Long journey? Tired? Cold? Want free WiFi? Eat here. The service is good and not a huge crowd. But I’m visiting in November so consider that. Pint of fosters and a hearty size dish of fish and chips ran me about £12 which is fair.

Thanks Allan, we have changing facilities available downstairs for all to use. We used to have them in the gents toilets but too many “big babies” on the weekends were damaging them.

Sorry to hear that your visit did not meet your expectations. We put our breakfast menu out in the late evening, promoting our breakfast offer and opening times. This generates us some repeat custom the following day from people who may not realise that we...More

Was impressed by the Alexander bain, the service was quick and food good. We went twice in a four day break, so must have been good.

Got a burger with chips and onion rings vs. Burger did have pulled pork on it but the blue cheese sauce on it was flavorless.

Thanks for the review, that’s not something anyone has brought up about the sauce before. If I receive anymore feedback about it I shall pass onto our catering development manager.

Usual big boozer with everything going for it. Pretty good food at very good prices as is the drinks and served in the middle of the afternoon; what would we do without them?

Quite busy for a Wednesday night but enjoyed the atmosphere in here. Friendly, chatty bar staff. Spoke with some of the locals. Good selection of drinks . My English colleague likes single malt so he tried a couple and was very pleased with them

0des: I see that you are from Wick so why not just pop in and take a look. There is a menu on each table and no obligation to buy.
