Great choice of food and tasted lovely. The chef and staff kindly put the pizza oven on for us even though it wasn’t due to be on so we were very pleased and it made us feel extra special. All the staff were lovely and attentive too. Will be back again.

Excellent. Cosy outdoor space. Great wine list and excellent value for money. We had pizza fresh from the outdoor pizza oven, sweet potato fries, chunky chips and crispy onion ring! The perfect feast! Good gun selection and nice glasses... fresh fruit garnishes. It’s the small touches.

Food was nice, but felt it was overpriced. Due to the restrictions, the hotel had worked really hard on their outdoor space, fire pits & heaters to help keep their guests warm. Staff were pleasant and attentive taking drink orders and table service.

The food was very good, good portions and the qualify was first rate. Service was a bit patchy and we were made to feel uncomfortable when we decided not to order alcohol.

Arrival was confusing and poorly organised.

Excellent... pizza fresh from the outdoor oven. Outdoor seating and excellent customer service. Lovely drinks in a nice glass! Cocktails with full garnishes. Sweet potato fries on point. It’s a gem of a place with a welcoming atmosphere. Excellent value for money.

The service was really slow - food not great / weird pizza options and no one attended to us properly - we had to keep asking for service.

The food took ages to come out too and there was not enough staff working. Sadly a very poor experience for us as 9 adults .

Booked a table for 3 on Monday night
Quality of food was very good but let down by terrible service
Over 40 mins before our starters arrived and over an hour for our mains.... didn’t order dessert as we had no idea how much longer we would have to wait for that

Not very clear as to where to sign in, sanitise hands etc... booked a table but when arriving just told to eventually take a seat.. slow ordering and service but only seemed to be one member of staff working both the bar, dining room and outside.... could do with clearer signage and guidance about the new ‘rules’...... good food though if you’re prepared to wait a bit.

When I booked I was shown the pizza menu as well as the ordinary one. I had booked with this option available ,but I was surprised that the season for the pizza oven was over by the time of our booking .
We all enjoyed our meal and will come back again.

I was so disappointed! We booked a table at 5:30pm as we knew we had to be in our seats for our show by 7pm. Initially we were taken to our table and given drinks very quickly but we were then forgotten about..... We ordered from their lovely menu but wait 45mins for dinner to arrive!! We then could not take advantage of the 2 course offer as we didn't have time! Food was lovely when it arrived just wish we has not been so rushed in the end.

Took our German friend there for a quiet meal. There was entertainment which was a bit loud but staff were very accommodating and found us a quieter table. The food was delicious and the portions were a good size. Nice choice of local beers. Staff were very pleasant and helpful.

Poor service. Disinterested young guy showed us to table. Waitress unable to understand our drinks order due to language barrier. Sent young guy to double check our order - ended up getting charged for much more expensive beverage. Did get this rectified in the end. General impression was a lazy attitude. Pizza was delicious, nice being able to see them being cooked.

This was only the second time we ate here, the first being many years ago. We were pleased by the range of menu items and the ambience was nice. However, it was too hot and even when one of the staff turned down the radiator right next to us it took ages to cool down.
Also while my wife's Chicken Milanese was delicious, my Pork shoulder was bland, even the Haggis was bland.
The mainly very young waiting staff were pleasant and helpful, but difficult to attract their attention as they were rushed most of the time and did not look about them. All in all a quite nice experience and we will return.
