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.

I like this pub as the staff are super nice. Got a cheeseburger today and the smallest bit of lettuce was used in the bun which was pointless putting it on the roll, as I couldn't taste it. The burger relish was scraped on which didn't cover the base of the bun so couldn't taste that at all either. The burger was ok but would have been super better if it had come the way the menu indicated. Also, I asked for no onion please on the burger and it came with extra onion. Makes no sense. My friends lasagna arrived luke warm but she didn't want to send it back so as not to cause a fuss. The rest of the food was ok though.

This, I discovered, is technically my new local (in terms of nearest to where I now live.) I thought I'd give it a try as they were advertising Sky Sports (there was a premier league match on that night) and also pints of Fosters Lager on sale on a Monday, Tuesday or Wednesday at the very reasonable price of £3.00 each, all day. There was also an interesting menu available so I decided to try something I had personally not had before, namely Balmoral Chicken, served with smoked streaky Bacon, Haggis and a creamy pepper sauce with the obligatory Chips and Garden Peas on the side (all for £9.99). My meal did not take too long to arrive, it was piping hot and very well presented. I tucked in and discovered how good my perception had been to select this dish, it was delicious and was soon finished. All in all it was a fantastic experience and I look forward to many more visits, sampling some of the other dishes on the menu. Top class & highly recommended.

Starters arrived ok, then 1hour and 15 minutes wait for main course and the food could have been better. 1 meal was not completed to one of our groups liking it was removed from the bill thankfully. Having eaten here many times for great food and a warm welcome it was hoped the new owners would carry on but alas no chance and then the music started at 7pm o dear! I know they mean well but it was a good pub for food but now enough said.

Waited ages to be greeted at table, given wrong menu. Placed under a speaker blasting out head banging music. Was really loud and not suitable. Meal arrived eventually. So disappointing. Steak pie was a pukka microwaved pie, served with a side of granual gravy!! Gammon was burnt by being cooked on a dirty plancha or pan, peas were stone cold. Pizza was a frozen microwaved pizza. Mixed fish platter was disgusting, all tasted of oil that needed cleaned Asked for a desert menu, finally got them, only to be forgotten about by waitress. Gave up, left!! Bad service, bad food, bad choice for lunch!!

Been a couple of times and though service was usually slow the food and prices in general were good. However on our recent visit the service was terrible together with many of the items on the menu being unavailable. Only two other tables seated on the day but waited nearly an hour for our food. This also came in dribs and drabs with the kids being served about 15 mins before the adults. This also appeared to be happening at the other tables.. Little assistance or apology from the solitary waitress who seemed a little overwhelmed by it all. All our drinks were consumed before the food with no offer of a top up to compensate for the delay. Sorry but won't be back

Used to come here at least once a week for food a couple of years ago and got engaged here. Haven't been since we moved away but wife wanted to go today for her birthday. 4 of us in the group and we were the only people in for food so thought we'd get a good meal. How wrong I was! Wife's hunter's chicken looked awful and was told and she asked the waitress could she get a warm one please. I tried my gammon and it was cold too. Thought I'd say to the waitress when she came out of the kitchen. To my surprise she walked out with my wife's original meal and said that should be warm now. As the waitress had only been away for a minute it was clear it had been heated in the microwave and not a fresh meal. Had to send that back as if we'd wanted a microwave meal we could've had that at home and not pay bar food prices. Part of my mother in laws dinner was cold and our daughter ordered the battered chunky chicken bites but was given Southern fried chicken houjons which she can't eat. No wonder the place always seems to be empty now if that's what the food is like when it's not busy and the chef only has to get 4 mains correct. Would never have had this problem when the last owner had it. Would've given the review 0 stars if it was an option. Wasted afternoon and birthday ruined for my wife.

We booked for a family meal on Christmas Eve due to the excellent reviews. I had initially avoided it for a while after they cancelled our table on Father’s Day at very short notice. Sadly, we had quite a number of issues. The main being that we had quite a considerable wait for our food. When we questioned a member of staff (who turned out to be the manager) she went to check and came back to say 10 more minutes because the kitchen was so busy due to a table of 12 being served. The wait was longer than 10 mins. Additional drinks we ordered did not arrive. When the food arrived, the children’s portion itself was good sized - 2 decent sides but only 9 pieces of penne pasta which was the main part my son would eat. We only ordered the sides as it was part of the meal deal. When we questioned the size, the Manager appeared unhappy but did take it away and added a small amount more. One of our meals was wrong but we took it to avoid further delay. The chips we had ordered to go with a main meal arrived after the main was finished. The food itself was actually very nice. When the children’s ice lolly’s were served, 1 had clearly melted and had been refrozen. Again this was replaced but we were made to feel wrong for raising it. The manager did take the wrong meal off the bill which was appreciated but how our concerns were handled was not satisfactory. I’ve worked in the hospitality industry and have a lot of patience when staff are busy (especially at Christmas) and of course mistakes can be made. The issue here was being made to feel like we were wrong for raising the concerns and then how it was handled following this. My husband left a review on their social media page after not getting very far resolving the issues at the pub. The owner of the pub has responded to this in a very unprofessional manner by repeatedly sharing the post on social media and making incorrect comments about the situation when he was not even present. We appeared to have come to a resolution, however the owner has again reposted our review today on Christmas Day with more factually incorrect information. We are disappointed that we had to experience the difficulties on what should have been a happy family Christmas meal out and then had to deal with the upset of a pub owner’s poor conduct on social media. As a pub owner, they should be able to take the bad comments with the good and not see a need to personally attack their customers to cover the errors. Perhaps if there was enough staff to cover the number of tables booked in, there would not have been an issue. I usually cringe at the thought of complaining/giving a bad review having been in their shoes but would hate another family to be treated as we have by this establishment.

Christmas Day lunch…well what can I say, absolutely horrendous! Starter salad of goats cheese, tiny sprinkle of goats cheese and drowned in vinegar. Main of turkey, was stone cold,veg solid,hard frozen potatoes. Gravy like water, pile of red cabbage leaking all over the plate. Cheesecake was edible. Tbh we weren’t really expecting anything fancy as the price was so low but should of at least been a hot roast dinner. The staff were lovely and the atmosphere was good, this place is so handy for us but this meal was bad. Would happily pay more to be served better quality next year.

Absolute waste of time. No menus, no cutlery, 2nd visit in 4 weeks with family and what a disappointment. Had to find menus online as waitress said they had nine, ordered atvtbe bar, 10 mins later told that Mac and Cheese was sold out, asked what vegetarian alternatives were available and told we have a big book of allergens if you want a look!!!. Ordered grlic mushrooms instead, guess what....sold out. Paid for drinks and left, won't be back, Family of 5 on this occasion. Waste of a Sunday evening

This is a terrific local with a very welcoming landlord who creates a very welcoming atmosphere. Good food & draft beer selection, and friendly service that leads to loyal customers. The pub isn't in the most central location but it's worth making time to visit - Dunfermline needs more like this.

Me and the hubby called in for a few festive sips, and we're very glad we did. Rebecca and Niamh (apologies if I've used the wrong spelling!) are just lovely- so welcoming and friendly. The venue itself is smart, a really fresh and spacious area. Good choice of beers, and what looks to be a fine selection of everything else! We will definitely be returning to support this great addition to our neighbourhood. x.

Could not fault this establishment. As a regular who goes in quite often. The food is always top notch. Vegetarian options are available and if your chosen option has run out staff are able to facilate something similar and have done in the past. The staff are very competent and friendly (nicest staff I've encountered in a pub). A comfortable establishment that is dog friendly so lots of wonderful little furry faces to welcome you. And they all know how to pour a pint.
