Over the past few months we have attended different shows at P&J Live on 3 separate occasions and each time had a pre-show meal at the Craighaar. The previous twice the meal was very good and we had no reason for complaint. However Sundays meal was poor. The starters that we had were pretty average with not a lot of flavour about them. As for the main courses 3 of my group (myself included) had the chicken dish and quite frankly the chicken was severely overcooked, very dry and difficult to cut into. Due to time constraints we did not complain on the night but normally we wouldn't have accepted the meal. There was plenty of sauce on the place but the creamy mushrooms were pretty tasteless and very much lacking in some salt and pepper , which we did of course add. Finally we all had a coffee to round things off and which 5 out of 6 were fine. I still can't believe how our sixth one was served. We had ordered two cappuccino's one of which came in a traditional cup the other we were advised couldn't be served in the proper cup as you had run out of. Instead of just apologising and serving it in a normal cup it was served in a coffee pot which of course meant it was just milky coffee in a pot and most certainly not cappuccino. All in all a very poor standard on Sunday. At least the show was excellent which lifted our spirits. It will be interesting to read your feedback.

Enjoyed a lovely meal before attending P&J Live to see Strictly. Food and service were great, and with a purpose build path opposite the Craighaar taking you directly to the venue, it is the perfect place to go before a show for a meal.
