Halibut was fantastic, haddock was really tasty, chips were divine. It was all really good. Cullen Skink was the best I've had - tasty, not too creamy and meaty.

I organized a run in my area for my colleagues in The Veteran Cycle Club and selected The Fife Lodge Hotel for our lunch. After cycling though Duff House Estate woods on our elderly bicycles we were ready for a good lunch before our afternoon's pedaling. We were not to be disappointed a warm welcome was followed by an excellent... More

We visited here as a Christmas party (late review I know). The meals were rushed, the food was sub-standard, milk on the table was curdled, vegetables were cold (and arrived when we were almost finished our meal). I'm not rushing back!

Having posted your review in late June for a Christmas party we have difficulty in commenting with any facts other than to say it is our aim to provide our customers with food cooked and presented in a manner which best promotes the hotel and leaves the guest with the memory of having eaten well and at a price which...

At a recent stay in Macduff we dined at the Fife Lodge on Sunday evening. The meal was overall disappointing. A very limited menu was offered, no beef meal available on night. The fish (and the obligatory chips) we chose was more batter than fish. The white wine we chose was presented unchilled, and we were told that's how the... More

We do apologise for your bad experience. We were extremely busy and very few people had booked so we were caught slightly on the hop. Being Father's Day, we had a limited Sunday menu alongside the Father's Day menu which had a choice of two meat dishes. The Steak & Ale Pie on the Sunday menu had proved very popular... More

We were here for a family funeral and they treated us well, except we did have to keep going into the kitchen and asking for more tea and coffee. Having said that they opened the bar for us and we all sat round the lovely log fire, so that was great.

We have our Ruby Wedding Anniversary booked at the Fife Lodge in June and we had not heard much about it for a while so we decided to "check it out" with the help of another couple. We received a warm welcome when we arrived and were shown to an area in the bar/lounge where we enjoyed a quiet drink... More

Dined at the Fife Lodge on Saturday night while on a short visit from London. The food and service was excellent, much improved on an earlier visit in 2012. I would certainly recommend to others and will difinitely come back again.

Our table of 4 more than doubled the total of people eating on a Saturday night. The food was ok but my child sized portion was not worth what it cost. I won't be hurrying back any time soon. On a positive note the ginger pudding was lovely and by far the highlight of our visit
