Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Lunch visit today. Awful time getting there because of the weather but the lunch more than made up for it. Slow cooked beef was fantastic, the meat just fell apart and was so lovely. Sides included instead of the rip of merchants who charge extra...for everything. The cauli cheese was fantastic. Amuse bouche before the meal, home made petit fours after. Friend's salmon was great and the pineapple roulade afterwards was delicious. Friendly & efficient service. All this for £37 for two of us. Great place, so much better than the pub grub merchants.More

Wonderful meal and great service for Burns Night. Attentive but not over-bearing staff. Menu was appropriately themed and cooked to perfection.

We went to McKees for their plant based theme night. The food was delicious and was a great introduction to plant based eating. My husband, a committed carnivore thoroughly enjoyed the dishes we tried and although he is back go his meat eating ways, he...is more than happy to experiment further. Thank you McKees for a lovely eveningMore

A really lovely evening enjoying the Plant based taster menu. It was excellent value and the food was delicious. McKee's has a relaxed, friendly and welcoming atmosphere, and we are looking forward to returning.

Enjoyed our family meal out here before Christmas. The food really suits us, it’s special (better than you’d cook at home for sure!) but without being too fancy. Good value too, 3 courses for £31.

We visited for the first time in a party of 10 for the Christmas menu. There were several, bigger parties in but we were well looked after and enjoyed great food and service from the friendly staff. We will definitely return in the New Year.

Previously given a 5 Star review but sadly very disappointing on this occasion. Previously the food was outstanding but this time none of our meals were memorable and 4 of them bordered on inedible. A great shame.More

This was the first time I have eaten at this restaurant. I decided to try the gourmet evening which was excellent. Dimos who was our server was excellent throughout the whole time I was dining in the restaurant. The Gourmet evening was made up of...6 courses of which the chocolate bomb was my favourite. I would recommend to anyone to try this restaurant out as the whole evening was fantastic. I will be looking forward to the next time I dine here.More
