Food is good, good portion size. My favourite has to be the gammon steak! Staff are always friendly and helpful! I would recommend eating here to anyone!

Visited on a busy lunch sitting. Serving staff are all excellent, really friendly and approachable. Drink orders taken straight away. The menu is well stocked with something for everyone. The signature dish of cod and chips is rightly popular. The desserts are all home made 'by mum' and it shows. Really good and tasty. Finished with a very hot capu. Price for table for 4 with drinks, two course each and 3 coffees a tad under £70 which is very decent. Only reason I held back on an excellent is the chips which I felt were a little uninspiring and could be better to match the rest of the quality. But that's a personal things as a restaurant I frequent near where I live makes the best chips, ever! So I hold high standards.

Popped in to stock up prior to a night out and this place did the trick...good sized portions and very very tasty.
Had to go back to the hotel for a lie down

Great homemade Scottish/British food.... enough said.

The atmosphere wont suit all tastes but on a cold winters day it was great

Best thing on the menu bar none and a must have was the Haggis Cheese Melt. We will be back just for the that!!
