We both had 2 courses each which were so substantial that we couldn't future in a pudding. Quite delicious and once again the staff were all... More

Lovely haddock and chips for him, nice ham, mozzarella and pesto ciabatta for me and chicken goujons for our two year old. Crayons and paper from a friendly waitress kept her happy during... More

I had a very good supper here before heading to the opera at the nearby community hall. The staff were good and quality of everything noticeable. I started with Cullen Skink, a favourite of mine - smoked haddock soup. It was tasty, the haddock a little light compared to the potato but because it was very thick and exceedingly hot,... More

The chicken nuggets are on the dinner menu and have a very clear description. This dish is aimed at adults, as we have a separate childrens' menu. This is one of 8 starters, plus specials. We also have, on our standard evening menu, 10 main courses and 8 sweets, which are all plus specials. Plenty of choice for most people... More

Excellent place to have dinner. Not to busy and not too loud. Cocktails are really good and the food is really nice. Large portions at good prices. Staff are friendly and helpful. Worth a visit for lunch or dinner.
