Not been to this place in a couple of years, so thought we would give it a try. The staff were attentive and friendly. Plenty choice on the menu. I had the brie, monkfish and cheesecake. All we very tasty and well presented. Reasonable prices and no negatives to report here. I didn't stay in the hotel, so can't comment... More

Lovely pub / hotel serving food - recommended by patrons in bar but I didn't have an evening meal. Breakfast was top notch, room comfortable, lovely bath - shower was a bit leaky. Couldn't fault the place - excellent staff. Bikes locked away indoors.

Have just returned from golf trip to North Berwick/Dunbar area during which we stayed at the Royal Mackintosh. Whilst some of the decoration is a bit dated this is more than compensated for by the group of girls who provided excellent service throughout our stay. What a pleasant change from the sterile environment and robo staff of the modern hotel... More

Had lunch here today Sept. 2nd 2014. Very good choice of meals: something for everyone. Staff were delightful and attentive. Well worth a visit. Dogs are allowed in the bar and our dog thought all his birthdays had arrived at once. Thoroughly enjoyed our visit. We will go back again soon.

We are just back from another nice stay at the Royal Macintosh. We arrived around 1.00pm on Sunday and were given room NO.10, the room looks out the front of the hotel and must be the best room in the hotel, the room was massive with a large toilet, with a large bed new tv and plenty shampoo/shower gel and...

Before I start, the small group of ladies who appear to be "jack of all trades" worked extremely hard. Whoever owns this hotel needs to invest some money in the place. Marston Inns are opening a 26 bed Inn near the Pine Marten in Dunbar - so I would get your act together. Towels - snow white and sheets clean,... More

Stayed one night, not sure who would review this as excellent or faultless. Staff are overworked with loads of differing roles. The reception is a serving hatch through to the bar, receptionist serves behind bar, and waits on. Staff pleasant enough all things considered. Nice big room, but very tatty, 90's décor/curtains tie back hanging off wall, cheap flat packed... More

I went to this restaurant on several occaisions and I enjoyed it very much evry time. The staff are very polite and efficient. During the week on certain nights over 60's enjoy 20% discount on food. The food was lovely and from a small but varied menu. So far this is the best place in Dunbar to eat and I'll... More

Stayed for one night on a recent touring trip, traditional decor, comfortable rooms, great breakfast and, if it's your tipple, there were over 50 whiskeys behind the bar to choose from. Would definitely use this hotel again.
