Frank Finger Reviewed 4th July 2015 11:35 AM
- Food was fairly poor quality. Bit of fish was like rubber
Elspeth Badger Reviewed 21st April 2015 6:34 PM
- My first visit in here for months yesterday and the place was empty. Served a warm Budweiser. Extremely poor
B.Assombalonga Reviewed 20th December 2014 5:13 PM

Amanda Phillips Reviewed 6th October 2014 4:08 PM

Caractacus Potts Reviewed 2nd September 2014 6:22 PM
- I can often be seen in here drinking a shandy whilst challenging people to debate me whilst shouting over them.
Alex Salmond Reviewed 31st August 2014 6:51 PM
- I believe this place is soon to close down and by the comments listed it's no wonder. I hope when it reopens they find some staff who are actually willing to work
Kevin Webster Reviewed 8th August 2014 8:16 PM
- Went in during a World Cup game and was told "no colours" my crime was wearing a red top. I don't even like football!
Tom Cakebread Reviewed 22nd June 2014 6:41 PM
- I found the bar service to be very poor. A long wait as not enough staff manning the bar. Some shifty characters lurking around getting upto skulduggery
Tom Cakebread Reviewed 22nd June 2014 11:11 AM
- I was in here the other evening and the going got tough, so I got going.
B.Ocean Reviewed 12th June 2014 3:35 PM
- I've never been so scared in my life when drinking in there. Jeepers creepers I won't be back
Chris Jewell Reviewed 9th June 2014 6:33 PM
- A pub that's appealing as sitting in a puddle with a can of super. Had more fun on the toilet.
Stewart Murdoch Reviewed 7th June 2014 7:01 PM
- In for lunch and had some dark haired drunk woman slurring and shouting as people tried to enjoy themselves. Pretty poor.
Trisha McParlane Reviewed 6th June 2014 3:34 PM
- Poor disabled access. My wife nearly toppled out her wheelchair encountering a tight angled corner. This needs addressed
Finlay Quaye Reviewed 26th May 2014 4:26 PM
- I preferred this place when it was called "The Yard". Friendlier staff and no troublemakers back then.
Robert Warmisham Reviewed 24th May 2014 11:05 AM
- The toilets are a disgrace.
David Blair Reviewed 23rd May 2014 8:00 AM
- Very poor. Manager/Assistant manager was a young man who wanted a carry on more than to ensure good service. My hubby remarked, "I wish I was barred so I could never come back!" I replied not to worry, we won't be.
Patricia McDermid Reviewed 23rd May 2014 7:59 AM
- I went in finished work in tesco and it not very good. Lol
Baham Groag (Glenburn) Reviewed 21st May 2014 9:26 PM
- Enjoyed my favourite here today, again cooked to perfection. Boiled ham, cabbage and potatoes. Yummmmm
R.Sole - Port Glasgow Reviewed 19th May 2014 3:41 PM
- Turned away today having just attended our nieces christening. Reason given was "christening parties often escalate into trouble". There were four of us all aged over 45. Pathetic
Bill Clay Reviewed 18th May 2014 7:39 PM
- I run a local greasy spoon and pop in here for the occasional pint. Ok during the day but wouldn't go near it at night. Dodgy
Chris Jewell Reviewed 13th May 2014 9:20 AM
- Horrendous food, service and atmosphere. Avoid
Bryan McKellar Reviewed 11th May 2014 5:27 PM
- Not a particularly pleasant experience
Kieron Beaglehole Reviewed 8th May 2014 5:22 PM
- Just poor. Tacky and there's a sour atmosphere.
Janet Findus Reviewed 6th May 2014 2:50 PM
- Sleazy, seedy, vulgar. That's the type of man that visits here. Was out for a birthday party and have never felt so out of place. We drank up and went somewhere classier. Won't be returning and neither will the other girls.
Julie Swift Reviewed 2nd May 2014 7:46 PM
- Witnessed fisticuffs on my first visit here. Won't be back
Don Beech Reviewed 30th April 2014 11:17 AM
- Food was of good quality but staff spent most of their time clock watching and seemed disinterested. Below what I'd expected.
Douglas Shambach Reviewed 19th April 2014 1:58 PM
- Was in with my boyfriend and after some sub-par service we left as we are both huge Everton fans and the "sports bar" refused to turn on the volume. Won't be back.
Tracy Anderson Reviewed 30th March 2014 4:43 PM
- A pub advertising showing all live football but refusing to allow the volume on "because it's Mother's Day"?? Do me a favour. Plenty of other locals showing live games for full enjoyment!
Leonard Jeffries Reviewed 30th March 2014 4:34 PM
- Stood waiting for 10 mins on a quiet night whilst staff talked amongst themselves. Very poor. Walked out and won't be back.
Kirsty Shorley Reviewed 19th March 2014 2:16 PM
- This place appears to be going steadily downhill. Unpleasant characters hanging around in drunken states and staff who couldn't care less. The assistant manager chap is a jumped up jerk
Cyril Sneer Reviewed 18th March 2014 9:35 PM
- Worst bar in town by FAR!
Pamela Boag Reviewed 12th March 2014 10:31 AM
- Dire. Jukebox tunes changed without notice and waited ages for a pint. I was not happy. Also known trouble makers who have been known to throw glasses are regularly spotted there. AVOID!!!!
Michael Nail Reviewed 3rd March 2014 5:40 PM
- Not a bad burger but have tried to get in with a suit to be told I was "at a Christening" and as a result couldn't be served. Despite the fact my wife and I had just put our Sunday best on. The barman/manager appeared to take great delight in informing us we were at this fictitious event. Won't be back despite spending lots of money with friends on previous occasions. Lost a good dozen customers now.
Andy Love Reviewed 27th February 2014 1:55 PM
- Waited ages to get served and finally got served by a miserable character called "Dom". He was too busy watching the football and having a laugh with his friends. Shocking.
Ronnie McKellar Reviewed 26th February 2014 8:35 AM
- In with my husband and found it to be full of louts and troublemakers. Staff rude and manager seemed to not care.
Irene Watt Reviewed 17th February 2014 2:36 PM
- As a business owner I find this establishment to be of very poor quality. Staffed by uninterested workers and catering to the lowest denominator.
James Easdale Reviewed 16th February 2014 10:16 AM
- Went in for a few quiet drinks and felt intimidated in a pub with a bad atmosphere and rude staff. Won't be back again and will be warning friends, colleagues and family of this place.
Susan Barker Reviewed 16th February 2014 10:07 AM
- Staff were rude and the manager seemed not to care. Won't be back due to an uncomfortable presence of some regular troublemakers!
