    The service last night was excellent and the woman who served us could not have been more helpful, friendly and efficient. One of our company felt her chicken was dry and overcooked however all other meals were good. Not my first visit and won’t be my last!

    Lovely food yet again, service was 10/10. Our server was excellent, very hard working, a wee gem, perfect for the hospitality industry, can not thank her enough, she really looked after us all. (i am a wee bit annoyed i cant remember her name) but special thanks to her anyway x

    Where do I start. Had seats booked outside, one of our party sat down and there was a sharp nail sticking out of a post, dress ripped. Spoke to several staff who didn’t seem to care, asked if they could get a hammer to push nail in but no hammer on premises. Dress ruined and had to make sure nothing else was ripped during our visit. Bank holiday weekend and very few staff. Booked for 230pm, drinks order taken at 245, drinks arrived at 320!! Ordered food which took ages but was really tasty so that helped. No cutlery or napkins, had to keep on asking for everything. Had thought due to the ripped clothing caused by unsafe seating there might have been a discount but no! We had hoped to stay until 7pm but left at 440.

    Excellent food and fantastic service as always. One thing I feel I need to raise is the fact staff can’t be tipped by adding extra to bill when paying by card. We didn’t have any cash so couldn’t leave a tip for the brilliant service we received. Other venues allow you to add a tip to the card payment and I believe the cash equivalent is then taken out of the till. I see regularly that you are short staffed and that in turn affects opening hours. Perhaps staff would stay if they got proper tips?

    Excellent service and food from the Forfar Giddy Goose. Very prompt service and staff occasionally asking if we needed anything else. All of our meals were very tasty and enjoyed by all. Reasonable prices. I’ve been here a number of times, have enjoyed each time and would recommend to anyone.

    Not full menu was available that night. No pizzas, no hot dogs, no garlic bread. Food was ok, nothing fancy really. I love pizzas but couldn’t have one that night. Service was good, had to ask for salt and pepper as they never even thought to ask us. Nice cocktails and mocktails.

    Been several times before. Menu changed a bit between visits but food was good and prices just at top end of value for money. Always happy to go back. The visit on Saturday was a just a disaster. Half the menu was unavailable, but things can go wrong and thee was still some choice, or so we thought. The food that was served was not what was ordered and when pointed out the manageress told us it was what we ordered and they had changed the menu so we might of thought we were getting something else. This was repeated with the deserts. and the same story was told. We were wrong but when you've been before and ordered the same thing and each time and its different I don't think I'm wrong. There will b one final change and thats a change of location. will never go back when eating in Forfar.

    The restaurant changed closing hours a few hours before my reservation that i had booked for a week, they didn't have any of the food items only the lunch menu and limited sides. I could only book a table at 4:30, so it meant I only had an hour before I had to leave. Terrible experience nowadays, never used to be this bad. The staff were rude and complaining about no one leaving, thinking no one could see or hear them at the bar.

    The food and service was amazing as always! A bit sad that there are only a select few cocktail that are 50% off on the menu as I was hoping to try a whole bunch out for my first time (i dont drink often). The forfar staff are a credit to your team :) They are always SO lovely and friendly and the chefs prepare the most amazing food. Thank you, will definitely come back again with my family.

    Have eaten here before and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. This time however we are asked to take a table in the bar. We presumed this was because we could hear a rather loud party in the other room. However that loud party quickly either left or went quiet but as we were the only ones in the bar felt a bit like Johnny No Mates. The service and food was excellent but the only other people in the bar were collecting takeaways and it all seemed a bit sad. When we went through to the toilet after we had eaten we were surprised to find quite a few empty tables and are still unsure why were were put in the bar when we had booked quite a few days in advance. As I said food and service good but spoiled by eating in the bar when there appeared to be tables free in the main restaurant.

    Service was excellent, the waitresses were never far and checked in frequently without pestering you. The food came out very quickly and was delicious. Even though the place was busy it was still possible to have a conversation without having to shout over the rest of the room. All in all a great experience!

    Food was flavoursome, hot & tasty. Food presentation pleasant. Service warm, friendly & inviting. Booked in with 2 friends for your breakfast menu commencing that day. Received prompt confirmation of booking & further text that booking moved forward by 15mins. Unfortunately, despite being first to order & each order taken at same time, my friends had been served & eaten their breakfast & I had my beverage only. I asked if my breakfast was ready, as my friends had now finished their meals. To my surprise, I was asked if I'd ordered something to eat. I confirmed I had. The waitress didn't know what I had ordered, so I gave the waitress the order again, as it was certain they had forgotten about my order. When I gave my order to the waitress, they were polite but omitted an apology, perhaps due to discomfort or embarrassment. I felt uncomfortable eating on my own, as the purpose in socialising or going out with friends, is to eat together. Thankfully my friends, seeing my discomfort, then ordered something else to share, so we were able to share the experience & enjoy a meal together.

    Noise level was only loud due to me and my friends . No other issues to complain about that couldn’t and won’t be solved till n a less busy night if the week - for instance it was a little cramped at the table with 7 people but that was my fault due to being a soft boy .
