Me and my family visit the Highlander most Sundays for dinner. With 4 meats to a choose from and copious amounts of veg we all walk away satisfied. The staff are always friendly and make us all feel very welcome.

We booked a table for 10 and were in the dining room. The surroundings were good and the service prompt. Everyone more or less enjoyed the food. The only issue was we were left with a sweet menu but nobody came back for the order. Would probably go again.
