Restaurant
“A neighbourhood favourite, the staff are always friendly, the food fantastic and the wine list well thought out. Whether pooping in for a quick pre-theatre menu or looking to while away an evening the Apiary has got you covered. If you’re pushed for time in the evenings, they do a spectacular brunch, with haggis often featuring on the menu.”
