Another lunch we thoroughly enjoyed! We recommend the wild mushrooms sourdough toast and mussels, and will be back next week-end as long as possible! The atmosphere is cozy, the service is polite and effective, really nothing to find fault with.

Protocols re C19 were all followed, tables all well spaced and nice tasteful perspex screens(if that's possible!!!).

Food tasted 'homemade'. Starters of mushrooms and croquettes were really tasty.

My mince'n'tatties was the biz. My partner said her batter was too thick and a little 'doughy' although she said the fish itself was nice, moist and tasty.

My one criticism would be the temperature of the food (except the fish being deep fried)- it was just acceptable - was 50/50 decision about asking for the dishes to be 'zapped'.

All in all a nice lunch - special mention should be made of the lovely waitress from Murcia in Spain, she was delightful

Met with friends, main meals and desserts were great, starters were a mixed bag. Goats cheese and red pepper croquettes were over done, the crab cake was overly moist and also over cooked. The rest of the meal and the service was great so no harm done.

I have been here 3 times in just one week. My husband and I love this place, we've been for many occasions previously. The menu is slightly smaller, but food is still outstanding. Cocktail menu is limited, naturally but if you have a favourite from old one they will make it (my husband was delighted with his Wee Beastie) Overall experience is excellent every time, staff are well educated about safety measures and still extremely helpful and pleasant. I will of course be back.

I thought the food was ok..the steak and ale pie was tasty but the haggis croquettes did not even taste like haggis and the whisky sauce had no taste at all.
The cranachan was ok but I've tasted better.
And £10 for a glass of red wine is very steep.

It was OK... but could have been better. The thick cut chips were frozen thick cut, which were OK, but could have been real. The fish pie was OK... but I would have said the fish was from a freezer bag.
The cranchan was just nasty.

I love this restaurant, I've visited numerous times. The food is always fantastic. I marked it down in this instance because I was disappointed that the kids meals didn't come with vegetables and I had to pay for a side plate of seasonal veg - just doesn't seem right!! Apart from that the service was great, and the food was fantastic. We had a lovely family evening.

I went with 2 friends and took advantage of the extended 50% off deal. The food was excellent, starters were a good size and very tasty. The fish and chips main course was brilliant, freshly cooked and the best chips I've had in ages. The only complaint I had was that, whilst the fish and chips were a very generous portion, one of my friends ordered the Balmoral Chicken which came as a tiny portion - the chicken breast was minuscule and the accompanying mashed potatoes amounted to a couple of mouthfuls. It did give us a bit of a laugh and the evening was saved by ordering an extra portion of chips!
Would definitely recommend - just be careful what you order if you're hungry!
