The ambience was a little stuffy for my tastes I would have liked it to be a little more relaxed. I think this is the type of restaurant that doesn’t see many real Scottish people through its door. In fact when I called to book a table I had to spell my name 4 times, despite the fact that a) it is an easy Scottish\ Irish name, b) it was an English person on the phone who should have known how to spell the name and when he read it back to me he pronounced it completely incorrectly. I could have forgiven someone who was French or German or something but coming from someone who was English was ridiculous. And when I got to the restaurant I was listed as a ‘Mr’ on the reservations.
I was so disappointed that they didn’t sell any Scottish beer or larger and the waiter didn’t even know what Irn Bru is, never mind have any! Hardly Scottish!
The two gentlemen who greeted us at the door were very standoffish and could have been warmer and more welcoming. The table service was OK, but when they were not at the table the service staff spent far too much time standing around chatting amongst themselves which would explain why they didn’t know our table number, and if I want to see a waiter juggling a tray whilst walking between tables and customers, I would have gone to the circus.
And no one gave offered us their names.
Despite all of that, we would visit again as the food was so good. As is so common in restaurants these days, the food saved the restaurant
