Visited for a family meal. The whole experience was a bit retro, not a deliberate vibe, just the decor and fittings haven't been changed since 1970. However on the positive side all the food served was excellent, home cooked pub grub favourites. The fish and...More

Thank you for the comments. We are somewhat restricted in space and style in the bar but like to think we are clean and tidy if not trendy. Filter coffee is served but as stated in the menu but we do offer a full coffee...More

Pretty average pub dining room with friendly staff and average food if you like chips with everything. Why can't pubs offer fresh green vegetables?!

Thanks for your comments. We do have daily deliveries of veg and most dishes give a choice of veg or salad. Chips are standard but we also offer boiled and mashed potatoes.

Worst experience ever. Food was average and the service was really bad! Waitress clearly should not work with the public, very rude. Still waiting to be offered a drink! If in Huntly go to cafe India instead or the Bank Cafe.

Nice dining room had a seat at the window which was lovely. There was a good choice of dishes on the menu and it was served quickly and by pleasant staff.

The 'restaurant' are a few tables squeezed around a bar in what feels like a corridor. We were advised to wait in the Cafe Bar until a table became free. That was quite an experience - the 'cafe bar' is a spit-and-sawdust affair with drunks...More

In with the family for a meal. It was quite quick to arrive and there was plenty of it. Very well presented, fresh produce and doesn't break the bank. I like that there are also quite a few specials on the board to choose from...More
