    Very good food, Scottish food done well, good value for money and good service. The only drawback was the music which could have been less loud. We didn't exactly have to shout at each other, but we did have to speak more loudly than was comfortable. We're there to eat good food and talk to one another, not to listen to music. The selection of draught beers was also quite disappointing. The food is good Scottish, why not the beers?

    The lady was helpful on the phone as we had to change our timing due to travel plans. Brought my dad here visiting Scotland and he likes Scottish cuisine. The food was amazing, freshly cooked and extremely tasty! We were so impressed and will totally recommend It to anyone who visits. We only noticed two people working on the floor rushing around left right and centre. We were so impressed by how hard working they were and would really like to give these two a well done! We know you were busy with two big tables but from what we saw you smashed it completely. Hats off to the chef as well, phenomenal!

    We had the lunch menu, excellent value for money and plenty of choice. The red pepper & goat’s cheese croquettes, haggis pakora, steak & sausage pie (generous meat filling!) and crofter’s pie were all delicious. Very well-stocked bar. The cocktail menu is really interesting, particularly all the whisky ones. Our server looked after us very well too. Will definitely return, thank you.

    Arrived at 4pm on a Saturday afternoon, had a quick drink before being seated, service was excellent and not rushed. I had the 3 course lunch time menu and my wife had a two course off the same menu. The food quality and taste across all courses was great 5* and the bill was pretty fair…we shall return.

    Had a really lovey lunch with two friends to celebrate the January birthdays. We all thoroughly enjoyed the amazing food. I had the steak pie , which was delicious. My two friends had the fish and chips , which they said was fresh and really tasty. The desserts were amazing too ,cheesecake and apple pie. The service was excellent and all the staff were very attentive and friendly. The only minor thing was the music. It was maybe a little loud for us ( we’re not that young ) , but we could still talk across the table where in some places it’s so loud that you can’t. The toilets were spotless. It is a really lovely cosy restaurant. We will all definitely be back soon.

    First time here and definately not the last! Service was excellent, our waitress made the effort to make the experience a very enjoyable one. Our Fish &Chips was superb and left just enough room for some gorgeous puddings too. The layout is very good and this is a lovely Restaurant. Thank you for making a lunch a most enjoyable experience.

    Went here for my best friends birthday with my 10 month old baby boy. The restaurant is beautiful, the staff were so, so nice and were great with my little boy! Nothing was even a tiny bit of a hassle and food was delicious! It’s not as far into merchant city as you might think right across from merchant square. Would definitely go back!
