“Great Fresh food!”
Reviewed 9 May 2014 via mobile

I have visited quite hesitantly because if previous reviews. Myself and my partner had main courses, a sweet and drinks.
The food was fresh, prepared to a good standard and reasonably priced. I had risotto and my partner steak pie, both were freshly made and delicious. Service was good. Atmosphere a bit dull. No background music and the decor is a bit shabby and cold colours used. I would reccomend to go along and eat.

“Probably the worse lunch experience”
Reviewed 18 April 2014 via mobile

Oh man,

Visited for lunch with parents and baby daughter. Would never go back only wish I could rewind and erase the whole experience. All I can do is hope my review warns others to avoid at all costs. We were seated at a table with dirty dishes. Waitress cleared away quick enough then we waited for 10-15 minutes to order drinks. Ordered st mungo from the menu only to be advised they no longer serve it (well take it off the menu then) Manager took our order then a waitress came with our order. By that time we had moved to another table away from the constantly banging front door. Orders were nachos, cheese burger and chips and sandwiches. Teas and a pint of oranjeeboom. Waitress suggested for an extra quid you can have soup and chips with your sandwich (whit? What a poorly thought out dish! Soup and fries with the sandwich - just weird). My mums burger was possibly the worse offering I ever seen. Burger patty was actually huge. Looked like a frozen job (although the manager assured it was freshly prepared that day - aye right!). So greasy, soaked the bun. Was inesible. Mum left and I asked it to be taken away. My nachos had firey bottled salsa, was minging, no guacamole and some grated cheddar and sour cream. Very poor standard. Dads sandwich was ok he said and the teas were ok. I spoke with a waitress who panicked when she realised I wasn't happy. She called the manager over and it became a bit if a scene. The manager wasn't really listening to me. I was trying to explain that my mums lunch experience was poor and all she was saying was they weren't expecting it to be that busy and they were expecting a busy night (bank holiday weekend and they weren't expecting it to be busy is just amateur management). Burger was taken off the bill. My dad paid, I would have given them hee haw. Seriously avoid this place at all costs it was like my worse nightmare. Partner took baby into disabled toilet for a change. No light. Can it get any worse? Ps not all bad, spectacular view of the Clyde

“Restaurant with a view to die for!”
Reviewed 23 March 2014

This is very much a seasonal restaurant positioned on the tourist trail for visitors who like a trip along the Firth of Clyde. It's for this reason you will find it to be quiet if out of season.
The restaurant has a panoramic window which looks straight out on to the Clyde & gives a view to die for; find a table next to the window & you could enjoy your meal whilst giving your eyes a treat.

“Birthday lunch”
Reviewed 17 February 2014

Went here for my daughters 30th birthday lunch. There were around 25 of us including quite a few children. Could not fault the staff or the food. Great price too. The children being children were running around quite a bit and I apologised for this and was told not to worry as it wasn't busy so nobody bothered which was great! I would definitely go back here!

“worst restaurant if ever eatan in!”
Reviewed 9 February 2014

When enquiring about a table for an evening meal, I was informed it would be best to book a table. When we arrived the place was empty this should have been an omen. The place was cold, the food was average, not enough staff on, our so called waitress was serving behind the bar so we had to wait in the bar queue to get a round of drinks whilst my food was getting cold. Half the menu was not available. Never again avoid at all costs
