                                      Another lovely visit to the Giddy Goose! 2 for 1 on pizza and burgers what value! The spicy fish burger was delicious and the pizza was so tasty I was told! Presentation was first class! The surroundings are so lovely and Caleigh and Erin were so helpful and efficient!

                                      Despite being told the wine had been chilled for 48 hours my wine was still not chilled. perhaps fridges need looked at?

                                      The cocktails and food were nice however service was a bit slow and it was not overly busy. I am not one to complain but we had been in twice in one day at either side of an appointment. Altogether our bill was over £150. We had paid our bill and were just waiting on our lift when the server said they would need the table back in 15 mins. That’s fair enough and we told them we would be gone by then and were just waiting on our lift. They then came back and said the next table was early so we had to leave now, there were a number of other tables available that could of been used or we could of been sat at until our lift came but they were not offered. When we asked where we could go there was no answer and we were asked again to leave. Tainted the whole experience and won’t be rushing back unfortunately.

                                      We’ve just been and been charged full price for the **marked cocktail even though I told the waiter it says on the menu 50% off to be told that’s on Thursdays only. Very disappointed with our visit today. Too noisy, we were eating before we even received our drinks

                                      The pizzas had a huge amount of pepperoni which we loved. The crust was lovely but base could do with being a little thicker. Very pleasant girls serving us.

                                      Staff were helpful....very short staffed...it was busy ...had to wait an hour for food. Our wee one was last to get food. Surely a hot dog could haveem dished up bit quicker. My burger was burnt and my daughter thought her burger was not cooked well enough. Pizza seemed OK. Not best experience.

                                      We booked a table on New Year's Eve for 21.30 and we're really looking forward to our visit. On arrival we were offered a drinks menu. When we asked for the food menu we were told the kitchen closed at 21.00?! The staff were very apologetic, we had a mocktail each then left to find somewhere for food as we were starving@

                                      The food was amazing you get a lot for the money. The service was excellent and you are left alone to enjoy your meal. Overall a fantastic experience and I will be back.

                                      Great food, pizzas here are fabulous, as are the cocktails. Service was brilliant, no mean feat, given the busyness of several Christmas Eve family get togethers. We will be back next time we’re in the area.

                                      Had a great time. Food and drink was lovely & great value. Service was exceptional, Francis went above and beyond 😊 will definitely be back again. Just a shame to see it quieter due to Covid “advice” 😞 Also very dog friendly.

                                      Went for our companies Christmas night out. Unfortunately we were hugely disappointed. No Christmas Crackers on the table, other than the over kill of tat outside nothing was very festive. On entering we were handed sticky and obviously over used paper menus, not a great start! Ordered a bottle of wine and when it came to the table the waitress didn't even open it. Ordered food and when it came to the table it looked not too bad. Chicken Burger was served on a stale Brioche Bun and tasted very sour. Strange relish. Loaded Fries were nothing but frozen skinny fries with a pile of "Lamb" and about 4 other things that had no business being put together, again very strange sour taste. All this was served up on children's plastic plates that skidded around the table when you tried to eat from them. No sign of any management to direct our complaints to either, just the young, not very well trained, waitresses. Definitely wont be back. Disappointing experience !

                                      One of our favourite places to eat. The atmosphere is always welcoming, the staff are always helpful and friendly. Then you have the food, presentation is fantastic but the taste does all the talking.

                                      Took nearly 40 minutes to take our drinks and food order taken. Burgers weren't cooked through, red in the middle. Brownie for desert was cold. Partner had a sponge cake for desert and it was very dry, they asked for cream and was told there was none. No offer of ice cream or anything else.

                                      We went to the Giddy Goose on a recommendation, and we weren’t disappointed. It’s an interesting and eclectic mix of 80s, Caribbean holiday, and Scottish art house. The service was great, the food different but accessible, and an eclectic drinks menu. My only minor criticism would be that it would be great to have two drinks menus per table as they take some studying! I’d imagine there are a fair few regulars, so I expect everyone learns what’s on the menus anyway 😀

                                      Lovely venue, great service and good food. Unfortunately at the table right behind us one of the party was telling her friend in rather a loud voice about her birth stories as I was eating but this is obviously out of the control of the restaurant and I would not hesitate to return.
