A good solid pub meal. Amazing selection of whiskies. Helpful and friendly staff. A welcome basket of toys / trinkets for the children to play with.

We have been here several times in the past and return because it has been very good. Unfortunately it seems to have been on a downward drift for a while now. If we didn't know it from the past, our last two visits in particular...More

From the outside the building looks old and forgotten. Once inside you are greeted with an awful interior design. The restaurant tries to looks like the house of a scottish grandmother and succeeds. There are two areas, but we only saw one. The walls are...More

In search of some decent food in Fortrose (not a lot of choice) found The Anderson and popped in for a look - first impression was of a dark and gloomy bar/dining area but a local outside told me the food was superb. Then this...More
