Food & service was great. Unfortunately the first table we were seated at was so dark that we couldn’t read the menu. We were moved and it worked out ok

Booking the table was so easy, we were a wee bit late for our booking but that was not an issue and the staff were just lovely, nice social interaction and catered for our evey need. All the food was delicious and my scampi was just perfect. A lovely wee visit, can't wait for a return visit.

Sunday roast extrewli disappointing.
Limp veg
. Greasy gravy.. Lumpy mash and a cremated Yorkshire pudding and the most unappetising cauliflour cheese I have ever had. Had to be returned untouched.. Manager apologetic and offered another choice of Mel but decided to leave hungry and disappointed

We dined in Bob Stewart’s on a Thursday night to celebrate our son’s promotion and booked at the last minute through opentable. The experience could not have been easier and when we arrived the table was set waiting for us. The restaurant was very atmospheric and the staff very friendly and attentive!
We started with an excellent pint of Guinness and went straight into the main course, and while the food was a little slow to arrive it was not an issue because the surrounding’s were so pleasant.
The food was excellent, we had 3 different mains and every one was top quality with good size portions.
Thank you Bob Stewarts for a lovely evening, we will be back.

I had booked the table for 4 people on a recommendation of my step son. The outside staff were very friendly and helpful. Inside the building we were greated with the same friendliness and led to a booth in the window set up for 4 people. The service was excellent, food was fantastic and reasonably priced. I highly recommend Bob Stewart's to anyone local or visiting the area.

The food was fantastic, service was attentive but not intrusive. We had main course and desert we weren’t rushed nor did we feel we were waiting too long at any point . I was disappointed that we couldn’t have tea or coffee to finish , no one alerted us that it was a quiz night or prompted us to order tea or coffee . After desert we were asked if we’d like anything else but on ordering a tea and coffee were told we couldn’t have it as they were setting up for the quiz . We chatted , paid and left 20 minutes later and the quiz hadn’t started .

First time eating at Bob Stewart’s in a long time, excellent service and great quality food! We were seated away from the main Resturant which would be better for ambience but can only applaud Bobs for a great evening

Booked table for 7.45, ordered meal that was just ok and then at 8.45 staff started cleaning up tables, turned of music and we more or less dumped out of restaurant and it closed by 9.00. There was no mention of this closing time when booking , spent ~£80 in less than 1 hour and staff only interested in getting home early

Lovely dinner accommodated last minute . They even let us order over the phone due to the fact we were running late and wouldn't have made last orders for food.
Food was great and service excellent.
As reflected in the tip left.
Thanks
