“Ellengowan restaurant”
Reviewed 8 June 2014

Roy Herries is the new chef here and he's continuing with the same high standard he had at the Laird's Inn. Varied menu, nicely cooked and friendly service. Good value especially on Sunday when they do a special set menu.

Room Tip: We only are in the restaurant and didn't stay at the Hotel

We did not stay in the hotel but there is nowhere to review the restaurant but here, and it is definitely worth mentioning.
The Ellengowan now has a new chef, Roy Herries, previously of The Laird's Inn.
Fabulous food!
We ate here 3 times during our visit to the area and the meals were faultless on each occasion. Prompt and friendly service from Connor, our waiter. We tried several of the starters, mains & desserts and really enjoyed them all. The Aberdeen Angus Beef burger was wonderful, the best I have eaten. Tasty Tomato & Chilli soup, Whitebait, all excellent. We visit the area every year and it is so good to have a great place to eat.
You MUST try it.

being big wicker man fans, we did our own film tour around the area. this pub was one of our stops. very nice pub and staff. we didn't stay here, just went in for a drink and a look. it was very busy, but we were served quickly. there are lots of wickerman photos everywhere, which was nice to see, inc. more recent of Edward Woodward visiting the pub. god bless his soul.

lovely place in all. it would be worth staying there some time.

Room is refurbished. Clean. Good bed, tv, wifi ok, lots of space. Village is poor. The bar is a real bar, not for families. Bathroom is old.fashioned. price is reasonable. Very quiet street. Good for a short stay.

Room Tip: We had nr 10 on the front side lots of light.

Just returned from a three night stay in the Ellengowan and really enjoyed the experience. Although Creetown is hardly a centre of life and laughs, this is a good base to visit a beautiful area. The double I stayed in was beautifully decorated, well looked after and very clean. The breakfast and dinner were both good value and served with a smile by a very helpful and attentive waitress. I would certainly recommend the Banoffee pie. The staff couldn't do enough for us, and at the price charged it was excellent value. There was a slight issue with payment initially - the computer system does not seem to work well as they failed to take a deposit when I booked - but they were more than happy to sort it for us. We were there as fans of The Wicker Man, but it was much more.

Room Tip: Room 10 was beautiful and spacious, although the double was two singles pushed together.
