Fish and chips x 2 easy decision and we were not disappointed. Chips were the best I have had in along time. Fish fresh and tasty with home made tartare sauce, what more do you want?

Really fantastic service, special thanks to the French fellow who was fabulous. In these difficult times very impressed with safety, space and the genuine welcome. We hope to return soon. Thanks so much to all the team - food and cocktails delicious too

Really enjoyed our visit & will certainly be back . Have recommended the venue to other friends & family . All the procedures in place re the CVD-19 are in place so well done . Would have loved to have stayed in for longer but looks like there are time slots to allow a level of fairness. Thanks 😊

A lovely night had by all of us. A lovely, cosy table, with no limit to the amount of time we had it, which made all the difference. Delicious food and lovely, friendly staff. Can’t wait to return.

Visited here on a rainy Wednesday. Enjoyed a bowl of cullen skink, which was delicious and warmed me up, alongside a nice wheat beer. The service was friendly and the barmaid and her attempted pronunciation (can't pronounce it myself) brightened my day. Would love to visit again if I'm in Glasgow.

Everything was perfect as alway. Our only issue was guilt that in this current way of life we had no option to leave a well deserved tip as we’ve become cashless and there was no provision to do so by card... 5/5 on everything!

Little atmosphere but not really your fault given COVID restrictions. We were well looked after otherwise and felt very safe. Food was excellent.
