    We arrived early by about 15 mins but were seated straight away. We didn't have to wait long before the waiter took our drinks order and then our choice of food. Food was really amazing. Piping hot and so tasty. Nice portions too. Thoroughly recommend Whiski Rooms to anyone who has not visited before.

    Fantastic from start to finish. Staff were lovely, attentive and welcoming. Food was to a high standard - all delicious. Tried two whisky flights, great variety to choose from. Only thing would have changed was the apple crumble - was delicious but it would more accurately be called stewed apples with a sprinkle of crumble on top. Needs a layer of crumble on top be considered an apple crumble. Will definitely be going back!

    We had a very pleasant meal, very well served and presented. One star lost for chips not being very crispy and could have been hotter. Not enough to spoil the meal at all but just not quite the best. Also Cranachan didn't seem to have much if any oatmeal - again very nice flavour but missing that little crunch expected from that dish. Would still recommend overall.

    Group booking of 4 people, nice table and atmosphere in the restaurant. Waiter and waitress warmed up to the group at the end of our meal. Sadly 2 out of 4 of us did not enjoy the chef special of Lamb, which was disappointing . We also felt the service was rushed, after completing our starter and main course within 1 hour of arriving at our table.

    Overall we enjoyed our News Year's Eve dinner/celebration at Whiski Rooms. Service was outstanding. The food was just OK for the price we paid - we were very disappointed in the lamb entree as we expected an actual lamb shank, not chopped up meat formed into a mound. Rooms/seating/atmosphere was nice, although there was a very bright light setup outside for the street party that was shining through the window directly into our faces which was quite annoying & they couldn't do anything to block it.

    Nice ambient restaurant although food average and overpriced. Fish and chips were basically two small fish goujons. Wife was also disappointed with the chicken, lacked flavour and taste. Service not particularly attentive. Sharing bread to start and deserts were good.

    We've visited several times as its one of our favourite places to come for a nice meal, however found on this occasion it was still nice, but not as good as it normally is. We felt that the portion sizes had been reduced and the sticky toffee pudding was hard on the bottom. Still a very nice meal and well presented, but not as good as previous visits.

    The steak pie was very rich and after a few bites I felt sick. The pastry was freezing cold and the chunky chips has big lumps through them. They also went really cold quickly. When the waitress came and could see we had both eaten less than half our food she just ignored us, picked up our plates and walked away. She then came back sat down the bill and didn't speak. When my husband told her about the poor food she was snappy and claimed no other customer had a problem woth the food. Will never be back. The whole place also stinks of fish.
