We happened upon this restaurant, now called The Bengal, on its first night under new management. The service was excellent, as was the food. The choice of main dishes was extensive and very well explained by our waiter, and the poppadoms that we always have as our starters when eating at Indian restaraunts were accompanied by a more varied choice...

The Swan is gone and the Bengal is here and long overdue. Enjoyed our first dining experience an hour ago and it was superb. Long may this continue. Go and give it a try but please don't get in the queue before me. AD

We ate there last night. The food was still generally good and the service was good. However a couple of things worthy of commenting... More

Having enjoyed a meal at The Stag, Brechin, we were pleased to discover that we had an allied restaurant nearer to home. Tried it out with a carry-out and very pleased with the food. When ordering, we were told that "the card machine isn't working, cash required" - OK. We then booked a table for five and enjoyed a good... More

Our table was booked 2 weeks in advance, got there at 7.55pm and they didn't have a table for us. They did set one up. The service is very slow and they seemed to be short staffed. Our drinks order was taken and 3 people got theirs while the rest of us had to wait for some time. Eventually they... More
