The food is absolutely amazing, I ordered the chip shop starter; a mix of battered haggis, black, red, and white pudding served with sweet chilli sauce and I only wanted to try it as never done before DELICIOUS I enjoyed each mouth full. The steak for main was cooked to perfection and the ice cream was the cherry on the... More

Stopped off for lunch on our way home and staff greeted us with a warm welcome and guided us to seating area. The menu is quite extensive and takes a bit of reading to decide what to order. We decided on steak and chicken sandwiches which were very nice and accompanied with fries and salad. A very nice restaurant which... More

We enjoyed a lovely meal at the Cornkist. The menu had a good selection of choices so there's sure to be something you fancy. If you want a pudding, don't bother having a starter! lots of nice pudding options but no cheese board. The place was clean and staff friendly. Good value. The only negative thing I could say is...

We have eaten here many times and it is never a disappointment, the menu is huge and so are the portions. The Cullen Skink is the best I have ever had. We have eaten at lunch time and for an evening meal and never had a bad meal.

The Cornkist is always a treat. The portions are big and you will never come out feeling hungry! The staff are friendly and the food is good. There is plently of parking near the river across the road. A family favourite.

We have eaten here on many occasions. You must book a table as it is very popular. Good and varied menu. From traditional pub grub, fabulous roasts, to curries, fajitas, and vegetarian, all manner of delicious food. Easy wheelchair access and helpful staff. A thoroughly enjoyable visit every time.

We were at the Cornkist for a birthday lunch on a Saturday and had a lovely experience. There were four of us in the party and one in particular is quite fussy! The staff were really attentive and offered an alternative from the evening menu which went down a treat. There was a good selection of specials on offer and... More

I visited The Cornkist today with the intention of having lunch there with my dad. When I arrived and asked for a table for 2 (my dad was running late & would join me shortly) I was shown to a table in the far corner, quite close to 2 other tables with other diners seated. After about 5 or 6... More

Really good pub grub served exceptionally well. Set in the town of Ellon with plenty parking at rear of the property and across the road in a public car park with excellent walks along the river Ythan.
