Has to be up there as one of the most stunning golf courses in the UK. Golf Course is a good test of golf for all handicaps male and female, the professional was very helpful and the club house, all i can say it was warm and friendly. I believe that the person behind the bar was the clubs steward... More

Ballater is my favourite place in the world and the golf course and views magnificent. However, the dining experience was incredibly disappointing. The advance reservation was noted under the wrong time, the promised table not given and the food very poor. Staff bustling around preparing tables for the next day's service. As paying guests we should not have to ask... More

However a young family... More

Ate here twice on our recent camping trip to Ballater. The food is lovely and excellent value for money. Staff were really helpful and accommodating when it came to our children's choices, preparing very generous 'half' portions of dishes they fancied on the adult menu. Would thoroughly recommend eating here.
