About The Bothy Restaurant & Drinkery
Lovely meal for Mother’s Day and at a very good price. Quite a lengthy wait between ordering and being served (50 mins) but enjoyed the lunch when it arrived. Salmon was particularly good and my family said the roast beef, and the roast chicken were also very tasty.
Good but no discount initially!
We had a lovely meal at The Bothy. Lovely staff nice atmosphere and the guitarist played music to our liking. The only problem was the bill was not discounted as per the 5pm deal. Luckily I kept the email on my phone but still I felt embarrassed being scrutinised by two staff. They were nice about it but this shouldn’t happen. Our table was reserved so they knew we were booked.
We would go back but next if I had a discount I would print a copy.
The only other comment is that drinks are quite expensive.
