Very well presented a delicious three course meal, which was tasty plentiful and served by polite waiting staff, the service was a little bit quick for me but as a lone diner on business, they provably thought I just wanted to dine and go. I would recommend this place especially for couples and special occasions.

Had a splendid evening on their Jazz night. Food excellent, service faultless and entertainment very enjoyable and not intrusive. Selection of wines matched the quality of food and perfect relaxing evening.

This was our second stay at the Lord Bute. We stayed for three nights and had three excellent meals in the restaurant. The quality of the food is first class and is matched by very attentive service. The choice on the menu is very good with something to suit everyone. Unusually, for such high quality food, the portions are not... More

Having never visited this area of Britain before, The Lord Bute was a perfect setting for accommodation, dining and a wedding venue. The Lord Bute is a fantastic place for those looking for a very intimate, romantic, private and simple/straightforward experience on their wedding day. Excellent setting for photographs, excellent customer service, outstanding quality of food and at very reasonable... More

Four of us had an enjoyable evening and especially liked the atmosphere and the pianist who played almost continuously through the meal. Perhaps a couple of little grumbles: we thought the menu was a little limited - no chicken or pasta but it did include rather "acquired taste" foods such as rabbit and guinea fowl.

The food here is quite good and reasonable priced though the restaurant decor needs some sort of modernising. It's all a bit OTT (twiddly and twee) Kind of faded glory. Clientele are mostly older though so I guess it sort of fits in. Service was good. Afterwards I spent the night and next morning being violently ill - maybe I... More
