A Scottish Bar & Bistro run by Ricky, Linda, Alistair and Pam.
There is entertainment every Saturday night with Ewan who sings songs from the 50s to the present day.
Resident chef is Pam and the house specialities are Lamb cooked to a traditional Spanish recipe and on a Sunday, Aberdeen Angus steak pie. The homemade soups should not be missed and the double cream custard is to die for. Pam is probably the most colourful chef in the centre, no boring whites for this lady who is a true eccentric. Tennents lager is available on draught and both kinds of Irn Bru. You don't have to dine if you only want a drink. Everyone is welcome.
Open Monday to Saturday from 6 p.m. until Late and on Sunday from 1 p.m. until Late.
