Reasonably good food

We only ate one meal at the restuarant whilst staying at the Royal Scot and it was reasonably good with great service.

a very nice selection of items on the menu for all three mealtimes, all very nice portions, and very fresh with good presentation. Prices won't break the bank, and service is very good . Staff are very personable and friendly. I highly recommend this relaxing oasis of calm for any meal!

I think the Royal Scot Hotel used to have as it's restaurant, a pub; but now they have Jonathan's. We came over late one evening when we were too tired to walk very far.

Too footsore to venture out from hotel, we hobbled to J for supper. Everyone in sight, including waitstaff, was over 60. Some WAY over. Menu was just OK, wine list was short and dull. Dinner rolls were hot, fresh and tasty. The rest of the food was bland, seemed either pre-packaged or kitchen-made but insipid. Lamb shank was good meat... More

We visited for breakfast with a family of four. Our comments about the poor ventilation was met with "We do not smell anything!!" Will never eat here ever ever ever again.
