Had the burger which was pretty bland. The chips were overly salted. The waitress was nice enough but took quite a long time to tidy up our empty plates.

Comfortable and cosy atmosphere. Kilted smartly dressed staff. 3 course meal was excellent, but spoilt by very poor dessert and slow service. The staff need to learn to show that they really care as they were a bit indifferent .More
