good food

very nice place good food however the waiting staff had problems with English trying to explain what kind of soup was on offer and a bit overkill when 4 separate waiting staff asked if everything was o.k. would recommend and would return in the future as the menu is varied and good price .

Myself and my wife have had lovely meals at Ash in the past so when her sister and partner came up for a weekend we did not hesitate to book a table for Lunch on Saturday. Oh dear! what a big disappointment we had this time! They took or orders then we sat for 30 minutes with no sign of... More

Service was very good. All the staff I had dealings with were polite. The restaurant does get quite busy quite quickly as there appears to be numerous deals (offers) on food. Although the staff were kept busy it did not fault the quality of the service. Both my guest and I enjoyed a two course meal which really was quite... More

We wanted an evening meal before boarding the sleeper south and ASH by deduction seemed the best option. On arrival it was obviously very busy and when we were asked if we had booked we thought we would have to find somewhere else. So first tip is to book. This is the restaurant for the Royal Highland hotel and like... More

The food is delicious. Looks lovely on the Plate. The waiters and waitresses are really nice... It is a little pricey but worth it for a special occasion.

Whilst I think giving this a poor score is possibly a little harsh, I just find this place a little disappointing. I have stayed in the hotel here a few times and have eaten here a few times and whilst I don't think the food is terrible it's just not that good. The restaurant gives of an impression that it...

We stayed in the Royal Highland Hotel next door and had our free dinner in the Ash restaurant. The food was really good, good portion size (I had room for a dessert) and the staff was friendly. The next day we had our meal there again and it was still good. It was pretty busy but we were served in... More

Liked the look of the menu and opted to pop in for lunch. Got seated straight away but waited 10 minutes before a combined food & drinks order was taken. When the starters arrived one of the orders was wrong. At this stage we were informed the chef was perparing the correct starter asap. The wait went on for the... More
