This place does a great Sunday roast, and some lovely food. Has a great layout and atmosphere. But is a little expensive for a pub!! Roast dinner £10.00 not too bad and they always offer a great vegi option. Normal meals are price 9.00 to 14.00 and never any offers of 2 for?? And the wine, drinks are expensive!

Booked a room for a meeting here and staff were very helpful. Lunch was very good. We all (8 of us) had different things at lunch and all came together, piping hot and great quality.

The bar had a really good selection of drinks and the menu was really good with food ranging from sharing platters to burgers. I had fish and chips and a beef roast( really recommend it ). The food was defiantly worth the money. Breakfast was very tasty ! Only thing I would say is with the scrambled egg was too... More

I stayed here for three weeks in January 2017. The menu was something different from the usual pub/restaurant almost like they were trying to hard to be posh. The chickens starter are really nice but three is no where near enough. The mains were good but over complicated. And deserts were hardly that. I love deserts and sticky toffee and... More

I ordered the sea bass with new potatoes, asparagus and a Lobster and samphire sauce. I was served sea bass on pasta in a creamy sauce - not sure what the sauce consisted of, but it was ok. I didn't question the difference as I thought I may have ordered an alternative fish dish in error and didn't want to... More

You don't go to a place such as this for a fine dining experience so if you don't expect too much you won't be disappointed. Food looked and tasted as though it had been received frozen and then defrosted and cooked. Service was hit or miss depending on who you got, some not bad, others seemingly not really wanting to...

This review is based only on the breakfasts served as we were staying in the adjoining Travelodge. We had the full Scottish fry up and although it was plentiful the quality wasn't up to scratch, very greasy and not the best. The dining area was clean and the staff pleasant but as I say let down by the quality.

My wife and i stay locally so it was a bit of a change to go to Helensburgh instead of heading towards Glasgow. This place has had a makeover and used to be dingy with you sticking to the old carpet routine, but now has had a re-fit makeover and is an absolute pleasure to dine in. Food was excellent... More
