“Looks good outside - but opening hours seem erratic!”
Reviewed 11 August 2013

Went in here August 9th at about 7.30 pm looking for a meal. Was told meals finished at 6 pm. (Surely a time when most folks are thinking about an evening meal!).

Have tried several times on different days/hours etc. but despite advertising meals outside (and the outside looks very inviting), have been told that meals not available. Would like to know what the opening hours are!

Anyway, Jolly Beggars loss and Thistle's gain. Discovered that the former chef at the Thistle has returned and is making a difference. First time we had experienced a meal there - see my review of the Thistle.

It would be interesting to know which day and at what time, the reviewers who have given this pub a good review, dined here.

“Fab wee place!!”
Reviewed 13 July 2013

We like to drop in here now and then when passing through and there is always good banter and a friendly face. Would prefer fresher veg with meals suppose, but we paid £8.50 for 2 courses and thought it was a great deal. Yummy apple pie!!
It always looks clean, inviting and loved. This place is made by the people there and for us is a wee gem. X

“Noisey Bar”
Reviewed 6 March 2013

Popped in the bar on a Saturday night which was noisey and crowded. A good singer was trying to sing a jazz song but was being drowned out by the boozy clientele. The drinks are expensive for a 'run of the Mill pub'. Has pleasant patio at back of pub.
