Great staff, terrible steaks, condescending management....
Still pondering how a grilled steak can be cooked through but not even singed on the outside!
Still producing “Bristol Stool Chart Type 7” two days later!

A great experience for a special occasion, very polite staff, well presented food and a good wine list.The little cake we received as an engagement treat was a nice touch.
Well done.

Where do I was start, can't honestly believe that both Glasgow and Edinburgh are the same restaurants. They are miles apart and I'm not just talking about the geographical distance between the two cities. Edinburgh by far is worthy of the brand name however Glasgow has a lot of catching up to do. Our table was booked for 16.00hrs, arriving at 15.55 we were asked to wait outside along with three other families as our table wasn't yet ready. I'm thankful that it wasn't raining, however there was space closed off where tables and chairs had been places yet we weren't asked to have seat with someone taking our drinks order . Our wait outside was 15mins. We were then asked inside only to stand yet another 10 mins in the doorway with the onsite teams and other dinners passing continuously , no COVID 19 rules were applied. My chosen dinner option was the tempura salt and pepper Prawns with Quid . There was no crisp crunch to the tempura batter (undercooked) however my main which was blackened cod which was well cooked followed by the chocolate bomb . Having finished our coffees I requested the bill and I queried the service charge of 12.5%. To impose this charge neither the food or service was worthy of this amount of money. Our table server said it was optional when I asked for it to be removed, our server attitude changed. There warmth had gone as did their interaction with our table no thank you or goodbye even after we left our own gratuity . A very disappointing experience

Overall excellent experience. The only thing was the service charge. I would have given this and maybe even more however one to be just added was not what I expected.

Beautiful place, fantastic service and very tasty food. It is a bit pricey and not full after 2 courses but full after a delicious dessert. Duck starter was amazing, shepherd’s pie fab and apple tart great.

Absolutely beautiful setting, I couldn’t stop staring round! The only thing that let it down for me was that I had to ask for a steak knife to cut my toasted muffin in my eggs benedict - it was a little too toasted. Other than that, can’t fault it at all, the service was excellent, regulations adhered to, and the cocktails were delicious!

Enjoyed the experience but if you stray from the special menu then the cost is expensive. When my bill arrived it had add ins that really weren’t expected - so as I say a bit over the top prices for sides etc.

Despite having made a reservation a week in advance was shown to a table right next to waiters service area, we were moved upstairs without any trouble but it still wasn’t a great table location. Food was average at best, service was OK, but overall experience was overpriced chain restaurant food. I wouldn’t recommend.
