I have been here for lunch on a few occasions and have never been disappointed. Today was no different. The lunch menu is reasonably priced and has a good range of options to choose from. The food is good if not exceptional and the service is friendly and relatively quick which can be important at lunch time. Worth a visit... More

Late lunch on a 5pm menu. Good value for money. Food was outstanding. Cullen skink to die for. Slow cooked lamb was great. A decent bottle of rioja and a pleasant smiley waitress. What's not to like??? 😊😊

Fabulous food, great atmosphere, cosy - a great night out. Staff could have been a little more relaxed but hey, I am not going to mark it down because of that! Just do it!

My friends and I visited one afternoon for lunch and we were impressed. The menu has a good choice of food, which is sourced locally or within Scotland. We all had something different from the menu and each of those items were delicious. I'd be happy to go back here and recommend it.

We visited this restaurant before attending the burns night at St Andrews in the square. The Cullen skink was good, as was the haggis dinner. Although the dish could have had some more vegetables, no cabbage in the mash or any neeps. Service was good as was my pint of Belhaven.

Thank Onkar S
