By far the bestpub in falkirk. Food always great and staff seem nice sportsbar upstairs and always good bands on at weekend.Only pub in town with any atmosphere my only quibble would be the drink pricesbut most bars are going that way anyway. Had barbacoa beef last week best thing ive had for ages , melt in your mouth and sauce was AMAZING.
I went there today and the food was awful,They will not be getting anymore of my hard earned cash,I agree with the bad reviews evidently the people who gave it more than 1 star just have not been out of Falkirk!!!
GET OUT MORE PEOPLE OF FALKIRK!!!!
and don’t put up wae this poor excuse for food
Go all the tim,e food is great been going regularly for 11 years. Kids love it too during the day and all the adults in my family love it during the night. in all that time I have only once had a complaint about the food, but I am sensible enough to realise that not everything can be perfect all of the time.
Not a bad place could of been much better staff didnt do check backs to see if my food was ok and didnt seem to care. I had to go to the bar to ask for my mains not good service but atleast the food was hot and fresh. The prices are reasonable great tasting food and the feel of the pub was warm and cozy upstairs.
Still the place to be in Falkirk….if you have your own castle.
Ridiculously priced drinks although the food is good and the atmosphere is generally favourable.
Usually plenty of space to walk about or stand without being jostled now that Sportsters and Witherspoons are alive and well (2009) which makes this place a wee bit better than before as it doesn’t try to compete with the happy hour mob.
Unfortunatley BtW management seem to think that this means it MUST be the most expensive bar in Central Region. Shame as it prices itself out of some good clientelle who will go to Gla or Edi instead for a night out.
It’s interesting to hear so many people talk about the rudeness of some of the staff there…
I have just been informed that I am not welcome back to BTW because I refused to pay for a dessert at a cost of £4.00! Apparently this is company policy, if you refuse to pay for something because you are dissatisfied, you are not welcome back if you do not pay for it.
Just had a call from the owner to confirm this.
The manager of the evening stated that I was obnoxious, rude and aggressive in my claims, I would disagree. Yet they employ many people (so it seems) with that attitude.
Obviously won’t be going back there again!!
The starter was £5.00 and was tiny.
The main was nice - £10ish so fair price I’d say.
The dessert, what I did eat of it, was terrible. Was £4.00, tiny, ice cream was more like ice than ice cream. Only ate half of it - stopped eating it when my friend found a hair in his meal.
Can’t understand why any business would treat their customers this way but each to their own.
Good to see Behind the Wall Busy again. it seemed to have lost a lot of custom to the warehouse that is sportsters and I for 1 am glad because for a while there was no atmosphere in town.
I was in on Saturday there and it was rammed full and it wasnt full of kids. Great music downstairs some old cheesy (in a good way)music through in the back area and the band upstairs were fantastic, there was some kind of festival going on like mardi gras with 2 for 1 on cocktails and beads being handed out.
Best night in ages
Welcome back Behind the Wall.
My fave thing about BTW is Eglesbrech Ale and Whisky Bar upstairs. This is a sports bar with TV’s and a large screen. It can get very busy when popular sporting events are on, my tip is to get there as soon as possible if you want a table.
The tables are refectory style upstairs and can seat a huge gang of mates comfortably.
There are alwyas guest ales on and they are always usually good quality and some are unusual.
BTW has a restaurant at the back, which I don’t use, I’ve been several times and it has a huge echoey noise to it, so if there’s lots of kids in, or just lots of people that sound is deafening and tinny.
When I first went I really enjoyed the Tex Mex menu often with a scottish twist, haggis chimichangas I think..or at least haggis something or other. Now I feel the menu is decidedly stale. The food is awlays good quality, well cooked and presented well, its just its the same food, I wish they would rotate their menu.
At least they have got rid of the old menu layout, it was incredibly confusing, I gave them a star just for that.
At the weekends the young and the restless come here to play, to be seen and heard. It gets busy and the bar can be hard to reach. I havent been in the evening since Sportsters opened but this place has bags of atmosphere that Sportsters doesnt (in my opinion)
There are often live bands on upstairs that are usually good entertainment and I think it has just got a late license to compete with the cold airplane hangar that is Sportsters.
i had not been in here for ages, then i was in her last friday. it used to be a really busy place on a friday night, but not last week. since sportsters opened up round the corner, thay have taken all the regulars from behind the wall. but last week, i came in for a meal and a few drinks. the meal was quite nice. i had dixy chicken and it was a bit too crispy for my. the meal was huge. then we noticed the a sign on the wall that said cocktails were 2 for 1 from 5 till 7pm, so we got 2 big jugs of “skittles” for 12 pounds, what a great deal, so about 6.50pm we got another couple. they are very tasty. it did get a bit busier later on, but nothing like it used too. they also had a private function on in the conservatory, which is where most of the seating is, so it was a bit limited. i’d definitely go back for a meal and a few drinks. it’s a shame it has lot so much of its atmosphere though.
