Wouldn't recommend the Sunday roast here. Treated family today and really disappointed. Beef so tough we couldn't eat it and roast puddings very dried out.

We had dinner here one night while staying at the Caledonian. The food was very good. The service was a bit slow. We enjoyed our meal.

West End
Prevailing winds meant that most cities that grew in
industrial Britain had their most desirable
neighbourhoods to the west – upwind of factory fumes.
