Walking round Cumbrae and popped in here for a drink. Really friendly staff the owner took time out for a chat (the also own the Clutha in Glasgow) great wee beer garden overlooking the harbour and the young guy taking the orders was cheery and...joking. Didnt have any food but the aromas coming from the kitchen were amazing. A pleasant surprise was £3.90 for a pint of cold Guinness (1990 prices) Millport is one of those places always wanted to visitMore

Myself and a group of friends decided to visit Millport for the afternoon for a run round the island on our bikes and to grab dinner. Once we arrived we decided to get some food in us first before taking a run round the island...and getting our ferry home. Upon arrival, the staff were very nice, but told us that since we did not have a booking we were to sit outside; which honestly didn't bother us. We ordered food at the bar, then that's when the wait began. We were told that they had a backlog of checks which we didn't mind, despite the place not looking all that busy. An hour and a half for some bangers and mash seemed excessive though, especially since the mash was cold. The only reason we waited is because one of us somehow managed to get all of their food within half an hour, so we didn't even get to eat together! We were in hope that ours wouldn't be far behind. One of the waiting staff did very kindly take our picture, though. We won't be back.More

I went into the Royal George with my girlfriend for a drink before a cycle. We went up to the bar to order and we were greeted by a lady that got very angry just by looking at us and seeing someone " diffetent" than...her. I was born and brought up in Glasgow but I an of Indian heritage and she was shouting at us as if we don't know English. However, I can guarantee that our English is 100 times better than her given the fact that my gf and I have 4 degrees between us! It got worse when we sat down as the bar lady looked over at me and shouted " sanitize your hands and sign the book!" , at the top of her lungs. At that point I stood up and advised her that we did this o arrival. She then shouted " I'm not talking to you" in a very aggressive manner. Even if she wasn't, she was still being rude and aggressive to me. At that point I felt very uncomfortable and had to get up and leave due to her intimidating and aggressive tone. While leaving she then shouted again in even a more aggressive manner. I then replied by informing her that I heard her the first time. I have never experienced such vile aggression towards me since my days as a child living in Kirkhill. This ruined the entire day and left a terrible impression of both the Royal St George.More

We were served by a lovely chap (Max/Matt) who informed us they weren't yet doing the 'eat out to help out' scheme even although we had seen it advertised on the HMRC website. Not sure why this was the case. The food was ok. The...'crusty bread' accompanying the Cullen skink was limp cheap white sliced bread. The peas with the fish were weirdly minted something that goes with lamb not fish and although the tartare sauce tasted fresh it was overpowering. Sadly, although the fish looked great, it was on the greasy side. Disappointingly the female who we asked for our bill was extremely abrupt and came across as if she would rather not be there. Such a shame as the young guy was polite and friendly, maybe over compensating for her rudeness. It's extremely unlikely we'll return here on our next visit to the Island.More

I've already reviewed this establishment under the hotel section and would suggest you read all the reviews there. Suffice to say myself and a host of others found the staff / owners extremely rude. Maybe the food's good, but I didn't get a chance to...find out as , despite being "dog friendly", I was rudely ejected as only 3 dogs are allowed at a time!More
