We've eaten here on several occasions. The food is always great. Previously I've always gone for the soup and sandwich option but on my last visit I went for the homemade burger. I have to say it's one of the best burgers I've ever tasted. The service is excellent, on a par with the food. The staff are friendly, courteous... More

However if you didn't like the sauce you could ask another prawns with sauce on the side and we will... More

Visited today and was quite disappointed with my lunch and also the cost of this. I had ordered a panini and also a baked potato. The panini was quite hard round the edges and the potato was obviously done in the microwave. The salad was very standard salad that i could have done myself. I was shocked when the bill... More

Dear customer. We are very disappointed with your review and with the fact that the food didn't meet your expectations. We can assure you that our baked potatoes are baked in the oven and the salad on the plate is complimentary. We are using only the high quality ingredients like Orkney cheddar for your baked potato or Royal Ice creams... More

I took my parents out for a lunch and ended up in the Quaich. It might not have been my first choice but I'm really glad we chose it. We ordered two salads which were very well presented and far more than just salads with quite a variety of different ingredients that made for a real treat. I ordered the... More

Lovely food and great service. The Scottish breakfast is fantastic along with the soups the baked potatoes etc etc I could go on. The burgers are not so good and I've had a few bad ones, I'd suggest changing your supplier or trying a different range? Very bitty with hard bits and just not that good. I've stopped having them...

We had a small private function here and the service and help we got was exceptional. Pamela and Martin went out of their way to make it a special evening and Megan was an excellent waitress. The food was delicious and efficiently served and the magic show put on specially for us was just that-MAGIC.
