Booked dinner, bed and breakfast package with hotel. The menu selection changed daily, the food presentation and service was better than most city center restaurants... the food was delicious

After enjoying a festive meal in the past I decided to treat my mother to the Boxing Day Buffet,expectations for the meal were high. However the experience was not the sought after meal we had imagined - instead it left a bitter taste in everyone's... More

Visited today for a family Boxing Day buffet meal. 1.30pm table. Soup was ok. Buffet was not so good. The choice was awful. Imagine serving meat but no hot accompaniments, just salad items and not very imaginative ones at that. Service was bog standard. We were not courted as is expected of this establishment. An incredibly young staff without any... More

Hi Carolyn We are sorry to hear you didn't enjoy the Boxing Day Buffet as much as you usually do and wish you had let us know at the time. We would have been happy to have offered the children something more to their liking and indeed to make sure everyone had plenty to enjoy. We are a local business,... More

I took my two sisters and my wife for dinner to The North West Castle, Stranraer on Saturday 10th December 2016. The whole experience was underwhelming to say the least and it started with an uninspiring menu with very little choice. The food was very poor both in terms of the quality and the presentation and looked as if it... More

We really enjoyed the food, service and atmosphere in the Regency dinning room, we missed the piano player, the background music was ok but you can't beat live music. The menu covered most tastes and I especially liked the cranican.

The venue is a stone throw from the town centre. Access from the main road and a nice size parking in front of the hotel. Entrance is very nice with an old revolving door. The tea was served in the dinning room which is very grand and nicely preserved. Spread of lots of sandwiches and a cake stand with plenty... More

We ate there as part of a half board deal. Usually on these deals the food is very average but we felt that, here, both choice and presentation were excellent. At bot breakfast and dinner the dining room was very busy with conference delegates and a coach party but staff levels were adequate and service did not suffer.
