Great place, loved it. Will definitely be back. Choice of food is plentiful, and the music is an added bonus.

Trip Advisor

We ordered from the 2 course pre theatre menu and thoroughly enjoyed it. Portion sizes were good. The service was excellent, the girl who was attending to us was lovely, chatty and helpful. I think it’s a great place and will definitely be going back.

This is a good Scottish place. I go there with groups for dinner and traditional dancing after on Saturdays. I really like the mix of people and the prices are good for the city centre.
