Together with a dedicated and hard working team, my aim is to ensure all our customers enjoy a superb dining experience in the Hotel. The Silver Tassie Hotel has established itself as one of the town's most reliable establishments for good food and quality hospitality using only using the freshest ingredients in all our dishes. We take great pride in our food, as it is all freshly made on the site by our highly skilled and creative culinary staff. All our food is sourced locally and where possible using sustainable produces, all of our meats, fish and vegetable have full traceability. We have carefully planned our menus to ensure there is something to cater for all tastes with a great emphasis on fresh seafood and locally sourced meat with our "Tassie Steaks" our specialty dishes. Our Sunday Carvery Lunch is an experience not to miss out on with 5 courses to be enjoyed during a pleasant afternoon of dining.

Eating should be an experience, which is why we taken great care to ensure the restaurant is the epitome of comfort, wood paneled walls, crisp white linen table cloths, a large stone fireplace and sumptuous leather chairs ensure that the whole dining experience is a comfortable and memorable one.

“Mediocre food and confusing service”
Reviewed 1 July 2014

It is conveniently located off the main road, and the food was all warm. That is all I liked about it.

The quality of the ingredients was poor and there was a very confusing serving and self serving system.

For the price of the lunch we ordered I would have expected chips cut from potatoes on the premises, not frozen chips merely deep fat fried. This is just a small example of the cheap ingredients.

Will never be back.

“40th wedding anniv”
Reviewed 1 July 2014

Had dinner the three nights of our stay. Were impressed with quality of food and excellent service. On the first night of our stay we were the only couple in the dining room which created a strange atmosphere. The following night was our actual anniv but it was dinner as usual. Large contingent of Germans created more normal atmosphere. Wd recommend this restaurant.ŷ

“Nice place - Silver Tassie”
Reviewed 12 June 2014

We stayed just one night while playing golf at the Portsalon Golf Club. The hotel and restaurant were very nice - kind of old fashioned hotel rooms. Rooms were very clean and well kept. We enjoyed our meal there - dinner and breakfast. Handy location for the golf course which I highly recommend too.

“Not that great.”
Reviewed 2 June 2014 via mobile

Due to other people booking this place i have had the misfortune to eat here on several occasions. The food is consistently unpleasant and very freezer to oven style. The staff are pretty rude, quite a lot of surly young adults. The last time i ate here the waitress pulled the menu away from us half way through our order as she had laid down the wrong menu, when it took more than 30 seconds for us to choose from the other menu she started rolling her eyes and became visibly annoyed. When my order came it was wrong and when i sent it back it came back on another plate with the wrong sauce having been wiped off with a cloth. Gross. We stayed for a few drinks afterwards but as the hotel was uncomfortably hot we chose to leave. When we were leaving there were a couple of people from a large wedding party throwing up in the car park. Kind a sums the place up.
