We went as a party of 6 to celebrate my mums birthday. Everyone enjoyed their meal and the service was very attentive.

Food was very tasty, excellent service, plenty choice. Wasn't a fan of the plastic straw in the Pepsi unfortunately. The January discount was a very pleasant surprise. Would definitely go back.

After the pandemic hitting your industry so hard you would expect people coming back out for years is exactly what you want. However your “head” chief couldn’t be bothered making a meal so we didn’t get a table at your restaurant which was nearly empty...at the time 5;00pm on Sunday.More

We were looked after well from the moment we walked through the door. Our dining area was more than what we expected in that we had a booth which made our Christmas Eve dining much more intimate. Service was very good and attentive. The food...was amazing and well presented. Would have given an overall rating of excellent if the bill was clearer and less confusing. We're not that keen on having a service charge put on our bill as there is nothing denoting that the tips go to the staff. Would recommend and will be back.More

Lovely atmosphere, nice family lunch. The booths were nice and private although still felt like you were part of the restaurant. Highly recommended. Chefs are excellent.

Service was very slow - took 3 hours for 2 courses - with first course not coming for 90mins. Most meals were ok but burger wasn’t completely cooked and chicken burger was tasteless and bit burnt. Veggi haggis was nice as was the steak and...fish. Atmosphere was good and staff are friendly.More

I booked for our family Xmas Eve meal because Forgans always looks very festive, but TBH was a bit concerned as the service on our last visit wasn’t great and recent reviews reflect that. I shouldn’t have worried as service was spot on - drinks...order was taken and delivered promptly, and our food order taken when we were ready. We didn’t feel rushed, and our mains (haggis, fish & chips, cheeseburger) were all excellent. Desserts - cheesecake, chocolate mousse, fruit tart - also all delicious. The waiting staff were friendly and efficient, and clearly had received some training. Well done Forgans on raising your game.More

We went for a Boxing Day family meal. The food was delicious, they have a good wine selection, atmosphere was great, service was a little slow but you’d expect that at this time of year.
