Step in off the street, you are transported to another time & place. The decor is magical, the food is delicious and the staff are friendly & attentive. If you are a lover of scotch whiskey, you will think you have died and gone to heaven here, so many to choose from. The live music just topped off a great night out.

fantastic experience - would recommend to anyone - we had a couple of lovely waitresses + the food was delicious- I loved the chickpea salad that came with lamb cutlets and a simple but amazing dessert platter. the place was busy but service outstanding and we had a great night. Love the old world Scottish feel of this pub. would definitely go there again when on the GC.

I love the Scottish Prince. We had a great evening however went there particularly for a steak and ordered the Angus fillet with black pudding. The dish case out like a beef brisket and no black pudding. We checked the order and was reassured it was a steak. I still checked the online menu the day after. Pretty sure we got the wrong meal and if not they certainly need to update the umenu that you are not getting a steak. Other than that as always it’s a great way to unwind. Shame the food was a let down.

Hi guys, we feel absolutely terrible about this! Very embarrassing. We're not sure how it was unrecognizable as a steak! It's a Scotch Fillet not an Eye Fillet, but should still be clearly recognizable as a steak. The chef tenderises the fillet before cooking which we've discussed, and as we purchase an expensive cut of beef from the butcher, we've decided not to tenderise them anymore. There is really no need. Your next Scotch Fillet is on us with extra Black Pudding!

Great place, cosy nooks to sit in with a nice old pub style. Was not disappointed with the whisky selection and the food was great, staff were friendly and knowledgeable about the whiskies. Will definitely be back.

It's quite small, that's my only fault but we went for the live music which was so cool - the singers voice was such an old school blues vibe which we loved! The food was delectable and I could not fault any of it. The cocktails as well were perfect! It was quite loud because the space is quite small but not in a bad way just hard to hear each other but didn't kill our vibe :)

Haha thanks Rikki! That was Grant Carruthers playing I believe. He plays every Wednesday night. He's amazing! If you ever want a quiet nook for some quality conversation with friends just request a spot in the Shipyard. Much quieter in there ;-)

We had the tasting menu. The bread was stale and when we told the guy (Barman) he was extremely sarcastic. He actually lifted the bread from our plate and said he thought nothing was wrong with it. It was far from fresh white bread.

Friendly service, really enjoyed the atmosphere, good cocktails, food was delicious , would’ve liked to seeing a bit more follow-up after we ate, as in any further drinks or deserts or tea and coffee that sort of thing, if I was a business owner I’d want my staff to do that overall awesome experience . Loved it.

Amazing delicious food and attentive service. Very noisy however as we came in on the end of an all afternoon party so guests were still there. Would have been nice to be told that Although did book online. Great eclectic little mood lit joint can see guests lingering all night. Cocktails little expensive for size but drinks menu massive.

Had a fabulous meal, staff were excellent , loved the ambience, as soon as you opened the door, you knew you were on to a winner. The selection of whiskeys was amazing. The only down side was the music on a Tuesday night, was too loud, could not really talk, the musicians need to be aware that they are playing in a confined space. Overall a great night out & will be back.

Service was fantastic with staff knowledgeable about what they were serving. Will definitely dine there again, great place for dining with a group of friends or a couple.
