Went with the family to the outside inn near Larbert. Food was excellent and play area was very decent. Can't fault a thing. Staff were friendly and the place was clean.

Quirky chained restaurant/pub massive choice of choice, and it has a baby station with microwave which we loved! The food was good quality and massive portions. My kids loved the pudding choice! Definitely will be back

We arrived to this nice pub just of the motorway. It looked very nice inside. Had a big play area for the little children. Which was great. The poor thing about this experience was the food. Set the picture. A group of 11 people arriving, table all ready booked. I had no issues with going to the bar to order... More

Not the best, but not that bad! Was a lot better a few years ago, but seems basic and average these days! Needs a good clean. Staff friendly and good service but needs a rethink? Not sure if everything is deep fried?

Terrible service, very grubby interior. Probably only survives due to its proximity to hotel next door which doesn't have a restaurant

A quirky pleasant restaurant aimed mainly at children. Can be quite noisy but there are several quiet hideaways, nooks and crannies --just ask the staff and they will accommodate you. Staff are very friendly, helpful and efficient--nothing too much trouble. The food is excellent value for money, as stated "not the Ritz" but a wide choice and plenty for vegetarians.... More

Used to love coming here as a kid and find me taking my own kid to the restaurant, but it used to be such a warm and welcoming place to dine with table service now you have to go up to the bar. However I am more disappointed that I booked a table for a party of around 10 friends and family for my daughters birthday and some traveled quite a bit for that day.. anyway when I arrived nobody was front of house to greet me and had to find the table location myself nobody had come and took the cake from me I had to hand it over myself that I don't mind, but the minute you step in the door should be excellent customer service and at least a welcome, drinks orders where a joke and food orders because we had to order at the bar was really quite a carry on, I personally like table service... dishes came out from the kitchen uncooked or overcooked.. however my dish was okay ! When it came to the end of the meal one of my friends had produced a coupon for free meal for money off the thing did not work I and herself was black up fronted about the statement 'have you already redeemed this?' Of course not... really embarrassed and especially in font of other people at the bar.. however they are going to look into this and call her back.. we will see, we had got free deserts as complimentary over the complaints.. however you already receive a free desert so that was not good enough, to make matters worse no staff member brought out my daughters cake in fact when we had decided we all where fed up I collected the cake still in the box and in the bag no candles open also not even the effort.. plus they misplaced the cake...

Never will I be back

I actually have had better service at McDonald's fact !!!
