    Lovely cosy place down one of the little medieval closes for which Elgin is famous. The food was delicious and the baked chocolate pudding a creamy delight

    My only criticism about the food was that the haggis balls didn’t really have the taste/ texture/ spice I would have expected for haggis. Server went to remove the plates of others sitting at table while i was still eating. Nothing major really. Didn’t feel there was an ambience as it was full and very noisy with everyone talking but that’s not really something they can change. Some people talk louder than others.

    The staff are lovely, really attentive, but our fish and chips were really greasy and the portion so big it was far too much to eat and felt wasteful.

    Great little venue in Elgin, lovely ambience inside and out. We arrived in afternoon and had a drink, enquired about dinner reservation for the evening and advised full. Left and checked OpenTable and tables were available so booked..... Dinner was good, decent portions & staff friendly.

    The food was delicious, I thought my burger was one of the best I have had in the area. Really nice cocktails and the staff were very pleasant and attentive. What we ordered was reasonably priced although we did think that some items on the menu were a bit on the pricier side, but nothing too extreme. Will definitely be going back :D

    My partner and I dined here for his 28th birthday. We were seated promptly and our server got us our drinks quickly. We ordered a starter to share and a main meal each. The food was lovely, we shared the haggis bon bons from one plate (which was a little tricky), I had fish and chips and the birthday boy had a burger. The restaurant got busier towards 8pm as more reservations came, which made the restaurant louder, but not uncomfortable. The servers were attentive and offered us more drinks, desert etc. and over all it was a great evening. We were asked for our table back around 8:20pm, which I was disappointed at as I’d booked the table for 2 hours as it was a birthday meal. Towards the end we felt rushed and had to get the bill and leave - but we would have had another round of cocktails given the chance. They cannot accept tips via card so make sure to bring some cash along too!

    Birthday lunch with my sisters The food was very good but service not so good as maybe a shortage of staff. After our main course waited a while but no one came back to offer us a dessert or coffee so we left and went to another place for coffee and also had a bottle of wine .
