Was treated to lunch by my daughter and husband. A complimentary glass of fizz on table. Small plates menu extensive and mouth-wateringly delicious. The carpaccio of beef was melt in the mouth. The cod was perfectly cooked. The game pie a delight. An impromptu performance of "Happy Birthday" from staff and customers on the arrival of a homemade birthday cake... More

Food absolutely delicious, excellent value for money, staff great. Only one negative disconnect the speaker, the music was awful. Get the chef his own music system. We had an excellent late lunch will definitely go back. Thank you

Had a pre Xmas lunch with friends. The meal was a tapas style "small plates". Absolutely delicious. Staff attentive and friendly. Front of house was exactly what you look for, informative, knowledgeable, friendly. We are all looking forward to a return visit soon. Spot on.

Took husband and friends to Mount Stuart yesterday for an extended house tour followed by a wonderful dining and shopping experience in the visitors centre. As usual, the house tour did not disappoint. This glorious house has so many facets to offer, from the ceilings to the door furniture, from the indoor heated swimming pool built in the 1870s, the...

In a party of 7 including 2 8 year olds, none of us have ever been in a more beautiful stately home than this one. Everything is beautiful and original. Everywhere you look there is something original. So much attention to detail and so well maintained. The weather didn't allow us to spend much time in the gardens and grounds... More

This must be the best manor house I looked at while in the UK. The marble and glass work was amazing.

Spent a good few hours here looking at all the old marble, paintings and woven carpet work - well kept place which would not need a lot of restoring

I visited 3 "great houses" while in Scotland this year and really liked this one the best. The docents were knowledgeable and friendly. The house is absolutely beautiful as were the extensive grounds. The house was built in the 1880's so its relatively "new" as great houses go.
