We went to the Kirky Puffer as its a good price and reasonable food. Our mains took 10 minutes to arrive which is fine but then we ordered desserts - these failed to arrive and we chased them up after 22 minutes. They eventually came and they were on the cold side, like the had been sitting a while. The manager (i presume he was the manager) was not good. Actually very rude when bringing the desserts to us. He came back to our table afterwards with the final dessert and his approach was better then but he needs to control his moods and not take problems out on his customers. I'll be back to the Puffer but not in a hurry.

Popped in here today - 20th April 2014 for Sunday lunch. The actual pub is ok inside and the staff were pleasant BUT the food was vile. Everything on the plate was tasteless and cheap. !!! Frozen carrots, peas and roast potatoes. Tasteless and rather tough roast beef and cold gravy. We couldn't be bothered complaining again as our food had already been returned to the kitchen to be reheated. Such a letdown.

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!

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.
