Can't understand any restaurant that would turn away clients wanting a drink when they are empty. Can only surmise they grossly overcharge so can happily restrict their clientele even when empty. Sad

Stopped in here for lunch and was pleasantly surprised with the BEST meal I've had in Scotland! Very tasty meals, well-presented, local and ethical produce. Shame I didn't leave room for dessert.

Yes, they have plenty of gluten free dishes. My daughter is coeliac so we have to pay particular attention to this in restaurants. She was delighted with the choices on the menu and the specials board.
