If you haven't been to Johnston's Bat and Bistro you are missing out on wonderful food and excellent coffee. The staff are friendly and the service is spot on! Located just off the High Street it is very well situated. The toilets are spotlessly clean which you cannot say for some others in town. I must mention their tablet which... More

Hot chocolate was to die for best I've ever had , mac cheese was lovely as well Got a half portion and I'm glad I did, there was plenty on plate, don't think I could have eaten a full one if that was half. Service was excellent.

Went with my Daughter today- we both had the macaroni. It was very tasty and nicely presented. Service was really efficient and friendly. The only wee comment is it was quite chilly, but it was a particularly cold day. Definitely recommend.

My daughter and I were passing through Falkirk and this was our first visit. Service was efficient and friendly. We both had a sandwich/wrap with fries, although we were both tempted with various items on the menu! Food was delicious and the portions were huge. We had the best ever hot chocolates to round off our meal; topped with chocolate... More

Great place to eat. We enjoyed a selection of starters with a good bottle of wine. Friendly prompt service in a busy Friday night. Recommend Bruschetta and Goats Cheese but to be honest everything is fab!

This was a first time visit to this bar and restaurant for me and it was a pleasant surprise. Our party of four had dinner and several drinks, the food was delicious and the service from a young male employee was excellent. The bar stocks Isle of Harris gin which is a good reason to visit. Well done to the... More
