Very attentive service despite being so busy. Food was good value. Starter and mains were good, dessert a little disappointing. Happy with bill and overall had a nice evening. Will return as always.

Wrong item brought to begin with but was quickly changed when noticed. Waiting time was reasonable, food was lovely. Set menu available 7 days which is rare. Good value. Bill quite confusing with layout. Overall great food and service and will definitely be returning on our next visit to Craig Tara.

Very nice evening meal with friends on Friday, friendly staff and the food was lovely. Plenty of options. I liked the informal atmosphere, you didn’t have to whisper, everyone was just enjoying themselves.

Food is always great. Tonight, the service made us feel a bit like an inconvenience to the staff - not the most welcoming atmosphere. That being said, this is the first time I have ever had a negative word to say about the service at the Balgarth - perhaps our waitress had something else on her mind.

Found this place on google maps as one of the closest places to dine from haven Craig Tara, so glad we decided to venture out and eat else wear, the food was amazing even better when you know the steaks are half price :-) couldn't fault it in anyway the children’s meals are huge and so cheap, I had the blue fillet my husband had a medium rare fillet both cooked to perfection, we will hopefully be back next year to Craig Tara so will defiantly coming again 100% recommended.

Service was slow. 2hrs to eat a 3course meal. Steak was really bad. Not sure how you can charge nearly £30 for a steak when you cannot cook them correctly. Asked 4times to see where our dessert was (took 40mins!). Wine was nice, play area really good for kids.

Having lived here as a child I was keen to retrace my steps and was delighted to be able to have a meal here. The food was of good quality, with a decent selection to chose from without the menu being overwhelming and my son and I enjoyed a lovely bottle of wine (Montrachet). The staff were welcoming and friendly, attentive service, so overall a great experience. If you are looking for somewhere to eat in the area, would highly recommend.

Steaks are always cooked to perfection. Salted caramel brownie is a tasty pudding.

Just OK Would not return, simply because there are far better regards in the area! Service was acceptable, food was average, no wow factor, nothing to remember the place or the evening, nothing stood out. As a family we eat out regular, this is an honest appraisal.
