Lunch with a friend. Lovely outside table, good distancing, felt safe. Food was lovely, would definitely recommend
Waiter unaware of deals. Hurried from table told 20 mins then 5 mins within mins! Service usually excellent. Not this time.
An excellent meal in a safe and pleasant setting. Thoroughly enjoyed our anniversary meal and grateful for the special attention received!
The food is getting worse every time i return so I won’t be back to eat anytime soon.
The burger was in fact two cheap burgers ( birds eye?) stacked on top of each other to make it look like a meaty feast.
Half measures avail us nothing and this is definitely the case with Mckarens..
Top notch service in clean surroundings- have a drink but eat somewhere else.
For me I didn’t think it was outstanding. Limited menu. If anything slightly upmarket pub grub. Booths are very cramped.
Good experience very organised and with 50% off food very good value for money. Only issue and its a minor one all outside diners/users directed to small unisex toilet on 1st floor.
Another excellent night here. Staff extremely helpful and arrangements safe. Good experience ☺️
Nice meal and drinks outside which was very pleasant given its September in Scotland. Service was a little slow when we first sat down which was disappointing but picked up afterwards.
All good but would have liked a lighter salad option
Sunday lunch was very good....would recommend!
Have been a few times and never disappointed. Covid measures in place are very reassuring. Sunday brunch was great. Avocado and poached eggs were excellent and the freshly squeezed orange juice really refreshing. Happily recommend
We thoroughly enjoyed our Saturday evening meal at McClaren's the food was excellent as was the service and the ambiance was just right We also found it to be great value. We would not hesitate to recommend to friends and will certainly be returning. A great addition to the culinary experience in Edinburgh
Lovely meal with attentive staff and good precautions in place for the current pandemic.
great fast service and food was amazing! We were a little late to our table and it wasn’t a problem. Would definitely come again ☺️
Tasty food, lovely decor, fabulous wait person. Definitely recommend.
Great food and service. Felt very safe with excellent covid precautions.
Felt like a limited menu like was paying for presentation as much as the food.
Very well thought out layout, great measures in place for covid, friendly staff and plenty of room. Loved the fire pit on our table. Will definitely return
Very good pub style food in a beautifully refurbished bank building. Worth a visit.
Excellent location, great food and very friendly and helpful staff. I also love that they are 'dog-friendly', even on a Friday night.
We thoroughly enjoyed our meal - the only drawback was that the lighting was a bit too dim. Will be back!
Lovely experience, beautiful decor, wonderful food
Felt nice and safe, tables well separated, friendly attentive staff 👍🏼
First time dining out since lockdown I was very impressed with the professionalism of all the staff.
Food very good value.
Booth at window perfect for our 2 households (4 persons)
Went for dinner during the Eat Out to Help Out scheme. Gorgeous food, lovely atmosphere, would go back - really tempted to try the brunch
Fantastic meal this evening and first class customer service. Starter was delicious Cancun Calamari Tacos followed by amazing Steak Frites for our main . Finished off with fabulous Whisky and coke sticky toffee pudding.
Highly recommend a visit
Food was delicious and service was good too. The restaurant was a bit loud for my liking.
Enjoyed eating here, food god and very well organised and staff friendly and efficient.
Nice food, really helpful staff and very covid secure.
Food was excellent, felt very safe regarding COVID measure
Lovely food and excellent service and value for money
All COVID measures in place but still a great place for eating and or drinking.
Excellent breakfast, good options and really flexible around preferences. Need more teaspoons
Excellent food in lovely surroundings. Had our breakfast inside and then sat outside in sun for second coffee. Lovely!
Impressed with cleanliness and social distancing.
A lovely dining experience!
Food was very average for the price tag. The decor and building itself is beautiful and very elegant, however, the food is nothing special and rather disappointing considering it costed £70 for a lunch. We did have a cocktail each too, they were delicious. I would recommend ditching the food and enjoy the beverages instead.
The covid restrictions were spot on, each table felt like its own private booth, clean & safe.
The food choices were as expected, nothing outrageous or over priced. The descriptions could have been better, I had thought my vegi burger to actually be red pepper but it was a meat substitute with red pepper added under the bun. My son had to ask if the bacon cheeseburger was a burger made of bacon or a beef cheeseburger with the addition of bacon, however this may just have been our interpretation.
With each table on a time limit, service was prompt so no chance to chill after our meal with more drinks. Again though, in the circumstances, this is to be expected.
Absolutely superb from start to finish. We were celebrating my grandmother’s birthday and they even surprised us all with a cake, candle and birthday message. She was thrilled with this. The staff were kind, friendly and efficient and the little touches and the effort and consideration they showed were second to none. I cannot recommend McLaren’s highly enough.
Excellent lunch and the waiter was terrific and definately going back again.We had the steak and chips was brilliant.jenny
We went with friends to McLaren’s on Friday for lunch. They have excellent systems in place in relation to Covid 19. The service was efficient and friendly, the food was delicious and we all loved the surroundings, so comfortable, attractive and relaxed. We will definitely be returning.
