The restaurant was great. The food selection covered a wide range and has something for everyone. I had the salmon for starters, my partner had the soup. Both delicious. The mains were fish for me and lasagna for her. The portions were big. So no space for dessert. The wine list was good and we ended our meal with a... More

Visited with my Mother and her friend on a Saturday night. Tried to book for 19:00 but they asked if 18:45 was suitable and on arrival we realised the reason as several larger tables appeared at 19:00 and the extra 15 minutes gave us time to order drinks and our food before the 'rush' - good call Alexandra! The food... More

My husband and I have stayed many times at this hotel. The owners Fiona and Allan and all their staff make us feel so welcome and look after us very well. Meals are excellent and great value.

Very busy when we entered however was greeted by a friendly waitress who promptly found us a table. Food was ok. Felt the Lasagne lacked a bit in taste even although the portion was very generous. Best service we have had in a long time when eating out, for us this what makes this establishment.

Called in for a bar meal while visiting Ballater and were fortunate to get a table, as both restaurant and bar were very busy. Attentive service and tasty, reasonably priced food. Would recommend.

My wife and I had two meals in this hotel during a visit to Balliter and surrounding areas. The staff were very knowledgeable, friendly and helpful and the varied amount of food was very good, wholesome and well presented and very good value for money. Thoroughly recommended.. Jim & Martha Allan

We ate here on our first night in town. We didn't have reservations for the main seating area, but they were able to seat us right away in the pub section (where most of the patrons were anyways). Service was very prompt. My wife ordered the Beef lasagne with salad and chips, and I had the Breast of chicken stuffed... More
