Excellent meal and venue for a private function for a 60th birthday. Food options and service were great. Staff were very accommodating and helpful. Would definitely recommend using the venue for this type of function.

I have been to The Quaich on many occasions now on a Tuesday, a day that you are advertised to be open. Repeatedly to find your closed for varying reasons, if you can not get the staff to cover for sick staff you should post 'winter' opening times that show you are closed on a Tuesday. It is always a Tuesday that is affected and you are also closed on a Monday. You are letting your customers down badly, and you will ultimately lose customers if you do not honor your commitments.
