After many weeks of Covid restrictions we yet again enjoyed dinner at this lovely, privately run hotel. The restaurant is very tastefully decorated and has a roaring fire to warm you on cold winter nights. The food is consistently excellent whether you are a meat...eater or a vegetarian. Peter and Robert are great hosts and always provide a warm and cheery welcome.More

I came here for dinner with my son and my 2 friends who we were visiting. We were immediately made to feel very welcome. I am gluten free and there were a lot of choices available on the menu and I was also advised they...could tweak other dishes for me if I fancied something else. My 3 year old was well looked after and left a happy wee boy,this restaurant is very family friendly. Robert who served us was fantastic, nothing was too much trouble. All our food was delicious and we had a great night. I will definitely return on our next visit 🥰.More

Visited for lunch on 26/09 and what a lovely time we had. The hotel itself is gorgeous and the lunch was delicious, we would definitely be back. We both kept commenting on how lovely the place was.

Friendly and welcoming, with brilliant food and decent portions (not sacrificing quality). We ate in the bar as we had our dog with us, and it was perfect for what we wanted. Great service and not pushy or overbearing at all, and good steak!

Every time I and my family visit Mcinnes Hotel and Restaurant we are extremely happy! We love the food and the level of service is inspiring! The owners are very welcoming and the staff are just as invested as the owners. They are all very...knowledgable of local amenities which is fab if you need a recommendation. 10/10 would highly recommend! The food is lush and the rooms are absolutely stunning. Can’t wait for our next visit to the area!More

Much improvement since new owners have taken over. Dining room & bar area look lovely. Covid precautions good. Dining room slightly lacking in atmosphere and slightly spoilt initially by family with screaming child tho’ not restaurant’s fault. Good choice on menu but not so good...for person with onion-related allergy. Told we should have informed in advance. Fair enough but chef could still have offered some alternatives or given bigger portions of non-allergenic accompaniments to make up as other places have kindly done. We’d still go back because they are really trying to improve it so much.More

We phoned to book an evening meal on spec although there were tables available when we arrived. The food was tasty and there was a fair selection of wines on the menu. They take Covid precautions very seriously, almost to the point of being stand-offish...with signage. We left with the distinct feeling that the evening hadn’t been as relaxed as it could have been!More

Visited here for dinner yesterday. Great Covid Measures put in place & lovely friendly staff. I ordered Chicken with peppercorn sauce & my hubby ordered Balmoral Chicken. Both were very tasty but I couldn't even finish mine as I was stuffed. I then had vanilla...icecream with chocolate sauce & my hubby had sponge with a strawberry sauce & custard. I couldn't finish mine again because I was so stuffed!! The gentleman who served us called Robert was so lovely, friendly, funny & was chatting to all the people dining & kept checking everyone was okay & had a constant smile. He was a breath of fresh air and had great Customer Service! A huge asset to the restaurant. Thank you Robert for making our evening!More
