    We went here for dinner. 2 adults and a child. It’s a lovely restaurant with great quirky pictures and things on the wall which my grandson loved. The menu was varied. My son had prawn cocktail followed by steak pie and they looked delicious. I’ve never seen my grandson eat so much. He enjoyed his burger and chips and said the roll was different and he really liked it. I had the gif which was delicious and I only marked the food down a bit as the samphire was a bit stodgy. Desserts were great. Waitress encouraged my grandson to design his own ice cream sundae and he ate every morsel. Staff were really nice, professional, friendly and attentive

    Been plenty times before, and never had any issues , however this time our waiter didn’t even have a smile , seemed like he didn’t want to be there. Due to it being in the morning however , I’ll just assume he was tired. This will not stop me going again as normally the team are really welcoming and it great.

    Great place to meet friends with friendly welcoming staff and great food. What killed it was the live music, so loud we couldn’t hear each other talk. Looked like most people who were there and over the age of 30 were just enjoying chatting with friends and struggled with the noise level. Appreciate that I’m 45 and maybe not the target audience and your staff kindly moved us through to the back with some others doing the same.
    McLarens on the CornerResponded on 19 February 2024
    Hi James, Thanks so much for the feedback, we like to think we are a corner for everyone here at McLarens, and while we can appreciate the volume of the live music may be preferred more by some than others, we're always happy to find a quieter spot if that's not for you, and are glad we could do this on the night. Delighted to hear you enjoyed your visit otherwise, and look forward to welcoming you back soon!

    The only thing that takes this place from 5 to 4 stars was the fact that some toppings were missing from my old man's veggie burger. This was swiftly amended, however! Besides that, this place was brilliant - the best fish & chips I've ever had.

    Nice place but limited choice of food and overpriced for what’s on offer. Service was eventually good but to wait for 15 minutes after being seated to be approached by a server was not good. Will try again for Brunch.

    Eggs Benedict very disappointing. Sauce was cold and the sourdough was over toasted and so hard I couldn’t cut it - and certainly wasn’t going to bite it. Had to pull it into little bits and eat separately

    Lovely venue to meet up for a birthday celebration. Only slight issue we had was that food wasn’t hot but we didn’t like to complain as know it can’t be an easy thing to always make possible. Surprise brownie birthday plate for my daughter was unexpected and really lovely - she was delighted!

    Hi Ann, Thanks so much for taking the time to leave a review, we're so glad you chose to visit us for a special occasion, it really means a lot, and we're pleased as punch your daughter liked the Birthday Plate! Had we known about the temperature issue with your food we'd of been happy to replace it, you should certainly be able to expect hot food when visiting! Reach out to us at mclarens.management@signaturepubs.co.uk next time you are coming in and we'll get you a few dishes on the house to make up for it. Thanks again, Team McLarens

    We ordered the beef sharing for two but when it came out it was rare as we not asked how we would like our beef cooked. Vegetables were cold and potatoes were over cooked. Also the starter that comes with it is very strange no butter and only three dips that both of us did not like. Then for dessert to share was one plate with a scoop of ice cream and two mini tarts. Won’t be back in a hurry, bad experience. Plus a down side for me was dogs aloud in that’s a no no

    Hi Jason, We're sorry to hear that you didn't enjoy your visit, and have passed on your comments to our Kitchen Team. Our Sharing Roast for two is cooked medium-rare as standard although we are always happy to take the lead from our guests if they have a preference.

    The service was initially good but, due to being busy diminished a bit and we had to try to attract the attention of the busy staff to add to our order with the next course. The food was excellent. Although the atmosphere was lively due to the big screens showing the rugby international, we had booked to have an important family catch up not realising that the date coincided with a Rugby International in Edinburgh. The level of noise was considerable and increased to the point of not being able to converse across a table when the bagpipes were being played courtesy of the restaurant's piper.
    McLarens on the CornerResponded on 13 February 2024
    Hi Mary, thank you for taking the time to leave us this feedback. We apologise for the slower service you received on game day and for the louder sporting atmosphere that we understand is not the ideal setting for a family catch-up.. we have in recent months increased our live sports schedules to accommodate a larger range of sporting fixtures as well as the some entertainment such as the piper you experienced which we appreciate is not to everyone's preference. We hope you do choose to dine with us again and we have the chance to offer a quieter setting and more attentive service.

    Nice for a few drinks but I wouldn’t recommend the food unless for a quick bite, service was very unprofessional from a lot of the staff although you could definitely tell who senior/more experienced staff were, I think more training required for staff and standing around at the bar when there’s clear things to be done/help out those with sections on the floor. Food was nice and didn’t take too long but service was a serious let down, I’d recommend for a quick drink as the place is lovely but a meal, not so good.

    I was waiting to be seated when a couple of servers walked past me, looking my way and then ignoring me, only to see them later on (when I had already been seated) help some other customers get seated. Just to clarify, it wasn’t that they ignored me because the place was busy, and they were serving other customers. I don’t know, I found the whole experience quite bizarre. I also ordered the starter salad and that did not qualify for a salad, it was mostly some slices of beetroot and half a shallot with some goat’s cheese. I was not impressed yesterday. Such a pity because when I had visited your restaurant once before I had a nice experience. I think I will try other restaurants in the area and only book yours if everything else is booked.

    Our booking was made via OpenTable & we omitted to add within open table that we wished to take up 30% off offer in January- when it came to pay the bill the restaurant refused to honour that offer & we got to stalemate with the staff - we ended up paying bill with 30% off but the staff did not even try to negotiate to appease our disappointment- very poor customer service - sadly as the food was good.
    McLarens on the CornerResponded on 31 January 2024
    Hi Dominique, Thanks for reaching out. Our January Sale offer does require all guests to quote 'McLarensJanuarySale2024' at the point of booking to be eligible for the offer, something which is clearly advertised on all promotional materials for the offer. That being said, we are sorry to hear that you didn't feel this was dealt with in an appropriate manner, and would. like the opportunity to discuss this with you in order to put this right. Feel free to reach out to us at mclarens.management@signaturepubs.co.uk at your convenience.

    Been to this restaurant many times but yesterday the service and apparent lack of management and control was sadly lacking. Food was presented but no drinks order taken. Our food was finished before we managed to get our coffees. We won’t be back.

    As a local I don't go that often because the food menu is always the same

    Hi Fiona, Thanks for leaving a review, we do update our menus quarterly, and try to strike a balance so there is something for everyone! We also have monthly paired Wine Dinners with unique menus - you should pop along if you're looking for something different to the standard Menu!

    Wonderful evening celebrating Robert Burns. The food was divine - I enjoyed the modern twists to classic dishes. The piper was knowledgeable and enthusiastic. The wines and whiskys were perfect pairings.

    Thanks so much for the lovely review Emma, we’re so happy to hear you enjoyed yourself at our Burns Dinner! We have two more Wine Dinners lined up in February, keep your eyes peeled for more info!

    The palace is very beautiful and the environment warm. The staff is very attentive and kind, the food is unsurpassed! We were 2 of us and I am vegan, I was given a menu that reflected tradition but was plant based and I can't find the right words to describe the beautiful evening. THANK YOU

    My friend and I met for a quick catch up and bar snacks. We were pleasantly surprised at the size of the portions of the haggis fries (delicious) as well as the flat breads and dips (also delicious). We had a lovely bottle of pinot noir which was also reasonable, staff were friendly and attentive. Nice way to spend a Wednesday evening.

    The price is far too high in my opinion. Bill was not correct and had to be redone with correct lower price. £36 for an average bottle of wine which we later found on the internet for £8. McLarens with their buying power will buy it for less I suspect. Food not value for money as portions in my opinion are not generous and do not compare well with competitors at the same price. Service charges added automatically to bill with no conversion or pre agreement with customer. Also service charge was percentage of previous higher bill value not percentage of lower correct total.
    McLarens on the CornerResponded on 22 January 2024
    We're sorry to hear that you didn't find your visit to McLarens to be good value for money, we can assure you that we regularly carry out price comparisons with our local competitors as well as absorbing as much as possible from supplier price increases to ensure any costs passed on to our guests are minimal. Unfortunately we are a small business, similar to any other hospitality venue in the city, we cannot compete with supermarket pricing, as much as we would love to. If you'd like to discuss your visit further, we'd be happy to see what we can do to turn your experience around - our e-mail is mclarens.management@signaturepubs.co.uk - we hope you'll reach out.
