Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Excellent lounge bar which apart from having some unusual beers/Cider also offers an excellent food menu. The food is really good, and both the Steak pie and haddock are highly recommended.

I had lunch here and was very impressed. with the quality of the food, the attentive friendly staff and the promptness of the service. Had the seafood linguine which was excellent along with a glass of pleasant pinot grigio. Staff were very attentive and service...was prompt and staff pleasant. I wasn't driving but there is a nice spacious car park outside. Prices very reasonable. RecommendedMore

I had sweet and sour chicken but it was inedible as the chicken was undercooked. OH had steak pie and said the pastry was brick hard. Veg was good, drinks were cold, service was first class

We really want to thank you for all your effort...& will be ordering again but, would prefer to see you both soon in your restaurant. 🤞🤞 Hopefully that will be soon. Thank you 😋😋More

Super cute place with great food and even better service. Cat recommended the beef stroganoff and we were not disappointed. If you’re hungry near Brechin, we highly recommend this cozy joint.

Popped in here on our way to Edinburgh on Friday, the staff were very friendly and accommodated us with the last available table. To be honest it doesn't look much from the outside (nor the inside really) but the food was excellent, we both had...Burger with chilli which was very filling and very good value. The staff were very friendly and the food arrived quite quickly, would definitely recommend.More

Food and service were first class. Young staff were pleasant and helpful and genuinely seemed happy at their work! The food we had was faultless. My friend had the steak pie and it was a REAL home made pie - none of the meat and...gravy with a separate puff pastry lid that so many places do nowadays! First complaint? Too much!! I had the chicken stroganoff with half rice/half chips. It was beautiful and I scoffed the lot! Yum. Second complaint? No room for pud!! We will definitely recommend to others and will return!More
