Went for lunch yesterday. There was a party of 8. Service very quick and efficient. Drinks order delivered quickly. As the food is all freshly cooked it takes a wee bit longer but not unduly so. The menu is fairly extensive. The quality is superb but the helpings are huge. A 3 course meal here would be almost impossible to... More

My god you need an appetite to eat in here. The portion sizes are very big. If you are eating here for lunch unless you have an enormous appetite have a main course only. There is no way I could have managed a starter with the main course that I had. My husband could not even have managed a starter... More

Took the family here last Monday for my brothers birthday. Arrived from neighboring town Peterhead and had no problems parking. Table of seven seated on entry as was pre-booked. Plenty choice on the menu and definitely something for everyone. We only ordered mains as the portions are quite big so did not feel the need for starter on this occasion.... More

Really nice restaurant great food and plenty of it . I can recommend the New Inn Burger and the battered haddock is second to none . The staff are efficient and friendly and nothing is too much trouble for them . If you're ever in Ellon don't pass this great restaurant !

I have been here a few times and enjoyed the food every time. I always have plenty choices on the menu which is full of pub dishes. Food cooked really well with generous portions. Would love to have tried pudding but just simply ran out of room!

We stopped off in Ellon a small town about half an hour drive North of Aberdeen. Parked in a car park alongside a very picturesque river and just across the road was The New Inn hotel and attached to it is their restaurant The Corn Kist. Three of us ordered very different meals, one scampi and chips, one beef stroganoff... More

I agree with some of the reviews that the staff are quite "gruff". But that's standard for the North east in my opinion. ;) But the food was amazing! I can't remember the last time we left a restaurant talking about the food for ages afterward. We did here. However, the 4 star instead of the 5 is due to... More
