We had a friendly greeting on arrival and were down to our table, we were just having a burger, and there was plenty of choice. The beef patties were slightly over done and a bit dry, but the flavours were good. The accompanying fries were more like chips and lacked the crunchy texture I expected. The ketchup bottle was terrible... More

We waited 28minutes to get served at 6:45 on a Saturday night (not even its busiest time). The manager was really rude when we complained. Quite simply, avoid this place like the plague. The phrase 'fur coat, no knickers' springs to mind!!!!

We booked the party deal - Two Course Meal with Wine in the Chippy doon the lane - two hours Party Pod and a booth in the bar. The walk into to the Chippy doon the lane was a bit off putting, however inside the restaurant was lovely, the food was great, the staff brilliant, we went to the Party... More

Lovely feel to the place. Staff nice and welcoming. Gantry nice. Seating comfy. Loads of stairs and not well lit. Nearly come a cropper. Will be back.

Service extremely slow considering the amount of staff on. Allot of standing around chatting rather than actually working. Food okay I suppose. Completely wasted by the cheap nasty sauce put in the well past its date Heinz bottle.. I'm pretty sure passing off illegal I know if it happens with drinks there is a fine so can't imaging it being... More

1st visit & in honesty was expecting a trendy up beat place going by what I had heard about it. Nothing fancy (well to me), food was good, waitress was a bit of a pest while eating, I dont wish to say "yes lovely" when I still had a full plate sitting nearly. Burger bun I could probs have bought... More

You walk into One Up expecting a nice, somewhat relaxed environment in a cool/trendy bar on a Saturday early afternoon. What you get is a moody waitress, slow service, relatively average food and an awkward seat that isn't even level with the ground. Would've been nice to have stored our coats somewhere. We had a small booth for 2 people... More

Had the party pad booked from 5pm to 7pm but didn't get in until nearly quarter past. Batteries in the mic didn't work so waited another 10 minutes before we could properly murder a song! However, staff were in just before 7pm to give us our notice to leave - poor! Had a table booked for food for 7pm, only... More
