                                                        Was recommended by a friend so thought we would make a breakfast trip while heading from Perth to Livingston. So glad we booked as was super busy - great menu which is a little bit different to a traditional breakfast menu! Service was really friendly, good atmosphere and overall great dining experience. Beautiful views of all 3 bridges and plenty of parking. We will definitely be back and will and try get to the hatch in Edinburgh centre too 👍 ⭐️

                                                        Second visit for a reason...superb food pure and simple. Park the car in the adjacent car park for free (first hour free anyway) with the restaurant validating your car. Milk shake crazy good (and I'm sixty two). Friend from East Sussex blown away by quality. We NEVER stay for a tea/coffee at restaurants...we did there.

                                                        As always food was delicious and service was very efficient from friendly staff. Only grumble is cost of cup of tea (cup of hot water with teabag) rather excessive and in line with price of latte or cappuccino.

                                                        I think i just expected more with all the good reviews i heard about the place, the size and the location was a surprise and no toilets was a shock. The burgers were awesome but the price of chips was also a shock! I would recommend it to my friends but i would have to let them know about the down sides, so im not sure they would travel to go there as we travelled down from Arbroath to eat there. And no beer??

                                                        I love DTH and have been many times. This time unfortunately it seemed like they were a bit swamped on a skillet deal bank holiday. Skillets were a little cool - not cool enough to complain about, mind, but just not as piping hot and delicious as I've had before. It was blimmin' freezing out and initially one younger guy told us we couldn't move to sit under a heater even though we were with a tiny baby - luckily the manager (I assume - she's great) sorted that out no problem.

They took great care over food allergies which was great as I’ve just found out I’m gluten intolerant. Overall really good and will definitely be back.

                                                        Lovely vibe for Sunday brunch, relaxed environment, with very friendly service. Breakfast menu limited on lighter options. Grilled cheese/bacon/egg sandwich was yum, pancakes could have done with some fruit to make them exciting.

                                                        Service was quick. Decent location. Would have expected a side to be included with the burgers due to the price. Overall food quality very good. Nice to see traditional/varied options available.

                                                        Worst place we have eaten in a while. Was so disappointed after reading reviews. Won’t return as plenty good places to eat.

                                                        Another great breakfast although the potatoes were slightly under this time. Yep love the Mexican skillet yummy. Got the 2 skillet deal at £25 which was a bargain. If you haven’t been before, you won’t be disappointed 😍
