It is very old place tucked between houses, cozy, has a lot of character. Beer and fish and chips we ordered were good, nice and friendly personnel.

Popped in with my wife on a day out in Elgin. Place is tidy and clean. Bar staff like to play on tablets. Drinks are not cheap. Never ordered food so can’t comment on that. Bit too trendy for us oldies

Place full of character with outside benches if the weather is good. Good beer. Food good but slightly overpriced.

Had a party of four. Ordered drinks and lunch around 2:00 pm. Finally ate at 3:00. The food we received was very good, no complaints there. If you are strapped for time pick another restaurant

This spot is a dependable, good value, well done place. Living local, it's a great place to take visitors, friends, family. Food is always a step above what you kind find elsewhere in Elgin (although you did take the fish tacos off the menu.....nooo!) Throughly...More
