About The Raven

Our menu boasts our delightful roast meats, including our famous pigletto and Notorious P.I.G sandwiches. Our juicy burgers are always a winner, as are our new bubble waffles for that indulgent dessert. We have a great range of veggie, vegan and GF items too.

A slightly bigger food menu / side dishes would’ve been good. Other than that, nice wee bar.

Pandemic measures were good without detracting from experience. Temperature checks done on arrival and sanitiser provided at each table. Food and service good as always.

Wine that we requested was out of stock but staff were very friendly and accomodating when offering an alternative. Felt very secure and food was delicious. Would definitely recommend and re-visit!

First time out post lockdown. Had a great time despite the covid procedures. Shame about lack of music or commentary on the football. Service was great from the girls & food was great compliment to the evening. Thanks guys.

Great food, socially felt very safe regarding covid as every precaution possible even while a football game was on during dinner time. Everything was much appreciated

I went to the Raven for drinks with my husband and another couple. I pre-booked which meant we didn't have to wait. The staff were friendly, they directed us to our table, the one way system was signposted and the capacity was minimised meaning I had no concerns about safety. The only slight negative was table service meant having to wait on staff coming round to take orders, the frequency of them checking on patrons needing drinks could've been better. A lot of premises now use an app which enables you to order drinks when you are ready rather than having to wait on staff, this is maybe something that can be considered. Overall, we all enjoyed our time in the Raven and would definitely recommend.

5 stars all round! Had a really good time, the food and drink was excellent. The service was top notch. And I thought The Raven have done a great job with the social distancing measures and all the staff wearing face masks. All the staff were really laidback whilst also respecting the rules and making sure everyone else was too. I’ve been to a few places since restaurants and bars have reopened and they’ve just been far too strict and over the top. But The Raven got the balance of having a good time but also maintaining the rules spot on. Will definitely be back!

Enjoyed visit. Felt comfortable, not crowded and well spaced out for social distancing. Look forward to visiting again but hopefully cocktails will be back on the menu.

Impressed by the measures taken to offer a safe environment for customers. Food and drink great as always, atmosphere a bit odd due to music guidelines.

Very well organised with all the necessary safety precautions taken, and staff were great, from the doorman to the host to the staff taking orders. Usually great music in here too, but unfortunately none allowed at the moment. Boooooo
