Lovely food and good service. If I was being ultra picky maybe the thyme jus with the haggis could have had a bit more thyme and the mash with the salmon could have benefited from more horseradish but they are both more to personal taste as opposed to anything wrong with the food. Will certainly revisit and recommend to anyone after honest tasty food.

Service was much better than last time we were here though the first course took some time to arrive. This seemed to be the same for other customers, though the restaurant wasn't busy, possibly a kitchen issue rather than the fault of waiting staff. The food sounded much better on the menu than it actually was. My mushroom and garlic soup tasted nice, but I stank of garlic for a while afterwards - why put lots of garlic in mushroom soup? There was one small piece of bread to accompany the soup and any additional bread had to be paid for. Not standard policy in most restaurants, where a basket of bread is normally free. Veggie options were poor and the main courses tasted bland and unremarkable. I feel that this restaurant is geared towards tourists and that they are being fobbed off with unimaginative Scottish sounding fare, as I have heard much better reports of Howies at Waterloo Place, which is more likely to be patronised by the locals.Then there is the discretionary service charge added on to the bill which most people are probably too embarrassed to query. I think tourists deserve better.

Unfortunately I had to give service a 3. This is the 1st time we've experienced, not bad service, but felt so rushed. We ordered bread houmous and balsamic vinegar we weren't even finished when our starters came out. Immediately after starters our main was served there was no time in between which made the experience very disappointing

Other than the our table being a little cold and draughty with people coming and going altogether a tasty, great value lunch with excellent service. I look forward to returning soon

Incredible meal for a very reasonable price! I'm interested to return in the spring and summer months to see how they change the dishes according to seasonal produce!

Haggis and Valpolicella go surprisingly well together! great food, great service - just as shame there is't one like it in Bristol (where I live) ;-)

Howie's is fast becoming a firm favourite of mine. Good food, un-fussy but efficient service and seemingly always busy. Lunchtime 2/3 course deal is great value for money and I hope to return again very soon.

Really enjoyed our lunch yesterday. Very good range of dishes (hard to decide!), and great value. Excellent service. Highly recommended for catch ups with friends!
