Group of 12 of us. Just asked for a random selection. Had some lovely dishes. Highlights for me were the pork cheek and the lamb casserole. Attentive service. Highly recommended.

Beautiful decor, friendly staff and amazing food. Took a trip down to Helensburgh by train and found this restaurant along the seafront. Well worth a visit. I would highly recommend it.

Easy to see why this establishment has won so many awards. Attentive staff, can tell the produce they use is fresh & so much choice! My wife and I try different dishes each time we go...can not recommend this place highly enough!
