Lovely christmas atmosphere, service very slow and difficult to get anyones attention although it was busy. Having eaten here for years I have a good idea of what to expect (cheap and cheerful) and I can only imagine the kitchen must have new staff. I order crispy potato skins for my starter and received a microwaved soggy half baked potato... More

Visited with my daughter Friday 4th November. Very warm welcome to a pleasant ambience with immediate service. We went for the pre-theatre menu - two courses £9.99. I had the Cajun chicken followed by the Haggis and neeps. Both courses excellent and the whisky sauce with the Haggis is to die for. My daughter had potato skins followed by the... More

18 of us dined for a family party and we were really looked after by Derek and his team. Food was excellent and really reasonable. This is a great bar with character. We visited on a Saturday night and it was really busy. DJ playing great music and we even managed a dance! Great place with friendly staff

Came across this pub whilst looking for another and heading down a wrong street . When we first entered it was very quiet , however it did fill up with more couples and young groups. The food was very nice and lots of choice and very friendly waiting staff.

Sadly the experience was spoilt slightly by them serving piping hot fudgecake to our 8 year old, and then initially claimed that it was advertised as hot on the children's menu;but... More
