Food was good as it always is when we go. Just a pity the mixed grill is now off the menu but enjoyed what we had.

New decor is lovely. Staff friendly. Food very tasty but a wee side salad or similar would have added to my bbq chicken melt and improved the look on the plate (I'm sure used to come with). The menu has been vastly slimmed down so not the same "different" items on offer as used to be. Looked like pretty much any other pub menu but without the "2 for £x offers you get elsewhere. Place was very quiet for a Friday night, both pub and restaurant, needs some advertising or big promo to pull people back in (though maybe it's just cos it's Jan and everyone skint?)

Decided last minute to make a booking for New Years Day Brunch. On arrival we were promptly seated and shown where to help ourselves to tea/coffee and juice. We didn’t need to wait long between ordering and food arriving. Both adults ordered the steak pie and chicken pie, and oh my goodness the portion sizes were huge and melt in the mouth delicious. My son had the macaroni, which he gobbled down with garlic bread and chips in super quick time. Given the amount of food we were served, this was an incredible value for money meal. The only comment I would make is the bunch said it came with free toast if booked online, and that didn’t make an appearance - to be fair, it would have only spoiled our appetite for the main event. Good wholesome food, we’ll be back.

Really impressed by the food, atmosphere and service here. I’ve been for two xmas lunches and plan on going for a third on Saturday! It’s such a good deal. Baby friendly with loads of space for a pram/walking around.

Excellent food as usual, the new look restaurant is amazing! We did have to flag down staff for more drinks & to order desert but it was busy so we understood. Thanks for a great afternoon.

We came on Wednesday a party of 5 and was instantly impressed by the updated restaurant, it looked far more spacious and better layout of seating. The disappointment was the time it took to deliver our meal (approximately an hour from ordering) when 3 of us had salads and one a baked potato !!! the salads arrived minus the sides of baked potatoes and additional salads which took another 15 minutes after the meal. This is the same issue we have encountered with the mains on previous visits even when there are only 5 tables occupied in the whole restaurant why does it take so long ............... An improvement on the service would make a huge difference especially as the food is good and with the make over it is really a nice place to eat

Another excellent meal! This is a great local restaurant for us as it's within walking distance - so no "designated driver"!. The only slight query is that the online menu is out of date - this meant we were surprised that the option to have chilli with the nachos starter has been removed. Great portions, hot, freshly prepared food. Although it didn't affect us, there were no "specials" available.

Lovely food but due to few other diners not much atmosphere and the time taken to serve the food was rather lengthy considering dining room only had three other customers. To be fair the food was good when it did come. Plenty choice on menu and friendly staff member serving.

Expected better food after refurbishment, didn’t think there was enough staff to cope with food and drink orders, first glasses of white wine had to be sent back, bottle must of been open for a good while before serving. Won’t be rushing back

Its been ages since we've been here because of the hit and miss service and its like nothing, other than the new decor (which looks great!), has changed at all. Quickly shown to table when we arrived and a drinks order promptly taken followed by prompt ordering off food. My mac and cheese was delicious - really tasty with nice strong cheddar used in the dish and loved the home cooked chips too (you really notice the difference). Sadly my mum's steak pie arrived luke warm at best. Sent back to the kitchen and while the steak got a minute in the micro, the same couldn't be said for the potatoes as barely a quarter way through the pie, the potatoes were already stone cold. Clearing the plates took ages too after we finished (10-15 minutes) as the only waitress on was already busy with the tables that were in so god knows how they were going to cope serving (just was we were ready to leave) the huge group (around 25-30) that came in! That was one of the reasons we stopped going as the service was very hit and miss depending on how many staff were on/guests were in - usually not enough so it took forever.

When I booked I looked at the menu online. I had decided what I would like. However, on arrival we were given a dramatically reduced menu. Not one of the items I was interested in was on the menu. Serviceod although server did not know if that was the only menu. Food was quite plain. I had the Balgownie Chicken and it did not come across as home made but more something that had been bought as a ready meal. Staff were polite and I really want to like my local venue. I suggested to my friends from Dyce we go here and was a bit let down.
