Food was excellent as was the service. Selection of beer and lager was extremely poor, there are so many excellent small breweries in Scotland that would improve your menu. I would happily recommend some. The atmosphere was ok but I think the current circumstances had a lot to do with this. Would I book again, yes but please consider extending the beer/lager choice.

We ate in the restaurant last night 2-3-2020 & it was very quite as we were in @ 6pm. I have to say the food quality presentation and taste was incredible. Every course was Absolutely delicious. Some nice warm crusty roll assortment would be a nice added touch upon arrival (free of charge). I would say that the atmosphere wasn’t that enjoyable tho. Its very dark in the restaurant and pretty dull. Some brightness and wow factor could improve the overall experience. But the food was outstanding.

I had the smoked mackerel pâté to start followed busy the hake. Both dishes were absolutely delicious. A couple of glasses of Tin Pot Hut Sauvignon Blanc finished with the creme brûlée topped off a lovely 3 course meal from the market menu.

A very warm welcome and escort to our table. The waiter explained the menu clearly and precisely. Starters seemed to be a little delayed but we were in no hurry. Unfortunately my request for Parmesan was forgotten resulting in my meal being cold. Appreciated the gesture from the restaurant manager by way of apology. Apart from this, a lovely meal and evening had.

Enjoyed our stay. All staff very helpful and friendly. Only criticism was that the fourth floor bar was far too cold. Guests were having to wear jackets and shawls. We would’ve stayed longer in the bar but had to leave as my wife had no coat with her having come straight from the restaurant.
