Had our wedding reception in here, 20 years ago. Thought it would be a nice treat to stop by today, for afternoon tea. Well, calling to make a reservation didn't fill me with confidence. The chef hadn't turned in and there was some shouting back and forward on the other end of the telephone to see if they could still... More

What can I say, I have tried on numerous visits to give business to a local hotel however have given up trying to get a decent meal in this establishment. Countless supposedly chefs have not made the benchmark of providing even the basics ! Bar service and waitressing is good When a restaurant is empty it does nobody no favours... More

On arriving for a 4 o'clock meal everyone had congregated in the foyer as we were informed the tables were not ready. There were quite a few empty tables but we were seated about five feet from open doors - not... More

Booked for Christmas dinner. Over an hour to get our starter then served crushed ice as a sorbet in a paper cake case. Eventually, after being seated for 2 hours 20 minutes, my daughter's main course arrived stone cold. Waited 10 minutes for a waitress to appear to complain (still not served our food). Eventually got up went to the... More

All round good experience. food good, staff very friendly and helpful. DJ was great. pity there was only 2 tables but I enjoyed it non the less. The real log fire on arrival was lovely. The chef was very friendly, she even came out from the kitchen to make sure everything was ok with our food.

On arriving for our pre booked (a week in advance) lunch, there was no one to be found in reception or in the bar. My mum proceeded to look for some staff on the ground floor of the hotel and eventually found a cleaner who asked if she could help. My mum explained that we were booked for lunch, to... More

I recently attended a Christmas Party Night at the Strathearn Hotel with a club that I belong to. I had never gone to the Strathearn Hotel before but had heard reasonable things about the establishment so was hoping for the best. From the moment we went in, the party night just went from bad to worse. We had to ask... More
