Having read good reviews about the Riverside Restaurant I was disappointed that its lunchtime menu is that of the Meeting Place which is more suitable for a weekday than Sunday lunch. Not a roast dinner in sight! The service was appalling. Almost an hour's wait for our food and we had booked beforehand. At least we had had a Scottish... More

We eat here regularly, mostly in the bistro but sometimes in the restaurant. When we saw a 5 course tasting menu advertised for £29 a head we just had to book a table. The staff were very friendly and attentive as usual, thank you Gill, Sophie and Sarah. All courses were fantastic but the cod, pea puree and potato rosti... More

We had a lovely evening meal here last Saturday night. There were good choices to be had from the menu and the staff were brilliant with my dietary requirements. Very reasonably priced for non-hotel guests. We will be back.

We were staying I the hotel for two nights and had dinner there on the first night. The Fishcake Starter was delicious as were the mussels. We both had steaks, huge, cooked to perfection with lovely accompaniments. No room for desserts! We chose the traditional Scottish breakfast on the first morning - wonderful. On the second morning we had smoked... More

Breakfast was not quite what I expected, staff not helpful at all and when you asked for extra butter for your toast,you were frown up. No jam only marmalade, no natural yogurt and jugs of fruit juice were never filled up so you may have wanted another glass but you,d over stepped the mark asking for more butter and jam.... More

Hello, Thank you for writing this review. I have taken your comments and conducted an investigation into what happened. Guests often rave about our breakfasts and all that we offer so I am somewhat surprised. I don't quite understand the lack of jam as we make or own jam and always have plenty. I'm sorry for this causing your decision... More

Pleasant lunch in this restaurant. Variety of options from sandwiches to burgers and fish and chips. Service was ok although we had 3 different people dealing with us and the water failed to appear. That was a minor detail, we all enjoyed our food and would certainly return.

Met friends here for lunch and was impressed by the warm welcome from the staff and the interior of the hotel. The reception area is furnished with very comfortable sofas and the paintings on the walls are all very Scottish but with a modern twist. The dining room is comfortable but lacks the atmosphere of the reception area but it... More
