  1. Amazing experience, but expensive

    Amazing experience, cannot recommend enough, especially for couples! The food is soo good and the staff are very friendly. £40 Booking fee is very expensive however, especially for a 4pm booking. But it was worth it for a one off experience

  2. Excellent Dinner Experience!

    Staff pleasant , dome was lovely , my daughter loved it . Food was lovely although my turkey slightly dry but still enjoyed our dinner , thx yous

  3. Festive Menu Delightful, Service Needs Improvement

    The dome dining experience itself was cosy and the atmosphere was great. The food from the festive menu was amazing, no complaints here. The service was very slow and a lot of our requests were missed.

  4. We had a Globe booked for a party of
    6. They look so festive. The service was amazing can’t really comment on
    any of the staff as we were served by 4 different team members. There was no
    soup left so I couldn’t have a starter but they did bring bread out which I
    ate. Couldn’t have the Turkey as they cooked it with the stuffing which
    contained nuts so that was a bit of a let down. Everyone else had Turkey and
    said it was delicious. We would definitely book again

  5. Great Food & Excellent Service

    Excellent service, great food & thedomes are lovely, well lit & nice touches such as blankets, certabook again,
    thanks.

  6. Excellent 21st Celebration

    Everything was great for my
    daughters 21st, especially getting an extra cosmopolitan!
    Thanks for letting us bring our own cake and delivering to the dome. Shout
    out to your manager for being super helpful when we were there and on the
    phone, from one Falkirk Bairn to another! Well done!

  7. Birthday Dome

    4 of us spent a Saturday evening for
    a special birthday. The dome was lovely clean and warm, and played our own
    tunes on the speaker.
    One of the starter orders was wrong and had to be changed, I asked for bread
    with mine but didn’t receive it, we were told we would get the dome until
    closing time but then the same server told us an hour later to rush last
    order of drinks as needed to be out soon. Ordered a bottle of wine that had
    run out so received a more expensive bottle, then the bill had the starter
    that was wrong and the bottle of wine not received on it which we had to ask
    to be removed.
    Food was ok but not special
    Overall nice for a special occasion and treat to have your own space.

  8. Excellent service - Good food with a few minor issues

    We hired dome for drinks and
    starters. Excellent service from our very friendly male server(can’t
    remember his name). It worked very well for our party of 10 it would have
    been nice to have dinner but it was just too tight. We had dinner in the snug
    area of the restaurant which was very nice food on the whole was very good
    the steak pie was just a bit tough but everything else was good.

  9. Mixed experience

    The food was good and the ambience
    in the dome was lovely. The vibe inside the dome was the best part of my
    visit.
    However, the service was a bit disappointing. We weren’t seated in the dome
    until 15 – 20 minutes after the reservation time, left waiting at the bar
    which ate into our time in the dome. Waited an hour for main meals, again the
    food was good but I’m not sure if it was worth the wait.
    I would give the domes a second try in the future to give service a chance to
    improve.

  10. Perfection!

    I was very pleased with our birthday
    dinner for my granddaughter. The whole family thought the beautifully
    lit,very warm dome was perfect and all our food was excellent.

  11. 1st class experience

    We hired a dome for our 30th Wedding Anniversary meal with friends on Saturday 21st October. What a great experience. Setting, food and service was amazing. We have Amy as our waiting staff and she was incredible. Lovely manner, nothing we asked was an issue and service was on point. Would definately reccommend.

  12. Very nice ambiance, warm & welcoming
    . But food was very average .

  13. Successful 70th Celebration

    Hired a dome for my dads 70th
    Was able to decorate the inside of the dome , the food was incredible. Staff
    were so friendly . Couldn’t fault it at all will defo be back

  14. Delightful and Worth it!

    The dome was a really lovely way to celebrate our Anniversary. It’s not the cheapest to hire if there’s only 2 using it but worth it for special occasions. The food was absolutely beautiful an the service was fantastic. Will definitely be back

  15. Highly recommend

    We had the best time dining in a Dome for my husbands 50th. We loved the experience and the food was perfect. Would absolutely do it again.

  16. Delightful

    We arrived early and the staff was still setting up. We were made very welcomed and asked to take a seat in the bar area. They offered whatever we wanted to drink. Once the dome was ready, we were then moved to the dome. The staff were very attentive and we have only knocked off 1 star because the call button did not work. The food was fantastic and drinks were reasonable. The margaritas were very refreshing and our entire group of 6 people really enjoyed the experience In the dome with own Bluetooth speaker and lights.

  17. Excellent food as usual. The outside domes give a more relaxed, private and personal dining experience. The staff are very helpful and polite. Look forward to our next visit.

  18. Outstanding Service!

    Fantastic experience for my husbands 50th birthday. Amy our
    server was amazing and so attentive to our needs.

  19. 10/10

    Hired 2 domes for my daughters 40th , absolute amazing
    experience, everyone loved it , will definitely be back 10/10

  20. 5⭐️ review

    to all who want to book somewhere that has dining pods or domes I definitely
    recommend GWR the staff are amazing and the menus have such a great selection for everyone

    ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

  21. We visited for my eldest 18th birthday. I was so glad I chose this place for such a special occasion. The dome was magical. The food was fantastic and the staff were so helpful, friendly and really went out their way to make it special. Would recommend anyone to visit. Thanks for making my daughters birthday special.

  22. Perfect Night

    An absolutely amazing night nothing but good to say would 110% recommend this place to everyone, Mel was the best went above and beyond for us and made it the perfect night.

  23. Outstanding !

    I came here for valentines set menu,
    The place, the staff and the food was sensational!
    Very helpful, warm, on call buzzer, own music for Bluetooth speaker, cocktails were great too
    Defo will be back felt so special
    Love Dawn moir & David Jess

  24. First time dining in this restaurant and booking out one of the
    domes. The staff were lovely and very attentive. Me and my boyfriend had the
    mixed grill and it was cooked beautifully, with some cocktails to finish.
    Would highly recommend to anyone and will be back!

  25. The second time we’ve dined here, just as good as the first. Love the ‘dome’ concept, good food and fantastic service. We’ll be back.

  26. We had a table booked for a 40th Birthday in the outside domes last night and it was an incredible experience. Everything went smoothly from start to finish, food and drink was thoroughly enjoyed by all. We would like to point out the service in particular which was exemplary. We were served by the lovely Agnes who was very friendly, efficient and went above and beyond to ensure we had the best possible experience. All other staff we came into contact were fantastic too. It is for this reason mainly that we will 100% return. Thank you!

  27. Had a really lovely night something a bit different, food was
    lovely just 1 very small complaint there was a slight smell , maybe add in a
    we diffuser , but we will definitely be returning and have recommended it to
    all my friends look forward to our next visit

  28. Lovely Experience

    My partner booked this for my birthday.
    The experience was unique and lovely and I really enjoyed our time in the dome.
    My only two complaints were that although it states in the information that each booking will be dealt with individually and someone would be in touch, there was no contact made at any point. This was for my last birthday in my 30s so a little theming would have been appreciated and made it even more special. My partner had booked this as a surprise and he had unfortunately missed this detail. The domes are nicely decorated anyway but some personal extra touches would have really added to the occasion.
    Also we were a little disappointed that it was only the festive menu. I had made choices from the main A La Carte menu in advance of our arrival and the festive menu was very limited in comparison and we both ended up choosing dishes we were not overly excited about. That said, the food was lovely.
    Also we had a lovely waiter looking after us. I’m awful with names but he was from Italy and he was great.
    If someone was looking to book this experience I would definitely recommend to them. It was still a lovely experience and we made the most of our time there.
    It is unlikely to be an experience I would personally repeat, but this is more down to the costs involved and I feel once was enough.

  29. taff great. Food great and experience great.

  30. We had a great server who made our birthday lunch special. Many Thanks

  31. I don’t usually leave reviews for restaurants however I feel it’s necessary , we went for my boyfriends birthday and I was a bit hesitant to get a steak with it not being a steak restaurant but honestly myself, my bf & his dad all got steaks and we haven’t stopped speaking about how amazing it was, my bf mum got the pasta and ordered side of Mac n cheese and the Mac and cheese was the best Mac and cheese I’ve ever tasted, we live south lanarkshire and it’s about 30 mins for us to get there but we all said today we 100% will be back!

  32. Had 2 Domes booked for afternoon tea as a celebration for my sisters 50th birthday. Everything was fabulous, can’t recommend enough. Visitors from Belfast were with us and loved it!

  33. Highly recommended!

    Booked a dome for my best friend’s birthday. Would highly recommend this place. Amazing staff- Thankyou Elana, Danny and Sammy for
    being so helpful and so pleasant. Absolutely made our day with the great service!
    Excellent food!
    6 stars!!

  34. We had a ball at your dome it was unusual in a nice way. Service
    was great and your staff made us welcome and there attention to us was above and beyond thank you

  35. Great value for money

    Dome was very cosy and had a lovely atmosphere. It was also easy
    to operate the electricals inside ie. Heater and Bluetooth Speaker. The food
    was incredible. The service from the staff was amazing especially Sami and Alessio.

  36. We came to celebrate my husbands birthday. Our two young children came along and both loved the dome. David and the team were all wonderful at explaining how everything worked in the dome and always being on hand if we needed anything. We really enjoyed the different way to dine and found it lots of fun. The food was brilliant and portions really generous even the kids menu. Everything was spotless in the dome, beautiful cushions and blankets were provided to use if required however we found with the dyson heaters the dome became very cosy very quickly. Thanks for a wonderful meal and beautiful setting!

  37. Amazing experience

    Went here on my leaving night from work. The staff were so lovely, they went above and beyond for us. Pod was amazing, came with fan, heater, blankets charger and speaker. The food was delicious best steak I’ve ever had 😋

  38. Amazing

    Amazing experience, staff were so lovely and helpful you’re made to feel so welcome and at home, food was 10/10. Would 100% go back, perfect for a special occasion.

  39. Fabulous

    An enjoyable unique experience in one of the pods for my daughters 21st Birthday, before going onto seeing Coldplay. There was one little niggle and that was my daughters steak wasn’t cooked how she liked it, however once we pointed it out it was soon rectified and overall had a fabulous meal. Thankyou David and all the staff.

  40. Pod dining was new to us- really private and great if you just
    want some time out . Very comfortable, we were really well looked after,
    David was the perfect host. Really lovely dining experience- food was lovely-
    well presented and quality ingredients- for something different I would
    recommend the Burrata.

  41. Amazing food amazing staff

    David the owner went all out for us so welcoming and friendly we have been a lot of places for dinner and this was 10/10 food and service will be back
