First time here - lovely, clean premises with easy parking. Steak meal was perfect, chips were ok but steak/fish was put on top instead of next to chips but fish meal was extremely dry and salad had no dressing on it. Side of vegetables was excellent. Service was excellent and they did discount fish meal. We would probably give them another chance.

Stopped off here for lunch. My steak and cheese pie on mash potato was superb, my wife had the black cherry chicken which sounds odd but delicious. It was a warm afternoon so we took advantage of the outside deck to eat. I found the staff very attentive and welcoming.

We will go back, and recommend to others.

Went on a Monday night after a domestic flight and rather late,around 9. The service , food and ambiance were all great, unfortunately we arrived during quiz night so it was a bit noisy, however that did not detract from the excellent food . Will return.

Arrived at 5.45pm for an early dinner and were told the restaurant was fully booked. Queried ability to book tables as no mention of this on their website. Eventually offered a table outside which was lovely in the afternoon sun. The food was good - great choice and loads of good beers, wines too. However was a little annoyed when we left to see plenty of empty tables still in the restaurant - they could easily have accommodated 2 sittings at some of the tables. Didn’t detract from an overall good pub meal though. Would visit again.

Been here a few times before and food has always been really good. This time I ordered the Mosgiel pizza (Margarita) and it was overcooked with weird flavours. Will probably go back but avoid the pizzas.
