Excellent food,service,friendly and welcoming staff.Easy to book and pre order.Only reason I scored the ambiance lower was no fault of the staff or premises.Due to current situation it was not busy.I imagine in normal circumstances it would be a fabulous fun place to spend an evening.We look forward to going back.

From the moment we arrived and were directed to our table you could tell this was going to be good. The smells were amazing and the owner so enthusiastic about their food. And we were not disappointed!! The food was amazing, so delicious, tender and with so much flavour. The highlights were the Rib Tips, bite sized explosions of taste and the Brisket which was so well cooked with amazing flavours! We will be back and soon ☺️

Meat Monsters have the best slow cooked smoked pork ribs in Scotland, possibly the world. Relaxed and informal atmosphere - lots and lots of meat. Left there VERY full, and VERY happy. Also try their Mac n Cheese.

Really felt safe eating out, great there’s lots of space. Marked down ambiance but that’s COVID-19 fault rather than MM. Food was delicious a real treat and pre-ordering meant that we didn’t wait long at all. Thank you!

Wonderful first time at Meat Monsters. Considering it was their first evening open since lockdown, thus meaning that their were limited tables. The atmosphere was still good! The food was exceptional and I cannot wait to return to have the ribs again!

I was amazed by how lovely the restaurant was! I really liked the fact it’s not only about a good meal and a love of meat but a love of the environment too. The staff made sure we were happy and couldn’t have been more kind to us. I was pleased there were quite a few vegetarian options and the macaroni cheese was the best I’ve ever had! The only drawback for me was I feel that the pricing is a little too high for the portion sizes. I also think there should be an option to buy a big rack of ribs for the table as we are all rib lovers! Otherwise we had a great time and definitely recommend a visit for a tasty well prepared meal.
