Nice bar lunch. Portions were pretty good and food arrived hot and fresh. Service was pretty slow though which was surprising for a Friday lunch time given there were only about 3 other tables in the whole place. Cock and Bull is better and close by.

Was very impressed with the quality of food! My husband and I both had 3 courses and we both felt it was all of a high standard and perfectly cooked! Will definitely go back.

Stopped off here today for lunch as it was handy for visiting Balmedie Beach, and I am so glad that we did. The menu has a nice selection of dishes at a reasonable price and all meals were very nicely presented and tasted really good. We will definitely be back.

The food was superb and the service was as good as I've had. Euan and his team really made it an. Enjoyable stay. The rooms were clean but basic, those... More

I had the best afternoon tea, possibly in Aberdeen/shire and I have tried quite a few, at the White Horse recently with two of my girl friends. The restaurant has recently been refurbished and looks great, very cosy with a log burning stove and with a Scottish, country feel. We had a lovely table set next to the fire and... More
