Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Very busy evening in the Granary this evening, buts staff were welcoming and happy to assist. Had a lovely meal from the new menu with a few drinks. Liza and her team are a pleasure always with a smile.

We came here for a meal and some drinks for my mums birthday and were greeted by a lovely set up by Liza. This made our visit extra special and made my mums night. The staff are excellent and the food is tasty! Highly recommend

I have been to this restaurant many times & the food has always been hot & delicious, that’s why I recommend taking my mum for her 89th birthday with family. A large party ordered before us, so mains was over an hour wait, which would’ve...been okay if food was good. Unfortunately all meals were WARM. I like my food hot. I did tell them but all the server said was “ I’ll take it to kitchen to put under the heat” the steak was perfectly cooked so I didn’t want it overcooked so I said it’s fine & only ate the steak. All the rest was too cold for my liking. On paying I got no compensation. There was 5 of us there & all meals were warm. The rest of my company ate there’s but said to me outside it was warm. I don’t think I’ll be back. Person at till said we were not the only person to complain that night.More

Had a very lovely lunch here today, while up for the week on holiday. They accommodated our party of 6 no bother at all and the staff were all really lovely. Food was very tasty and service was speedy, if you get the chance to...try the Kyiv burger do it, it’s delicious. Nice end to our holiday, will come back again next time we’re in ElginMore

The Granary is not what it was. Meals are poor. I had to dash so was obliged to opt for a late breakfast. Vegetarian. Even this was poor.

On Friday we decided to try the Granary to celebrate my husbands birthday and booked a table of four. The food was excellent and came out of the kitchen quickly - compliments to the kitchen staff. The service, however, was appalling and actually ruined our...evening. After being seated, no one came to take our drinks order and I eventually stood up to wave a server over as by then we were also ready to order food. In general, the staff just seemed disinterested in customers and more interested in chatting to each other at the bar. After we'd finished eating, no one came to clear our plates or offer us dessert so after about 15 minutes I stood up to move the plates to the empty table next to us and, looking over at the bar, I realised why no one was attending to us - the waiters were sitting at another table eating dinner and having a fine time - at 8.30pm!! So we got up, paid the bill and left without having the dessert or coffee we would have ordered. Sadly, although the food was great, we won't be returning.More

The Granary has excelled again with their Christmas Day Feast, and at last year’s price as well. Traditional menu choice of well prepared and well presented food, served in a timely manner by friendly, cheerful staff. We enjoyed a variety of dishes all beautifully cooked...to perfection..

Christmas Dinner with family. Staff very attentive throughout. We had to ask for one of the meals as a takeaway due to personal circumstances and staff were very accommodating ensuring this member of our family still got their full order! Food was great. It was...fresh and tasty, well presented, just wish there had been more of it but all in all a pleasant experience. We didn't feel rushed, very relaxed atmosphere. Staff were friendly and smiling (even though they were working!). Christmas crackers on the table. Staff ensured we had a table that was big enough to have a pram near by. Thank you The Granary, we will be back.More
