Had a really lovely lunch with family on 26th November. Food was really tasty and well presented. We had the £17 set menu with glass of wine . This was good value. The service was good and the waiter was really friendly . I had soup , then haddock and then fudge cake and enjoyed every bite.

    We only managed to book a table here on a Saturday evening, after contacting 10+ places in the city everywhere was full. Hoped for the best, but totally disappointed by the quality of food. Service was ok, but the food was really bad quality. Would rather had take away than eating here again.

    Lovely meal - such a shame more people do not appear to know about this little gem. Every time I've been in over the past year, there has been no other diners. This means there is no atmosphere.

    Everything was ready for us. A table that was a bit unstable was quickly fixed. Ordering and serving went smooth with no long waiting. The food perfectly coocked and laid up on the plates in a delicat way.

    The service was great and all of the waiters were nice to us. Even though the place looked a little old, the sandwiches and the pastries were delicious. I regret we could not choose our tea...

    Had a lovely anniversary meal booked very last minute. Table waiter service was very quick and efficient. Haggis Ball starters was delicious. Steak for main course (this is the only negative we had peppercorn sauce was rather watery and found it hard going cutting our steaks as the steak knifes were not the sharpest) other than that the meal was most enjoyable.
