This review is well overdue (by over 6 months) but well worth writing. I am in the fortunate position to be able to review Kincaid House as a restaurant, a hotel and a wedding venue.
We first discovered the hotel when searching for somewhere to get married. It was the first place we looked at and although we felt we should look at others, we never found anywhere else with the same balance of great customer service, amazing food, lovely surroundings and a very reasonable price for exclusive use. We fell in love with the conservatory and loved the fact we could have the ceremony there. It meant we could get married, in the surrounds of the garden but stay warm and dry if it rained (which it did).If I'm being honest, the only thing that put us off slightly, was the heavily patterned carpet in the main function room. As it happened this was pulled out the month before our wedding and replaced with gorgeous wooden flooring! The wedding coordinator, Amie, is fantastic. She never seemed to get bored of our questions and nothing ever seemed like too much trouble. It was no problem to get in special drinks and tailor a meal for those with a host of dietary requirements. The day itself went very smoothly and there are some great places for photos whether the weather is kind or not.
In terms of a hotel, our party filled up the nine bedrooms and all were very happy with them. The breakfast next morning was fantastic and freshly cooked to order. To anyone considering this as a wedding venue but looking for more bedrooms, there are other hotels nearby along with some great self catering accommodation. Be aware too, that a private taxi to Glasgow City Centre is only around £14. Not much, if it's shared between four people.
Now onto the restaurant. Since first discovering Kincaid House, we have eaten there on a number of occasions. You have the option of eating in the conservatory or the Stables Bar which is attached to the hotel. I believe the menu is the same for both. The menu has a great selection on it, including good veggie options, and the food is amazing. We can be quite critical when it comes to eating out but can honestly say we have never had a bad meal here. The conservatory is great for a nice relaxing lunch and quite romantic at night, especially when the fairy lights go on. The Stables is great for the same quality of food but in a more relaxed bar environment. All at a very reasonable price, considering the high quality of the food.
Now what I think makes this place really stand out, and the above would not be possible without, is the staff that work there. They really are a credit to the management; I don't think we have ever come across such consistent, good customer service. Every member of staff we have dealt with has been extremely polite and very helpful. They genuinely seem to want you to have the best possible experience without going over the top. A special mention has to go to Suzanne and Craig but everyone has been great.
This may sound strange, but discovering Kincaid House has been one of the great perks in getting married. We love the fact we can pop back there for a casual meal and it's always the first place we think of when planning something for a special family occasion. I may be going on a bit but I can thoroughly recommend Kincaid House as a restaurant, hotel and wedding venue. Enjoy!
