Won't be back as food was freezing. When pointed out to waitress she shrugged shoulders, and said oh really. I'm surprised at that. No replacements offered so left food and drinks and went to another place.

Right in the heart of Bathgate it offers good food and cheap drinks. Quite large inside so it offers a nice roomy feel. Service is good and food is very reasonable in price.

Brilliant food at great prices. Family friendly pub. Also a great place to have a drink in the evening. Staff are helpful and always make sure that the tables are cleared. Can't fault the place.

Ideal for meal deals at good prices for the family.Seems to be popular with men in for a drink so lots of seats at front taken up by coats and no one sitting at them?However service and food were ok and would return again.
