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.

Our plane was delayed for several hours, and we were looking forward to eating here to pass the time. From a first glance, this restaurant looked cosy and welcoming. However, we were rudely welcomed by a non-Scottish woman, saying we could not sit in a...certain part of the bar / restaurant. She said the area was closed, despite there still being other people sat on other tables in that area. There were no signs to say the area was closed. We could walk through and chairs were apparently placed in front of the area to "show" the area was closed. However, this was not clear, as we could still access that area with our suitcases going through / no obvious obstructions. The QR codes would not scan on the table, when we moved to another "open" area of the bar / restaurant to another table. And it was not clear whether food was still being served at this time, the time being only 5pm-6pm / dinner time? It was an awful experience, so we had no choice but to go to a different airport restaurant instead, which was so much more inviting and welcoming. And this restaurant's food was great with little waiting times, (nearly directly opposite this restaurant). This much more pleasant restaurant was Bocco. Highly recommend going to Bocco instead to avoid disappointment! I hate leaving negative reviews but unfortunately this is the case with this restaurant and would not want other passengers to have the same negative experience, especially after delayed flights!More

My flight was delayed and had no option but to sit in the airport bar. The white wine was very pleasant, and I had some prawns as well. The staff are very nice and efficient.

Served luke warm and dry steak and ale pie which cost almost 30 quid with a side and was told would need to pay extra for some more gravy to warm it up and make it less dry…. Won’t be returning here!

Hi, To be sincere considering is a pub in the gate airport area, the food are servicing is good. They offer good beer too, as it pretty common find in all Scotland but the game changer in this place is when Orsi is in shift....A positive and smily person. She make you smile, even if you had a s*** day, with a rapid and professional service at the table. Thank you a lotMore

Been just sitting for a drink before the flight. My only expectation was to sit and relax, but Orsi who came to the table to take the order took it to a completely different dimension and made my day! I truly hope all people working...in hospitality have the same energy and level of customer engagement as Orsi. Keep up the good work!More

5 out 5 for Orsi. Amazing attention to detail. She literally has photographic memory. Will definitely go again. P.S. Surely Orsi is destined for bigger things. I hope whoever is reading this review takes note.

Could barely understand the barmaid. Said I could have fries OR salad with the fish. She couldn't understand what ham, egg and chips was from their own menu. When it arrived, the fish was half cooked and the skin on chips were like leather. My...£3 round of bread was hard on one side. I sent it back but waitress gave no refund. Left most of meal. My wife's ham was similarly bad, the ham being made from the seemingly abundant leather. Don't waste your money like we did. Awful!More
