3rd time we've been for food at the Livingston Inn in a matter of weeks. No booking made as we thought it wouldn't be too busy on a Monday. We were wrong!! Thankfully the staff were able to accommodate us (2 adults, toddler and baby) Food was excellent again. Had a little issue with the kids meal which was immediately... More

2nd time we have all met at Livingston inn for a catch up since we were all made redundant in October 2016. This time around we didn't book a table but just wanted to sit and chat... all 10 of us. Staff were very accommodating even although they were busy with other diners. They managed to fit us in at... More

We visited Sunday lunchtime with our two dogs and were made very welcome by the staff and locals. The dogs were brought a bowl of water on arrival! We ate in the bar (dogs not allowed in lounge as expected) but had good service and very good food, cooked to perfection. Good choice selection, something to suit everyone at a... More

No real ale, poor show, had they bought in decent real ale rather than very odd ales that were stocked in the past then they might have sold. Other than that I like the bar but have heard that they had no red wine earlier in the month either, that is ridiculous.

Many Thanks for taking the time to review The Livingston Inn After months of selling real ale, we decided to remove this product as it wasn't a good seller, we thought that allot of people would like real ale but that wasn't the case. Kind Regards Livingston Inn More

Enough said, this should be well avoided, some pretensions on being a local bar/wine bar. No wine is a disgrace!

Many Thanks for taking the time to review The Livingston Inn. We do not advertise The Livingston Inn as a wine bar, we do have a few wines by the glass & bottle that sell very well.. Please note we haven't ran out of wine since we refurbed/re-opened The Livingston Inn in May 2016. Kind Regards Livingston Inn More

This place is lovely, didn't realise it was there until a friend recommended it. The food is really nice and very reasonable on prices. It is clean and tidy and staff very nice. Have been a few times now and it never disappoints.

I have to buck the trend and say I did not enjoy my meal. Sausage and Mash, the menu did say it came with onion chutney and I don't that if it was that, but something made the meal taste dreadfully sweet. Also the mash was a bit unremarkable. Sorry but it has put me off returning.
