We visited with our family for afternoon tea and were treated like royalty. Our party consisted of seven adults and two children. We decided with the staff that five teas would be enough, how wrong we were!. After trying a variety of delicious sandwiches, scones with jam and cream, mini sausage rolls and cakes the staff brought rhubarb muffins which... More

Good food, great service, but not for a younger crowd. Nice authentic Scottish offering. The sticky toffee desert is a must!

My husband stayed at Rufflets for the weekend and enjoyed a dinner bed and breakfast package. We enjoyed lunch in the hotel on Saturday too. The service was excellent, the food was delicious and it was very good value for money for the quality of food.

Many thanks for taking the time to give us the feedback after your Festive Lunch. I am sorry about the confusion with the booking - the table was reserved for you, but there had been a mix up with the names attached to the booking. With regards the quality of the meal, and the price, we have tried to provide... More

We dined here with friends on the evening of our one night stay at the hotel. Without wishing to err on the gushing I really can't fault either the food or the service. We had drinks and nibbles in the lounge by the open fire and returned here for coffee after we had eaten; by then a comfy sofa was... More

Hello, me and my husband visited your lovely hotel on Monday July 8th 2013 for lunch and while the garden and surrounding areas where immaculate we were rather disappointed by the meal we ate. The starters we had took almost 10 minutes to arrive which was a disappointment and when they finally arrived my soup was not very hot verging... More

We had Sunday lunch for the second time and it was all a bit chaotic. We were put at a table already set for another party, the first course was pretty unexciting, the meal was rushed (they tried to clear my plate before I was finished too) and the order was not carried through to the kitchen accurately. I would... More

I emailed Rufflets Country House Hotel about various issues during our stay, several weeks ago, and have yet to have a response. They cater for vegetarians - badly. It was not a fair meal compared to the meat offering amongst some other things.

Dear Emma I am sorry to hear that there were issues that we did not address, and I am also looking into why your post-stay email was not responded to. On first inspection, it appears that it didnt get through, but I will continue to look. We do offer a separate vegetarian menu, and we can also provide suitable dishes... More
