Read about Roseleaf on several blogs and decided to try it out. We made reservations for a Saturday brunch. Food was amazing and different than most places we'd been too...nice options of vegetarian plates and fun takes on traditional meals. I had the Roseleafer (vegetarian Scottish breakfast) and my husband had the avocado toast with bacon. Both were delicious and... More

We had called for a meal a few months ago but as we had not booked, no tables were free. We booked in advance for lunch. Very busy place. Quirky interior. Mac n cheese with garlic bread was nice but tiny portion. Chips with my husbands burger were ok but not great. Staff friendly.

Cheers for checking us out and sozz the portions weren't big enough for you, generally big enough for most? If you want more, let us know and we're only too happy to provide. More

A place to meet a mix of locals and art students, this place has great, REAL food, and whether you're a veggie, vegan or meat eater there's something for you. It also has great staff, lots of character, and some interesting teas!

My wife and I visited as we were staying locally near Britannia Quay and having looked at trip advisor reviews chose it for our evening meal as it was highest rated. It seems to be very popular and as we had not booked we were told that we had to vacate our table by a certain time, due to an... More

Thanks for your input and the batter is gram flour to make it dairy free and isn't generally as crisp as regular. Thanks for popping in though and hopefully see you again for something else of the menu:) More

Fantastic pub and it's a must to reserve... Did not get a seat when we walked in, booked for dinner then. People who did not book for dinner did not get a chance to dine too. We had some of the local dishes, Scots Hake, Cullen Skink and some other dishes. They were all great, especially the Mac & Cheese... More

This little place was a revelation. I found it on TripAdvisor last night and decided to have lunch today. Booking ahead was a smart move as it's pretty small but what a discovery! Lovely old pub splendidly refurbished with hats and teapots.Cocktails for 2 or more are served in teapots and cups. Brilliant. Food is all home cooked and delicious... More

The vegan mushrooms on toast were incredible! My sister originally got the vegan Thai curry (so we could share) but it was very bland, the waitress checked back with us and with out fuss took it back and brought out Eggs Benedict - which my sister has had there many times before and is always wonderful.

After reading all the great reviews, we were looking forward to lunch here. Tried to get a table without booking last Saturday, but it was full, so booked a table for Wednesday via the website, all ok. When we arrived, the girl at the bar was not very smiley or welcoming, and looked a little puzzled that we had a... More

Hi Lesley, first of all thanks for popping in and let me apologise that you never had a good experience. We do get busy most Saturdays which is why we were full that day and not sure how you booked on the Wednesday (which might have lead to the server being confused) as we don't have the facility to take...
