                            Would give 0 if I could. Got booking confirmation for 2pm on Sunday only to be told they weren’t open until 3pm and and that they hadn’t taken any bookings! Wouldn’t recommend booking here through this ap as it seems this has happened to others.

                            I had the steak pie, and the portion turned out to be more generous than it at first looked. It was served with slightly overcooked, to my taste, broccoli and carrots. That said, it perfectly matched the description of traditional Scottish fare. This would certainly be in the realm of comfort food, being tasty and enjoyable. The staff were friendly and efficient. The beer was good. I get the feeling that the venue will be happier to return to its role as a cocktail bar that serves food once the Covid-19 crisis is done with, but it is worth eating there now anyway.

                            We arrived a little later than we had booked our table due to dinner going over! They were very accommodating and took drinks orders quick. Staff were lovely and friendly the only complaint I have is that last orders were at 10:30pm as it closed at 11:00pm but they turned the lights on and started to clean away tables etc and sweep the floor around us so we kind of felt we had to leave before 11:00pm which we did. Just felt the cleaning could have maybe been left like 10/15mins. Just felt like we needed to leave

                            Bruschetta was soggy. Salad was old (water retention). Haggis bon bons were very dry. The burger buns also soggy. Caijun chicken burger was tasteless just thrown in the bun. Only food that was decent the chips.

                            Excellent service from start to finish. Very relaxed, yet with safety paramount with name and number checks clarified swiftly at the door. Food was impressive, delivered in good time and with a smile. Staff always on hand to assist. I'd recommend R&B without hesitation.

                            Decor looked like a Gothic Indian restaurant , flock wallpaper and black and purple velour seats, probably looks great at night , but a lunch visit looked a bit odd. Staff were very friendly and welcoming and obviously well trained on Covid regulations. I was impressed to the see the staff wash their hands every time they went into the kitchen to pick up a meal to serve. We wanted a light lunch and website advertises sandwiches/ pannini's etc, but the menu we were given was the main house menu and basically everything with chips. Waitress advised us of soup of the day , but the main board stating the soup was a different flavour. We ordered scampi and breaded chicken. When it arrived it was so deep fried and overcooked it was a struggle to cut it open, and was absolutely tasteless, chips were thin , weedy french fries again many over cooked. Disappointed, the one thing that saved was the great coffee , loved the design on the top and the friendly and attentive staff. It was our first time of going and I won't rush back so much nicer places with a better daytime feel than here

                            My boyfriend and I ate here the other night and I definitely won’t be returning. The waiter didn’t know the menu and then our starter arrived 5 minutes before our drinks. I had fish and chips, the fish was really nice however the peas were cold and shrivelled, my boyfriend ordered a steak medium rare which was over cooked. They took ages to clear our table, the staff were all standing behind the bar chatting instead, when they eventually cleared us they were very blunt and didn’t even ask us if everything was okay.
