About The Drake
Linda Bendall - 02/10/2015
Was made to feel so welcome from
The minute we walked in the door by genuinely friendly staff. Service was prompt and faultless. Loved that our dog was made just as welcome as we were. Food is very good and I loved the super food salad. Best salad ever - jam
Packed full of flavour and a good hearty portion! The sticky toffee pud is in a class of its own! The ambience is just lovely - laid back and comfy with lots of fellow dog lovers to add to the camaraderie ! All in all, a wee haven after a hectic day! Not as grand as some establishments I've been to but wins hands down on atmosphere!

Even though I screwed up the date of the booking, the staff were very easy going and helpful. Great place for a works night out - cracking drinks list and tasty food.
