Scran & Scallie Restaurant Diner Reviews
"VERY slow service this time - and the place wasn't particularly busy. Although the food is fine, I'm getting a bit bored with the lack of variety. And everyone in my party was taken aback by the shameless mark-up on the wine."
"Once the season opens, this is the place to go. It's more than a gastropub but with its unpretentious atmosphere and friendly service it's less than fine dining: the perfect place to chew at the legs of a grouse. Its popularity should stress the staff yet they seem to manage us all brilliantly. The wines tend to the expensive so that you have to settle for less than the perfect match for the bird."
