My sisters and I enjoyed our meals immensely. We asked around town for recommendations and were directed to Ynot. I would gladly go back again.

Chilled. Great staff. Food really good and a cosy place to waste a cold scottish winter evening. The burgers are really good and there is a decent range of ales.

Had dinner in the evening here and was pleasantly surprised by the food and drink. Staff were good and the food was probably priced about right. Not cheap, but it’s worth it.

Hello chmac, Firstly, thanks for taking the time to leave us a review. We are disappointed to read that you were not satisfied with our Vegetarian Brunch as it did not contain vegetarian haggis. However that said, we are a little confused as our menu...More

Hey there, the restaurant itself does not allow dogs, although we have a small bar connected to the restaurant which does. You can eat off the restaurant menu in here. Hope this helps!
