This was our first to The Lord Bute and we were highly impressed! The staff were very friendly yet professional and the decor and atmosphere were both lovely. We chose from the very reasonable 3 course lunchtime menu which had plenty to choose from. All the dishes were beautifully presented of high quality and of generous proportions. Wonderful we will...

We honestly cannot recommend The Lord Bute highly enough, we had our wedding on 16th august and went without a hitch from first meeting to the next morning, Chris is absolutely amazing and his passion and experience really shine through along with the rest of the team- the service is outstanding, polite and so attentive to every detail and request!...

We have been going to the Lord Bute restaurant and hotel for many years now and must say we have never been disappointed. The rooms are always very good, clean, comfy, cosy and well equipped. The food in the restaurant is always very good and definitely not cooked for the masses. The service is always top notch and most welcoming.... More

Another great evening at The Lord Bute, food as always to a high standard and the entertainment really good, these special evenings are well worth looking out for. But the Jaz Evenings are the best value as you get great music and good food at the very best price.

On arrival there was no where to park, the restaurant was busy but set up for their own guests, tables were very cramped and service very poor, the food was obviously cooked for the mass of hotel guests and was awful,over cooked, over priced and should stay being a hotel and not try and venture into the fine dining niche.

Despite many visits to this fabulous restaurant - we suddenly realised we have never given it a trip advisor review (tut tut). It is my Mum's favourite restaurant ever - and so Sunday lunch ( or any other occasion) is always a good excuse to pay a visit to Lord Bute. The setting is stylish and elegant, and very well... More

From the moment we booked the wedding until the moment we left on Saturday evening we have been treated superbly. Nothing was too much trouble and Chris's character and passion shines through and helps make the day even more special. The quality and service is five star and his whole team are amazing! We have used the Lord Bute for... More
