Great idea, and delicious food! Highly recommend.
Excelent food and service. Definitely will come back.
This was really fun - exceeded my expectations. Great food. Friendly, professional service too.
Food was tasty but terrible service. At no point were we given any attention by your staff. We had to ask to order (after sitting there for 20 mins), no one offered us any drinks despite our glasses being empty, no desserts offered either. At the end we had to again ask for the bill then again to pay. No one really made us feel welcome and I did witness a couple of staff standing round during nothing. It wasn’t as if the place was busy. Disappointing because we really enjoyed the shooting range.
The staff were fantastic. We had a great time and they were so accommodating and willing to offer shooting advice.
Shooting was good but although restaurant staff were attentive they managed to mess up my main course. I ordered the monkfish and a side of roast potatoes but was finished the monkfish by the time the side came!
Great day out in a super cool venue. Thanks to the staff for looking after us so well.
Amazing evening! very well looked after. Will definitely be returning!!
Fab service and fun activity
I wouldn't usually bother with reviews, however this was such a massive disappointment I feel its needed. From the outset I was actually really looking forward to this visit, I came across your social media posts and loved the look and feel you were promoting. So we booked a table for 4 which was a pain on your website because whole chunks of time are missing (5ish - 8) however if you phone there are available. We booked a dinner table first and shooting experience afterwards. Our friends arrived 10mins before the reservation and went to get a drink at the bar. When we arrived 15min later they still hadn't been served! My friend made a joke of it, however this was the theme for the night. We gave up at the bar and went to the table. We were shown to the table and whilst sitting down a server came over and asked what drinks we wanted. We asked "what do you have?" because we hadn't seen a drinks menu, She said she would get one, 10mins later still no menu, so we got our own. Then a barman came across to ask what cocktails we wanted (With a really bad attitude\chip on his shoulder) we said we didn't request to order cocktails. He then proceeded to push some cocktail, we declined he tutted at me for choosing a beer (Clear water, which is a company who is doing some good in the world, whilst also being a nice beer). He told us to order "those cans" via the waitress. At this point we thought someone was winding us up. After the initial whirlwind of staff members we then didn't see anyone for 15mins even after getting there attention, I ended up asking the lady at the reservations desk if someone could take our order. When finally ordering the waitress just wasn't interested or having a bad day? She wouldn't stop pushing the meat cuts even after telling her what we would like. Food was "Ok" either not cooked as requested or overcooked. I had Haggis pops which had been fried to long and tasted of oil which maybe needed to be changed? The veniburger again was overcooked and dry to the point you couldn't taste the ingredients. That one definitely wouldn't have won a prize. Drinks came up sporadically and we had to ask 3 times for the bottle of wine we ordered. At this point everyone on the table was unimpressed and we decided just to skip dessert and get the bill. Which definitely didn't warrant the price for what we got that night. We then went downstairs to the shooting range. The range and blonde lady who showed us around and got the first drinks in was great. The whole group enjoyed the shooting, however the accompanying music was terrible and loud. Some heavy dance music radio station, doesn't really fit in with the Scottish highlands ambiance you were trying to promote. We finished up and hoped to sample some of the whisky's however it was difficult to get served and there was only 7 people in the bar including 4 of us! Bar staff didn't know much about the whisky you had. I thought restaurants were encouraged to keep people drinking because that's where the mark up is? We had two drinks and left because it was obvious the staff were calling it a night and wanted to clean up instead of serving, never known a bar where it is difficult to spend money! We ended up going around the corner to a nice restaurant and had a couple of bottles of wine and dessert. Love the concept of the restaurant, however in my opinion it appears to be poorly executed and managed. You are either under-staffed or just have staff that need replacing. Someone needs to quality control what's coming out of the kitchen. You need to encourage customer spending instead of turning tables and being an expensive burger joint.
Great activity + great venue + great service + great value = brilliant night - thank you!
Ive given the restaurant a low rating as we had a few unfortunate incidents during the meal which rather spoilt our experience. Firstly we were given wrong information about whether chips came with the steak and ended up ordering them unnecessarily. The staff did take those off the bill but that was a fairly basic mistake, especially considering the waitress had gone off to ask whether the steak came with fries before taking our order. The sticky toffee pudding was burnt and solid in the middle, presumably microwaved for too long. The staff were fine and brought out another. This is the first time I've ever sent anything back in a restaurant but it was inedible. When the bill came there were many mistakes and it took the staff about 20 mins to sort it. The staff were all very pleasant but having to complain a few times was awkward and rather spoilt the evening.
The bar staff were really helpful and friendly, they brought the food out on time and quickly. Food was great and the shooting was fun and good value for money. We would go again :)
Had a great time, lots of fun on the range
really enjoyable experience with attentive staff, a must do activity for small groups of friends or families .
Shooting great but the food was not. The steak was hard and the dessert very plain and uninspiring
Very easy to book - we booked for Gun Range Great venue, ranges are downstairs with its own bar and Bar Staff which means you don't have to miss your go on the range queuing for drinks. The staff there were very helpful and took time to explain how to work the equipment
we used the shooting range. Great fun, the team had a fab time, thank you!
Service was amazing, the gun room is epic, really great fun
It was a really cool are, the selection of beers were a bit limited, but would definitely recommend
Very friendly and helpful staff. I thought the hourly charge for the range was a bit steep though, £50 would be more reasonable.
Thanks for being so helpful
Rachel and her team were extremely attentive and accommodating. Our clients and colleagues had a fantastic evening and we have already recommended booking again.
