“Great food, good value”
Reviewed 17 December 2013

Cullen skink was excellent (although potatoes were just under we were there early evening), the blade of beef melted in the mouth, but fondant potato was underseasoned for my taste. Vegetables cooked perfectly.the tipsy laird was heaven. Serving staff were very pleasant and attentive. The bill, £90 for 4 I thought was very reasonable for the quality of cooking. Ambiance laid back, friendly. Well done, I certainly will return.

“At the risk of being a Restaurant Bore!”
Reviewed 1 December 2013

Lunched in No 1 recently which is one of my favourite restaurants-why?
Well firstly and most importantly the food is pretty good-it's not a Celebrity Chef restaurant but it's good value for money and, so far, I've never had a bad meal.
Secondly, and perhaps more importantly it has attitude! Many restaurants produce good food in pretty boring surroundings-not No1! It has a great laid back bar and a restaurant with character but probably most importantly it has great staff who genuinely seem to want to make sure that their customers enjoy the experience of lunching or dining.

“Slightly disappointing...”
Reviewed 22 November 2013

We took two friends for dinner here as we wanted to try somewhere different. I had been in for drinks before and thought the bar had a great atmosphere so really wanted to return for food. I was disappointed though as I thought the meal was below standard!

I had ravioli which was undercooked and almost cold. The others had the homemade beef burgers which were apparently alright, but nothing mind-blowing. Highlight was the sticky toffee pudding for dessert!

I would return here because I really wanted it to be good, I hope if I give them a second try they’ll prove me wrong. Maybe a busy Saturday night was the reason for the disappointment, the focus seemed to be more on the bar and less on the grill.

Thank you for your recent review on trip advisor, I'm disappointed to hear you found your experience slightly disappointing, we always aim to give everyone a enjoyable experience no matter if it is for a drink or the full dinning experience.
With regards to your comments on the food the burgers especially are one of our biggest sellers and are homemade daily to ensure the very best quality.
I hope we will have the pleasure of welcoming you back in the future and making sure your expectations are exceeded.

Kind regards
Helen
