So disappointed at how we were literally swept out of here before 11pm. We were looking forward to a truely Scottish Hogmanay, but our evening was brought to a very unfriendly halt, as we were evicted before our drinks were finished. Not the welcoming Hogmanay...More

This is a cracking wee pub, serving great beers (including the locally produced Harviestoun ale Shiehallion - my favourite). It has a restaurant attached and on a Wednesday it serves a curry that costs the same as two cups of coffee from the cafe across...More

Popped in for a coffee while waiting to meet a friend - was very quiet as it was just on 12 - the barmaid was very pleasant and the coffee was very good. Apparently under new ownership and due for a major refurb -

The King's Seat is undergoing change. The restaurant used to be open for most of the week, and then closed for some time. It now does Wednesday curry nights, and the restaurant has started opening at weekends. But it will then close for a while...More

This restaurant and tavern is in Dollar (Scotland) in the UK near the Ochil Hills in Central Scotland. Their food is amazing; the best we ate during our entire UK trip (and we all over the place). Their sticky toffee pudding is the best I have ever eaten and boasts a texture that is out of this world. The tavern setting is upscale, but intimate. Not to be missed.
