Venue - easy to get too and parking. Can be busy but equally can be quiet. Depending on what you like you can choose when you go. Clean and tidy. Food- standard pub food but usually very tasty and on the occasion we have had to make comment it has been addressed swiftly and it hasn't affected our experience. Portions... More

Had a family meal at Caledonian while visiting my daughter in Scotland. The meals were very average and cheap. A lot of the tables still had plates and glasses left on them from previous customers. When I looked on the floor there where prawns under the table, but what was worse was someone had broken a glass and 5 minutes... More

Was passing, and having lived here some years ago, nipped in to see how things have changed. Whole layout has been improved, but, character has been ripped out with the old furniture, I'm afraid. Anyway, decided to have a bar lunch, so, decided to have good old fish and chips, which was fine, but, no more than that. Reasonably priced,... More

Just a typical pub menu that is ok and the prices are reasonable. Last time we went though we had to pop along to agenda as there is only 3 baby chairs in the whole place that were getting used. A place this size should have more

Hi there, sorry to hear that there were not enough highchairs available for you at that time. We do currently have 5 Highchairs on site, which may have been used in other part of the hotel. If you do require one on your next visit, just call ahead to reserve a table with a highchair. Hopefully we will see you... More

Never been to this place once and had decent meal. Food is pre proportioned and often microwaved (staff have told me this) have had meals deducted from bill after justifying complaints. Would not recommend

We stopped in for lunch recently. There was five of us and not a single complaint. The food was lovely and the service was great. Our waitress was very pleasant and although working nonstop found enough time to give us a wonderful dining experience. 10/10 we will be back

First of all we were told there was no macaroni which was fine we all ordered burgers instead, however I stood at the till and was ignored by the manager not even a 'hello I'll be with you in a minute'.
