Was treated to a meal last night with my daughter and her two middle children. Having been a fan of the ramnee for years, I was so very disappointed last night. It has to have been the most bland food I've ever tasted! It was awful! When I let the waitress know, she shrugged and asked if I wanted anything... More

I attended our Christmas Party Night on the 18th Dec 15 and really had a fun time. The staff are always very professional and friendly. The dining was something to talk about. I was extremely impressed with my meal, even to the extent I asked for the recipe for my starter which was just devine. I had prawn and crayfish... More

My wife and I stayed at this hostelry for two nights from 10/01/16 till 12/01/16. From the very moment of booking three rooms for our party the reception was superb, Ryan who took the booking ensured that everything was just as required, on arrival we were met ironically by the very pleasant Ryan, our rooms were immaculate and the beds...

We go to an event each Boxing day and because of the possibility of inclement weather, we try to find an overnight stay. What a find! I phoned the hotel because of a possible fault on the booking, and the receptionist was most helpful, suggesting that,we book a table for the steak night, just in case we decided to partake....

To spend our lottery win we decided to go and have afternoon tea. The spread was amazing enough to feed an army and not expensive. The only gripe is the size of the cups too small the tea is cold before you take a sip. Had to get a doggy bag to take the rest of the goodies home. Yummy.... More

We had a staff Christmas lunch today. I was delighted at the quality of the food, the presentation and the excellent service. So many of these seasonal lunch offerings are really mediocre, but Gary and his team excelled. Lovely veg, fabulous soup and warm bread. I'm difficult to please when I eat out as we cook well at home, but... More

We visited the Ramnee for a family funeral and were so well looked after. The staff were lovely: very helpful and friendly. The room was small but clean, comfortable and well equipped - apart from no anti-allergenic pillows. We ate in the bar for two meals and the food was much better than standard pub grub. It was very well... More

Took my Birthday Boy Husband and visiting Grandson from Christchurch NZ for a treat meal! 11 11. We haven't dined in the Ramnee because the standard of cuisine had dropped so much over the many years we have been living here - 2 of our daughters had their Wedding Reception there in the 90s - but we heard that it...

After a damp November hike up Cluny Hill we stopped here for lunch. As a schoolgirl in the fifties I used to walk past the Ramnee and wonder what it was like inside! The food we had was very nicely cooked and served, the staff were friendly and I liked the ambience. Next time we visit this area I would... More
