Had a great lunch for an 89th birthday party. Booked with Flic and she was brilliant. Felt welcomed and looked after from the start. Meal was lovely and everyone enjoyed themselves.

Last minute Saturday Lunch at HFAL and not disappointed. No issues booking a table and the staff were very accommodating as we had our 6 week old baby with us. Food was of a very high standard and the service exceptional.

The New Year celebration was fantastic. Good food and attentive staff in superb surroundings. A real treat for MacKintosh enthusiast. The after dinner entertainment was a traditional Scottish dance bands whose enthusiasm was infectious and who provided instruction for all the dances in a very relaxed manner. We will be booking up early to experience it all again next year.... More

Lovely food, very fresh and tasty. It's always busy, so it has a great atmosphere, and friendly staff. A lovely place for lunch then a walk around the house and gardens.

Don't be put off by the fact that CR Mackintosh's house has only recently been built. Lesser known building for us but you'd kick yourself if you didn't go.

A phenomenal place to visit in every way: a lovely building, excellent interior design and a fab restaurant. You will need a full day here to soak in the fantastic splendour. Mackintosh lovers prepare yourself for a treat.
