This review is only for the cafe as this pensioner didn't try any of the activities. Visited with a friend for lunch we both took the soup and a sandwich option the cauliflower and nutmeg soup was very good and the sandwiches fine. The cafe is bright and airy and the staff very friendly and helpful

We booked for the Burns Lunch. We have been to similar events elsewhere in the past that have not always measured up, but this was different. There appeared to be a capacity crowd, which gave a good atmosphere for a start. It was good to see the piper at the door to greet guests on arrival. We were quickly seated... More

Sitting where we were we could see into the food prep area. It didn't look as clean as I think it should have been and a guy kept walking into it with his wellie boots on. Staff had their hair loose and weren't wearing aprons. In the end the food wasn't all that great and a bit overpriced for what... More

It's never good to get a poor review, and so, of course I am very sorry we didn't come up to your expectations. However, let me explain. Deeside Activity Park is part of our farm business. All of the beef is from our Cairnton Aberdeen Angus pedigree herd, and all of the produce in the kitchen is either produced on... More

Great family experience. Tom was a very kind and understanding instructor and found the level of difficulty that suited us all. Enough adrenalin rush - but not too much. Good equipment. Lots of fun.

Didn't take part in any activities this visit, just took lunch in the café. Delicious as always, the home reared beef is among the best I have tasted whether as a steak sandwich or as a burger. Winter Sundays see a carvery in an adjacent room with a wider selection of meats, lovingly prepared by the proprietor himself (no doubt... More

This was an excellent choice for a family day out during the October school holidays. The meat served in the restaurant is produced on the farm, and is absolutely delicious. Choice of veg was a bit limited, but for children it's just right. Lots of activities for old and young, friendly, knowledgeable staff...what more can one look for?

This review is for the cafe only as we didn't try any activities. We had a bowl of soup, a toastie and 2 bottles of water and paid £12. It was nice but overpriced.
