Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

An amazing dinner experience, started with a wee drink in the whisky lounge where we were able to consider out dinner choices and place our order while snacking on truffle popcorn and olives. Proceeded with an incredible dinner or partridge and pork belly to start...and followed by venison and chicken. Honestly, the whole menu sounded amazing and we will be back to try more! The staff was also incredible and so nice to chat to, would recommend to anyone who will listen!More

We had lunch here with our good friends, up from England. They’d booked it as despite living in Aberdeen, we hadn’t realised what a gem this place is. Fabulous decor, really lovely service and delicious food, catering to all tastes. They also have 4 bedrooms,...a lovely small lounge, a whisky bar and a small private dining room, all exquisitely decorated. We loved it and will definitely go back! Well done guys!!More

A beautifully and interestingly decorated place but wait until you get the food! Our meal was excellent. A big variety of flavours attractively presented and served by enthusiastic, knowledgeable and friendly people. Totally accommodating and even offered to do a dish on the starter menu...as a main. When the food came it was easy to see why they were Michelin recommended and have 2 AA rosettes for culinary excellence. Superb. Well done all.More

WOW! I have been meaning to come here for a very long time and today the need to get my daughter's 7 month old twins to nap meant the trip from home to Kildrummy was the perfect length. We were most certainly not disappointed: I...had duck parfait with brioche toast, my son-in-law a burger and my daughter soup and a BLT baguette and we couldn't resist 3 sticky toffee puddings. All this is food you can find anywhere on any menu in many restaurants but.... the Kildrummy elevate it to another level. Every mouthful was delicious! The tablet that came with the coffee was the perfect ending to a lunch that we all agreed, must be repeated.More

When you say we had fish / chips and burger / chips it doesn’t sound too exciting does it, however, at The Kildrummy Inn the ordinary becomes exceptional. I had the fish , the batter was so light and crispy and the chips were cooked...to perfection. My brother in law had the burger and he enthused over both the quality of the burger and the home made mayonnaise. We also had posset and chocolate mousse which again were of the highest quality. Service was friendly and efficient. Definitely worth a visit and we intend to return as soon as possible.More

We had a fantastic dinner and overnight stay at The Kildrummy. The Inn is decorated beautifully with a cozy, welcoming feel. The food is first class with first class service to match. David, Sophie and all the staff were welcoming, chatty and friendly. Nothing was...too much trouble and we felt really well looked after. I cannot recommend this place enough, we will definitely be returning.More

What a wonderful place , we managed to sit outside for pre lunch drinks as weather was gr8 . The inside dining area is lovely and not too big . There was plenty of choice on the menu and service with a smile. There is...a whisky bar through from the dining area which is special. Thoroughly recommend this place for lunch or dinner.More

Called in looking for lunch as we headed to the coast, thankfully they took us in and we were not disappointed. We were not overly hungry so opted for a starter and dessert. Hubby took the smoked salmon, very tasty and the dressing was divine,...I had the blue cheese and rocket salad, very fresh and the cheese was amazing. We shared a warm brownie for dessert and having had many brownies over the years it was right up there. It is a rural place however very busy, a real treat. The dinner menu looks stunning, and we were advised that all produce is local which is brilliant, it is a pity we were not there for evening dining.More

On recommendation of a friend we took the opportunity whilst in the area to have lunch. The surroundings are beautiful, classy yet homely, my husband commented the toilets were amongst the “fanciest” he’s seen! Our young waitresses were very pleasant and polite. All the food...was delicious and served quickly without feeling rushed. We will in turn be recommending it to others, look forward to returning.More
