My husband and I visited very recently as it was my 33rd Birthday and I wanted a nice meal. I had heard many good stories of the Fennel but had never been - we were certainly not disappointed! There is a really good selection on the menu and all of the specials sounded amazing. There were about 3 things I... More

We booked a table for 7 as part of celebrating my wife's birthday and they made it really special for us. Service is quick, warm, friendly and attentive. There was plenty of buzz about the place and our food was both varied and delicious. We kicked off with a bottle of prosecco to get going and followed up with both... More

I've been going to Fennel regularly since it opened 10 years ago & can honestly say I've only had a below par meal on a couple of occasions. We are spoilt in Inverurie having such a fantastic restaurant. The menu is changed regularly so it's not too repetitive and the weekly burger & steak nights are always popular. They have... More

Great setting, clean and nice decor. Friendly staff and enjoyable food. Will visit here again. My partner and I had the steak that was on special when we visited which we enjoyed. Sticky toffee for pudding which was as good as any. Nice relaxed atmosphere

I took friends for lunch at The Fennel. Firstly they could not find our booking and we ended up just outside the kitchen door where staff were going back and forth. I ordered Macaroni Cheese with black pudding top. It was a plate of dry pasta with hardly any sauce and you could not see the black pudding. My sister... More

On the way from Aberdeen to Dufftown, felt hungry and landed at the Fennel. The waiter was great. Food suggestions were good. A great experience of Scotland on our first day visiting from Florida.

Went with friends for Sunday lunch. The staff were friendly and efficient and the atmosphere was good as the place was full. Sadly the food did not live up to expectations. The potted prawns were the consistency of polenta as the prawns (if there were any) had been mashed into the clarified butter. The baked lemon sole was awful -... More
