Three of us had Sunday lunch here. It was a set menu with four or five choices for each course. At fifteen pounds each for three courses, I felt it was good value. A two course meal cost slightly less so there was no need to force down dessert to get your money's worth. The food was very tasty and timely served. Service was good. A jug of water was provided without even having to ask and, with water glasses already on the table, this is probably a matter of course. The chocolate fudge cake was excellent nice and moist and oozing chocolate sauce-unlike some of the rather dry versions I have had in the past. The Alona Hotel is a 4 star hotel in Strathclyde Park overlooking the Lake, and it's restaurant is a giant conservatory with windows looking onto the park and the lake. So, nice surroundings, especially for sun lovers. There is a smaller area used for those just dropping in for a coffee or a drink.

We were at Strathclyde Park myself husband elderly mother my daughter and 9 month old grandson. We decided to go for afternoon tea and went to the AlonA. It was wonderful if every way. The selection of food with the afternoon tea/coffee package was great lovely sandwiches beef & horseradish, tuna cucumber, cheese, ham & tomatoe good amount per person plus scones, cream, jam, fresh butter, strawberries clotted cream, carrot cake biscuits and a good sized coffee pot per person. Wonderful jug of iced water etc. Best afternoon tea I've had. The staff were great and provided good safe highchair for the baby and the toilet facilities were excellent for mum to reach as they were on same level and had disabled facilities and also excellent baby changing etc for Noah.

I had a look at the leaflets and saw good competitive delegate rates for meetings etc and offers for mothers day, weddings, funerals etc.

The Dinner menu looked good too. A really nice atmosphere in the AlonA and I would certainly visit again.

Visited The Alona for a birthday afternoon tea with three friends. Served by a lovely young (foreign) lady. Seated immediately and order taken within a few minutes of arriving. Food arrived around 10 minutes later. We had lovely freshly made sandwiches. Tuna mayo, roast beef and mustard, gammon salad and cheese and pickle. Scones were hot and served with jam and cream. Lovely cakes one of which was a thin shortbread topped with a raspberry mousse and fresh raspberry - delicious! Choice of tea or coffee was available. £7.99 per person. Staff were very attentive. Would highly recommend. Excellent value for money.
