The food, service and atmosphere in The auld sheebeen can not normally be faulted.
Have visited many times and enjoyed various dishes from their food menu and sampled a few of their lovely cocktails.

Both portions of chips at our table had lot of salt, which we don’t eat, sent back one but we’re on bill at end of night‼️I asked them to be taken off.
Sent back 1 pint Guinness that had been sitting too long before delivered to our table, flat.
I’ve been few times now so menu very limited, need more variety, but a nice evening out otherwise😃
