4 of us met here for a pub lunch and the food was very good. (Go for the hand cut chips rather than the chips!) The Golden Ale was OK, and the service was good. Not bad at all!

Really enjoyed the food here but the service was lacking something, particularly when the restaurant filled up. Overall slightly disappointing.

A traditional Scottish Restaurant, serving a wide range of high-quality food. A real Scottish feel to the place - with suitable memorabilia on the walls and the waiting staff wear kilts. had a delicious meal, and a couple of interesting whiskies. Highly recommended.
