About the Pub
  Great food, good beer, super views over the Firth of Forth to the Kingdom of Fife and friendly service make this 'the' place for a pleasant meal or just a drink. If you can grab one of the few tables in the window overlooking the water then you are really lucky. The main bar room is quite small but there is another seating area up some stairs and also a conservatory where children are allowed. Food is displayed on a blackboard and I can highly recommend the traditional Lamb Stew at 5.50 (regular plate), 6.50 (large).

Food and service diabolical
This is a real shame as the pub is in one the pest locations for a sunday lunch.. bar staff and food service arrogant and make customers feel not wanted while they chatter to each other.. but food is simply AWFUL - they serve whatever they can get away with.. and if you complain they make out the customers is at fault... i cannot emphasise enough what a complete let down this place is.

It was our 1st visit to the old chain pier and first impressions were that it was well laid out and decorated, nice views etc however it went down hill from there. Stood for a while before I then had to ask where to sit and had to ask for menus.

We were very surprised at how tiny the portions were and food very average once it finally came. I would recommend for drinks only!!

A shame about the food
Bad food
A nice view but the chefs obviously do not care about the food they serve. Go for drinks only and eat somewhere else.

unsatisfied customer
service of no standard
waiters don't have a clue. took plates away while people will still eating - extra butter was thrown onto the table. asked to order a dessert, received the menu but the waiter never came back to ask if we'd like to order. not recommended for large groups. pie with veg - no veg to be seen only a few salad leaves. pity. they have an awful lot to learn.

The Salmon sizzler with the chili sauce is fantastic.

Now reopened
The pub reopened in mid November under new ownership but with the original chef so it is more of the same.

Ashes to ashes! Burnt doon!
Ah well, done to a cinder - not the lamb Davy had on in the kitchen, but the pub in entirety!

Burnt doon! The landlord's ego was saved though!
