Took some visiting friends here in the hope and expectation that the standards previously enjoyed would remain under changed ownership. Sadly this was far from so. The 'Sunday roast' dinners were deemed poor by all - basically a reheated meal with attendant vegetable mush.
The standard of table service was abysmal and embarrassing at the staff's evident lack of experience and training. Eg spilling the wine whilst pouring a taste then leaving that glass unfilled after acceptance!
Worst perhaps is that we had the decency to contact the owners to convey our dissatisfaction and were asked to leave some time for our concerns to be explored. Well, over 10 weeks on our tolerance has expired as neither contact nor explanation has been forthcoming. Managerial arrogance such as this does not warrant our custom and sadly, we can only record the demise of a once great place to dine and stay. There is much better available in the vicinity.

Room tip: Wait until existing management wakes up or moves on.

We’ve eaten here a few times and every meal has been fantastic.

Although we were the only diners on our last visit (a Thursday lunchtime) the menu was really interesting and our choices were exquisitely prepared and served - it was like having a private chef at our disposal!

This place is a real gem. Our previous visits have been on the weekend and it has been full every time.

We have dined many times in the Garden Cafe but not in the Boath House dining room or stayed in the hotel before. What a treat it was. We stayed in room 8, a ‘garden’ room with a separate private conservatory, large wet room and free standing bath within the room. Dinner on both nights was fantastic, wines were great and the lounge has an honesty bar which is well stocked. Candles are lit, lamps are on and the fire is on, all giving a lovely welcoming atmosphere. There is appropriate music, lovely floral arrangements and so much art it is like an art gallery (one of the owners is an artist). All staff were fantastic, discreet but attentive and knowledgeable. A very talented chef and team prepared for us tarts, beef, venison and pasta. Breakfast was also fantastic ranging from home made granola and jam, avocado on toast or full Scottish. Large grounds and gardens with plenty to see including a very unique sauna in the woods! Everything was marvellous and we will be back.

We visited for a special Saturday lunch with friends . Husband and I have been before and enjoyed the food and surroundings so recommended Boath to our friends .
Sadly something was not right when we were there on Saturday. Booked on line and answered the question re food allergies / intolerance . My husband dairy intolerant .It came as a surprise to the restaurant no prep from them .They did adapt dishes but I fear there was dairy somewhere in the food as he has had a bad reaction.
Whilst the waiting staff were polite and personable they seem to have little or no training, disappointing for such an establishment . When we visited in July everything was in order, not now unfortunately
On the plus side my meal was delicious and the ambiance in the garden was just magical. Invest in training Boat House .

Room tip: Back up online booking with a phone call if you have specific requirements ie fallergies gies

Food was vastly overpriced for the quality and style. Service from young waiters could have been sharper and the trousers could have been smarter. Paying almost £80 for lunch for 2, I'd expect the food to be more impressive than a bowl of pasta with tomato sauce.
