The Pad is a much improved version of the dancing goat. Previously we found the dancing goat very unfriendly toward children and service was dreadfully slow, although admittedly the food was mostly fine. However, on a recent visit to the Pad it couldn't have been a more different atmosphere. The kids were welcomed with a smile and given lollypops when... More

The staff were very friendly, the meal was brilliant with some good vegetarian options while keeping the traditional values of Scotland (vegetarian haggis with neeps and tatties - absolutely smashing!) The decor was ace loved the art work - always visit this wee... More

Has now changed its name. Great surroundings, loved the wallpaper, and the mural survives. Didn't have toasted teacakes or crumpets, which I would have thought fairly staple for a café, but quite willingly toasted a scone for me. That and tea good.

Now changed its name to the Pad, this small and quirky Cafe delivers some great food along with very friendly service. Small but nice menu give you decent choice of dishes. I had Jalapeño Cheese bites (packed a punch and very nice), followed by Chicken with Mushrooms & Onion gravy (Yummy!!). My wife had Fish & Chips (so fresh and... More

This was our first visit to the Dancing Goat in Neilston which is soon to be called (The Pad). We were greeted by a lady called Linda who was exceptionally nice. We were only in for a snack but we're given treatment as if we were in a posh restraunt! We both had baked potatoes with cheese and onion which... More

Visited this new take away on a very busy night (cattle show day) although it was quiet when we were there. On arrival we were met with a lot of swearing from the kitchen which wasn't really appropriate. Food was ready relatively quickly. Went home to eat and it was nothing amazing. Burrito wasn't particular full and the 'Mexican chips'... More

I didn't think it would be possible but the Goat has just got even better. Their new Taco Loco Mexican Take Away/Delivery Service is completely fabulous. I can't recommend the food highly enough. Well done for a really good idea and a really good culinary experience :)
