Very nice location in a quiet and calm place by the river. Old house with staircase maze. Romatic interior in the room. Carpet wall to wall. Restaurant quite good. Breakfast with bacon, eggs and all you could ask for.

We live locally and have been to Banchory Lodge a number of times. We had the cote de boeuf last night. It was fantastic. The food was superb and as always the service was excellent. In particular, David is a real hit with our family. We will definitely be coming back soon.

Visited this establishment for the first time today and enjoyed an excellent lunch. Service was good, food was really good and cheese selection really to my taste (tangy cheddar, creamy Brie and grab you by the throat Cashel Blue) all washed down with dark fruity Shiraz. Will be back for more.

Lunched there with friends and had an excellent experience. The venue is comfortable and “smart”, with pleasing décor and great views out over the River Dee. Menu was varied and suited a variety of tastes, but, predominantly based upon local Scottish fare. Service was very friendly and efficient. Food was tasty, cooked and presented to a high standard.

The atmosphere and the food here is lovely. David did a great job of making sure we had a nice evening. The chicken wings and the mussels went down a treat. I also finished my wife's fish and chips because I'm greedy. They tasted good too. We will be going back for sure.
