We had dinner here one evening when my mum was visiting. I asked for macaroni cheese with chips instead of the garlic bread it comes with as standard. This duly arrived as requested and was nice enough, although there were only about 6 chips in a small metal container. But when the bill arrived we had been charged over £2... More

During a visit to Costco the wife's belly started rumbling and needed feeding. Just around the corner was the Sheperd's Rest where this need was satisfied. Decent food at a reasonable price but nothing to write home about

The only fault we found was the ravioli which is new to menu is a very small portion. More like a starter. Staff are aware of this issue & have passed on comments... More

Had a meal with the boyfriends family, have been loads of times before and had been good but this time my Balamoral chicken was miniscule, hardly any on the plate, was all chips. Haggis was very tasty though. Boyfriend didn't really enjoy his food as his half a chicken was dry. Didn't want to make a fuss but maybe should... More
