    Don't like the new menu. Old favourites such as Veggie nachos and jalapeno Poppers are gone. And $40 for a steak? Ridiculous.

    Please someone get the manager to fix the speakers on the western wing of the pub. It's been more than 4 weeks. We only go there for trivia and we can't even hear it anymore. The food is terrible now, all that's left is trivia. Fix the sound please!

    Hi Begonia, Thanks for taking the time to leave us some feedback. We have logged a job last Tuesday, we are waiting on the repairs to be completed. Would you mind emailing us at with extra information about your meals so we can look into this further. Thanks

    The wait times are ridiculous now. Been living in the balgownie area for years. Half the table finished 30 mins before the other half got their food. This is the normal now on weekends.

    The reason I'm leaving a poor review is because they have a 2 week old new menu. And twice on the last 2 weeks, we have found that the same 3 items from the menu are unavailable. Very poor form to have a new menu and not be able to cater it REGULARLY.

    Good little pub. Food was decent. Comfortable setting. Good outdoor area/beer garden. Few good beers on tap and the prices weren’t astronomical

    Booked via The Fork and my table wasn’t even reserved.

    The pub was very busy and noisy and the were clearly not enough staff in the kitchen resulting in long waits for meals. Even worse, when I went to order, I was told my choice of meal was sold out so I ordered something else. After one hour wait for my dinner, I checked with the kitchen and my original choice was available after all. It was just the bar staff being too lazy to take my order or not aware of what was actually on offer. I love the Bally Pub and have been a patron for many years but since Covid it just seems to go from bad to worse when it comes to management.

    The menu and food is average. A poor selection and the quality is pretty bad. This place could be so much better.

    I go to the venue every Thursday and have been for the last 10 years (except for Covid). Lately, the food quality has gone down, the waits are longer and the bar staff newer and less experienced. Other than it being local and close to home, sadly, there's not much to recommend the pub for these days. I don't blame the staff, they work hard and try their best, but management is always changing and never to be seen. The downside of being owned by profit thirsty corporations and not caring about the community.

    A very busy night in the hotel but the kitchen was still able to deliver the food in an acceptable timeframe. Quality was great

    Standard pub fare, well executed and friendly service. Shame the old restaurant upstairs isn't reopened.
