Heard about the restaurant through the Gourmet Society so thought we'd check it out. The menu looked good and the vegetarian options interesting. We visited on a Saturday lunchtime. The place was a bit quiet and lacking in atmosphere. The lady who served us appeared to be on her own and so didn't have much time for a welcoming smile... More

Visited today for a late Mother's day lunch. I had the bisque followed by the burger. The triple cooked chips are amazing and the burger was perfectly cooked and packed with flavour. Definitely worth a visit and a return is certain.

Really I never are anything... More

We booked for an early evening meal and arrived when the restaurant was still quiet. First impressions were positive. Nice intimate place, with a selection of local real ales and a nice ambiance. Menu choice was fine, with 2 separate soups of the day, and a friendly waiter. Drinks arrived promptly, but and we then had butter left on our... More

We went for lunch this afternoon after booking online via the website. Our waiter was was very welcoming and showed us to our table and returned after a couple of minutes with our drinks order. The menu is impressive to say the least and not your normal run of the mill dishes. As previously stated, you do wait a little... More

We popped in on a Saturday afternoon just before 2 o clock and were seated by a very friendly young man. It was then 10 minutes before we were asked if we'd like to order a drink. We then ordered a main course each- again a bit of a wait, not ideal as the Restraunt wasn't very busy, the waiter... More

Four of us went to The Stack last night and had a wonderful evening. Good selection of wines and spirits, great service from the staff and most importantly the food was fantastic. The menu all sounded delicious and it didn't disappoint. We couldn't decide on what we wanted so we all chose different dishes and had a try of each... More
