“Will not disapoint”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 March 2013

We ate here for three nights on the run and the food was consistantly excellent and well presented. Locally sourced produce is perfectly cooked and well presented and service can't be faulted. Well done.

“Lovely food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 March 2013

Stayed here for the weekend. The food was exceptional. Had 2 meals and both were wonderful. Loved the lamb with red cabbage and black pudding mash followed by sticky toffee pudding. Yummy. My husband had cheeseboard with 6 different local cheeses.
Next night I tried breast of duck followed by cranberry creme brûlée . Also delicious.
Well worth a visit to the restaurant even if you are not staying at the hotel. The friendly staff completes a lovely evening.

“A favourite”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 November 2012

My wife and I have been here more than once. The hotel is an old established Deeside landmark. The menu is varied and the standard of food is high. We felt it just a touch on the expensive side for the portions - but this place will not let you down.
