As a family of 6, we tried the fillet steaks and guinea fowl dishes which were both delicious. The children ate the pizza, which was slightly overdone and the spaghetti which was lovely.
Desserts were enjoyed by all of us.

    My first visit to your establishment, the purpose my daughters birthday and also my granddaughters first experience of afternoon tea. Apart from a small wait on arrival as staff were in some sort of discussion in what I thought was the bar area and although seen us waiting chose to continue there discussion, everything else was fine.

    The afternoon tea itself was lovely, but the staff were invisbile and we had to go and hunt for some to refill the teapot and when we were ready to pay.

    Very disappointed when we got there to discover we weren't in the Pentland restaurant but were in what was basically the entrance corridor to the restaurant. Hardly the atmosphere we were looking for. A waiter then came over to ask if we wanted tea or coffee with our afternoon tea. I asked if it was simply basic tea or basic coffee and he said there were different kinds but didn't know what they were. I asked if we could see a menu so he went and got one (yes just one between 4 of us). Not sure why we weren't given one in the first place as there was a good choice. We said one person couldn't eat smoked salmon so they didn't give anyone smoked salmon. They said we'd have tea top ups but were then never offered one. The scones were dry and thin. The cakes were nice but quite boring. Other places I've been for afternoon tea give you more sandwiches if you want them but here we were going to be charged £3. Every time a waiter came to our table it was someone different and they were all rather miserable. They only had one tea strainer that we had to share. They ran out of the nice tea pots. After we'd finished we were left for ages with no service. I had to go looking for a member of staff to ask if we could move to the lounge area for a drink. Then they took 15 minutes to come and take our drinks order. Overall I found the experience to be very basic, over priced and disappointing for what I thought was a high end hotel. I will not go back and I would not recommend to a friend

    Good points = venue was lovely. Erin our waitress was very nice & friendly.
    Bad points = Tea was served far too early, cold by time food arrived! Very poor selection of cakes/sweet treats. All of similar look/taste. Looked very dull & boring on plate. No variety of type, nothing eye catching or inviting!!! Sandwiches were just ok!

    Very good service and the high quality of food gave us a great experience. Only very minor complaint is that the air conditioning came on and as the vent was directly above me and it took a while to switch off, got a slight draught. But got to understand that in an old building.

    My wife, daughter and myself had an excellent experience in the Pentland. The food was first class. As good as you could get in any fine dining restaurant. The Presentation was amazing and the taste and flavours were exceptional. The choice was great. We could have chosen anything from the menu. The service was excellent and we were so impressed with all the waiting staff.They were pleasant, helpful and knowledgeable.

    Had a fantastic meal, the staff were very attentive despite being busy, very friendly and polite.
    The lamb main dish and beef were both delicious and hot on arrival, a bit of a thing with myself . Chocolate dessert also
    exceptional. Overall very good value for money for where we were and the ambiance perfect.

    Four of us had booked for afternoon tea in the Pentland. As there was some function on we were shown to a smaller lounge room where our table was set up and VERY comfy chairs. Selection on the cakestand was perfect and we were topped up numerous times with tea/coffee. Finished off with a bottle of prosecco and only then checked the time. We had been sitting chatting and grazing for 4 and a half hours!
