It was over priced for the small plates verses what you go on them. The fish and chips was very greasy with oil oozing out of the fish.

Absolutely lovely lunch, with delicious food (the tacos were a hit at our table) and friendly and attentive staff. Great options for gluten free, which was what we were looking for as one of our party has Coeliacs. All felt very safe, and loved my birthday brownie treat! We had our wee boy with us, who was getting quite fidgety, so staff made sure to try and bring out his food quicker so as to keep him amused. It’s family friendly, without feeling like a restaurant overrun with kids, which is great. Looking forward to our next visit.

Mid-morning Sunday breakfast. Server attentive but requests such as brown sauce or another drink were served slowly. Placing butter on top of warm toast is not a good idea as it becomes a greasy liquid, when some more was requested it never arrived.
Food quality good as is potion size but don't expect to nip in for a quick breakfast

Nice. Good food and nice atmosphere. But service was slow and in a 2 hr slot we were only offered drinks twice and after mains were cleared we were told we had half an hour left. Fair enough but no desserts, drinks or coffees were offered so we basically sat for half an hour at a bare table. It was a special occasion and we basically only ate or drank half of what we would have liked.

The food was good and the service was okay initially but we were automatically charged a service charge of 10% which we paid and noticed later. Thought this was optional for small bookings there was 3 of us. Thought it was a but cheeky.

The music levels were that of a young person's bar! There were a few elderly people dining and my own Father struggled to hear. Not enough staff around to give feedback to once our order had been taken.

I doubt we will go back I'm afraid.

Steak frites excellent but two things spoiled our evening -
Our first course was brought before our cocktails which we had wanted to enjoy pre dinner
Our main course was brought while we were still eating our starters.
That has never happened to us anywhere before and made us feel rushed. It spoiled the atmosphere of the meal and was not acceptable.

Food a bit disappointing .My 1st visit there and expected slightly higher end cuisine.
Celebrating a birthday but chose the wrong night as the Euro football final was being televised. The noise was overwhelming as we were eating inside. Ate our dessert out side so we could have a conversation.

I hope you can understand that this is not a reflection of a regular Sunday night at McLarens, and that spirits seemed to be particularly high that night due to the football final!

I booked a gondola at Mclarens on the Corner by emailing them separately to booking on Open Table. We had a fab time here and we felt that we could’ve happily stayed here! We will definitely be back for food next time. This visit was for drinks for my boyfriends birthday, the drinks were so good I recommend the garden mojito !! And then to finish, they brought out a brownie & ice cream with “happy birthday” free of charge for my boyfriend which was a lovely surprise. The staff were also lovely! Will definitely recommend this to others & will be back!!

My wife, child and myself had a great meal.

The staff were all very helpful and took time to acknowledge our wee boy's stories, and also they had children's cutlery which is a nice touch.

Food was excellent, service efficient, ambience was vibrant with spacious surroundings.

Highly recommend.
