    We had a lovely meal celebrating my birthday. The food was delicious, I had the ox cheek, and it was cooked to perfection. The staff were very welcoming and attentive. The atmosphere was warm and friendly, lovely decor and general ambience.

    Unfortunately our experience wasn't the best In Scotland burgers need to be cooked well done , which I didn't realise and mine was inedible. Tough & dry. Service was great and he totally understood, took the item off the bill.. Other food items ordered were ok, not outstanding:
