses, chefs, barman, all welcomed us and put us in a great mood for the rest of the evening.
Our waiter was incredibly attentive, the service of both food and drinks was perfectly timed and absolutely everything was delicious. From start to finish the food was define and the drinks fantastic.
It was the best way to end our trip.

Three of us booked a dinner reservation for Angels with Bagpipes. After being seated at our table and given drinks menus we sat for 20 minutes before I went to the bathroom and en-route ask the waiter if he is going to take our drinks order and also give us the dinner menu. When I returned he still hadn't visited our table. After another 5 minutes we finally got to order drinks. When it came to ordering food he started asking how we'd like the 12 hour cooked beef to be cooked? We thought it was strange and as it transpired he thought we ordered a steak even though we confirmed 3 times it was the beef.

Once the drinks arrived we seems to get another waiter and after that the service was far better. It was a disappointing start to meal and we wasted 30-40 minutes meaning we were late leaving the restaurant and therefore missing out next booking at another venue.

What a fabulous place, so glad I researched and found Angels with Bagpipes. It was listed as one of the best places for haggis and it didn’t disappoint. The lunch menu is amazing, we opted for 3 courses and all were heavenly, I coupled that with a few cocktails too!!
