    When we arrived it was very strange with the new restrictions but overall very good we opted for the menu online but already knew what we wanted everything was great until the dessert we pre ordered the suffle as we know it takes 20 minutes to make after what seemed to be a long time a head waiter came to tell us they were having some sort of difficulties and dessert would be another 15 minutes when it eventually came it was very disappointing we have had this dish on every visit and this did not resemble what we had eaten in the past I commented to my wife if this was the first time it would be the last however this will not deter us from returning as the food is the best in town ??????

    When arriving to the hotel we were sent into the wrong lounge which led to a very awkward stand off when we couldn’t find our other guest, once in the restaurant it was very quiet, no back ground music was being played. We were stayed near the window on the right. We had chosen to have the 6 course taster menu. This was lovely, wasn’t to keen on the game terrine, it was too over powering and the brioche seemed stale. Other than that the rest of the meal was great.. it wouldn’t be a regular place to eat but seeing as it was the first trip up to see my family of 2020 we needed a nice treat!!

    My husband and I ate at the restaurant recently. It was simple to book and we were warmly welcomed by staff and they attended to us excellently throughout our visit. The ambience of the restaurant was lovely and relaxed. The food was beyond fantastic! We had the halibut and angus beef both of which were absolutely beautiful! Could not recommend enough and we will definitely be back!

    The setting and service was excellent and we thoroughly enjoyed our meal. The only criticism I have being a foodie, is that every dish was beautiful but when it came to dessert and especially after having 4 courses already, it was two sickly desserts. One apple and custard then a heavy chocolate which I thought had too much chocolate going on and was very rich. I’ve always found a lighter dessert at the end of a tasting menu much more enjoyable such as strawberry / meringue / sorbet etc. I was unable to finish the chocolate dessert because of it being too heavy after the pre dessert.

    Loved every bit! Chocolate dessert was outstanding. Slightly disappointed to not receive scallops but the replacement lemon sole was delicious. Staff were entertaining and professional. Will definitely return.

    A birthday treat which had been put on hold because of COVID and our meal didn’t disappoint As we have come to expect we were warmly welcomed by staff who clearly care about their customers well being and ensure a positive dining experience, taking the time to explain the composition of each course and the accompanying beer without being obtrusive. We chose the 6 course tasting menu with paired beers which we were dubious about.... they worked!!! Food was a delight, all tantalising and unique in presentation sending the tastebuds into overdrive To single one course out would be unfair and impossible as each was special in its own right but Rocks and Moss dessert with Ola Dubh dark ale was a brilliant end to a fine dining experience Confirmation for us once more as to why this restaurant is our go to for special occasions or when we just need a treat. Nearly forgot - for martini lovers, the Scottish Martini was a fitting aperitif

    We visited the restaurant for my husband’s birthday with our two sons (12 & 14). We have been before and thoroughly enjoyed it, and we did again on this visit. The menus is a little different, but still has great choices - just less “extras” to choose from e.g. side dishes. Husband and eldest had fillet steak, which was cooked exactly as requested, I had monkfish with razor clams which was gorgeous, and the 12 year old chose a burger from the children’s menu which was HUGE (easily an adult sized meal). Deserts were all delicious, boys had the rocks & moss, husband the soufflé and I had the raspberry mousse which was beautiful, and light and packed with raspberry flavours and texture. If I had one recommendation, it would be to include ingredient details on the cocktails list - I don’t drink them often enough to know names (other than a couple), and I wouldn’t just pick one without knowing what was in it. Service was excellent - attentive, but not intrusive.

    First of all I’d like to say how lovely it was to be able to go out and enjoy a first rate dining experience again after such a long time. On arrival we were greeted warmly by reception and shown to our seats. The seating was a little disappointing as I was facing away from the bar and had a view only of the door to the toilets which was immediately adjacent. Once the couple next to us had vacated their table I turned round and sat on the bench facing the middle of the room and enjoyed the dessert from that position. That was then more comfortable and pleasant. Without that I think the seatIng may have impacted our enjoyment of the evening. The food was wonderful. I particularly enjoyed the lamb main course and the soufflé desert. We enjoyed two glasses of champagne and a Italian red with our meal. I should also mention the treacle coloured bread we had with the starter which was really good. The waiting staff were friendly and attentive throughout despite having to endure the discomfort of a mask. All in all it was a great experience and thoroughly enjoyable.
