“Not nearly good enough...”
Reviewed 5 February 2014

A treat from our daughter and hubby last Friday, not impressed at all. Didn't want to make too much fuss as did not want to upset our family but, really - not good enough. Chicken breast in the only two meals containing chicken was atrocious, dried up leathery and stringy all at the same time. Sent mine back and it was graciously replaced but, to be honest, the replacement was pale, tough and bland - what a waste! Hubbie didht send his back- he said nothing to us at the time but, waited until our daughter had left, again not to ruin our family evening out. Won't be back, there are better eateries in Kirky. Staff are courteous, hard working and attentive but, need to employ a chef with skill and a little love for the job!

“Skip the Scottish breakfast”
Reviewed 24 January 2014

The worst Scottish breakfast I have had in my entire life. Award winning Lorne sausage?????? What was the award for - the most disgusting concoction ever put together? Black pudding hard, dry and completely tasteless. Bacon cold and greasy.

In future we will give the breakfast a miss.

I have been here many times and it represents great value for money. The food is simple, but so is the price and drinks are much cheaper then the average bar. Can recommend if you are Looking for plain cooking and value for money.

“Completely mismanaged”
Reviewed 18 November 2013 via mobile

Been here several times as working in Kirkey. Can honestly say I have NEVER been served within 5 minutes. Appears to be different staff and management every day.
Been charged 3 different prices for a g and t?!
Nothing is cleaned away. Sat here now for over an hour with a coffee cup and plate on my table.
Worst Wetherspoons ever visited.
