We had mixed expectations of the restaurant here mainly due to the reaction of locals when we said we were dining here. Bemusement. Astonishment. Sincerest best wishes. This could be a cracking little hotel if it wasn't for the funereal atmosphere and the sense that...More

Fabulous food. We had starter and mains for £27.per head. Well presented and delicious . Service was top notch considering there had been a power cut due to the hurricane.

Lovely food, well prepared. The staff were friendly but a little inattentive, I think they were over worked. Also, to be charged £1.50 each for a bread roll is mean. Quality establishments should not charge for these little extras especially as the food is not...More

We stopped here as we walked form Aboyne to Ballater and were very happy with the coffee and with the service. Our waiter was Romanian and he could not have been more friendly and helpful.

Ate at this restaurant with family and they all had starters, which they enjoyed, I'd recommend the haggis truffles after stealing some from my partner. I had a steak for my main, which on first taste was extremely buttery and quite sickly, but after adding...More

This place had a pretty standard interior but a slightly more interesting than standard menu. The starters were good and a bit more interesting than the mains. Not an inexpensive meal and somehow atmosphere was sadly lacking😐

Very welcoming lunch time service. Tables inside or out in the garden area. Close to Loch Kinord and inside the Cairngorm National park. Right beside the Deeside Way
