We both had the steak and ale pie, good quality as there was no fat or gristle, good quality and reasonably priced. Enjoyed it. The only criticism is the choice wasn’t great, I was hoping for some Orkney seafood
Lovely meal and drinks, we visited this week foe my birthday while up in Orkney. 3 meals, 2 puddings and 2 rounds of drinks four 3 people (including beers) £68.
Wonderful Burger menu, loved the Hawaiian burger it was lovely!
Sign says children welcome but...be aware they are only welcome if your eating. Even outside in beer garden they are not allowed for even soft drinks only if your eating in restaurant.
Lovely meal and friendly staff would recommend bookingMore
Popped into this place for a drink, love supporting local businesses. Won't be doing that again. It amazes me that when the hospitality sector is struggling to survive in this COVID era, that guests can be made to feel like you are imposing on the...place. Maybe COVID will filter out the chaff.More
St Ola looks depressing from the outside. And it proved to be ‘depressing’. The only good thing about the room was the view over the commercial docks. Our room was decidedly dated. The shower was ancient. Breakfast was a joke. We ate there twice. Breakfast...was served in the shabby hotel bar. One look in the evening sent us scurrying to the bar next door. On the first occasion we ate breakfast there my wife ordered a boiled egg. Unbelievably St Ola’s does not possess egg cups so the egg arrived in a poached egg container. The coffee I ordered proved to be powdered Nescafe from a jar. – awful! I had to go and find cutlery myself. My Scottish breakfast was OK. On the second occasion, although we were the only people there for breakfast we had to wait half an hour for our food. The barman explained that “there has been a problem”. The only saving grace was that the staff were pleasant.More
I wasn’t sure that I’d do a review here as I don’t generally like leaving negative leaning reviews for local businesses. We went for a child free lunch for the first time in nearly a year which we were both looking forward too. We both...ordered burgers. Each burger had 2 patties. Unfortunately 3 out of our 4 patties were raw in the middle. Now, when we bought this up they were immediately re-cooked and the burgers, chips and side salad were very tasty in the end. But it was very disappointing to have raw meat served to us given at the time we were the only people in. Service was good to resolve and staff were apologetic. As I say the properly cooked food was tasty. My other big gripe of the visit was once a few more people had come in to eat all we could hear was mobile phones pinging, message alerts, notification sounds. It was really annoying. Are we the only people who want a peaceful ‘phone-free’ meal? Have some common courtesy and turn your volume off. Even better, St Ola Hotel, perhaps request your guests silence their phone, a’ la the cinema?More
We had an excellent evening meal here, especially the nachos to start. Staff were great and did a good job particularly with the restrictions covid imposes. We went a couple more times for a drink and continued to be impressed.
