The best place I've been eating in Scotland. Good price, better food and great staff. The ribs were delicious and the cookies were probably the best dessert I've ever tried.

Service staff was slow to acknowledge we were there. Cocktails were great, but took between 20 and 40 minutes to arrive. The starter food was ok, about what we expected, but the main course was terrible. Staff were constantly making mistakes as we watched while...More

We were struggling to find a dog friendly pub when we wanted lunch and were directed here. Very friendly dog allowed in and given bowl of water. Good draught beer. Nice egg and avacado salad lunch. Nice music too nothing too heavy at lunchtime.

I would say that you should visit this place maybe for some small bites and their amazing cocktail list. I'm from New York where cocktail bars abound, which means I have high (maybe sometimes unfairly high) standards, but the concoctions here could definitely do well...More

The food at Scotch and Rye is awesome. The burgers are great, and I loved the popcorn haggis and would recommend it to anyone. The bar is very extensive and the venue is great for any occasion!

Scotch and Rye had a restaurant environment that I have never experienced before. The staff treated us very well and checked on us regularly. The food was excellent and the hot wing challenge is nothing but entertaining. Lastly, the drinks are one of a kind...More

Man oh man what an experience at Scotch & Rye! Went there with some fellow study abroad students and had a great time! I thought I was brave enough to tackle their spicy wings challenge (spicier the better for me), BOY WAS I WRONG. I've...More

Thanks for leaving us a review. And YES the hot wings are VERY HOT. You'll need to practice eating more HOT wings and come back to do the challenge again to make it into our hall of fame. See you again soon.

The burger we had was good, mostly because the meat was such good quality! The chili dog we had was also very good as were the sweet potato fries.

The Haggis Popcorn is literally life changing. American influenced dishes served with American level service. Whether it’s for brunch, lunch or just out being a lush, you can’t go wrong. But seriously, trust me on the Haggis Popcorn.

I am inclined to agree, they have a tendency to report negative reviews so they overall score is not accurate. And they also unleash the owner through Facebook to question why you do things... So if you see Mr Loades, be... More
