Drinks orders were taken and we waited....... eventually... More

I passed through Kirkcaldy at lunchtime and decided to stop and eat. There were not many places open and i ended up going in here as it was really the only place - i hadn't even looked at the menu when i went in and hadn't expected anything special.

Visited the Dining room as a family of five on a Saturday afternoon. The restaurant wasn't busy and we were shown to the table straight away. The staff was lovely and polite. The menu wasn't overly extensive but there was enough for everyone's taste.We didn't have to wait long for the food either. The food was very well presented and... More
