Visited the New Inn for lunch on Monday 29th June. Had the fish pie which was served hot and was very tasty. Very impressed with the staff who were very polite, cheerful and efficient - service was very good - well done.

Managed to book a table at short notice and had a lovely meal. The special of the day, the roast pork, was really tasty and well cooked with a nice sauce. The 3 way cooked pork looked fantastic as did the steak pie. Had the orkney fudge creme brulee for dessert which was fantastic! Great food and good service, highly... More

I must have been here about 20 times over the years we lived in Ellon and even now we've moved out of Ellon, we still come back. Great little restaurant. The menu is extensive and there's likely something for everyone. The specials are usually a treat as well. Can get very busy though so it's probably best to phone ahead... More

I visit here for lunch once a week and never have any complaints. The food is tasty, well priced and there is always a good variety of dishes on the Specials list. The staff are friendly, knowledgeable on the various dishes and willing to give their recommendations.

Visited The Cornkist last Sunday after recommendation - always a good idea! The menu is extensive & the food is delicious. Well worth the wait - which is one reason it loses a point. The service was very slow, we were seated for about 50 mins before our food was eventually served, although the place was not packed out (and... More

Great decor, superb staff, and excellent food. The steak pies home made are the best you will ever taste. Fairly recent changes to the layout have been a great success. Always worth a visit.

I was here on Sunday 29th for lunch with my fiancé, my parents and my granddad. My dad and I had the beef olives which were very nice, the gravy they were in was very rich. The rest of my family had the roast beef which went down a treat. The only complaint about the food was that the veg... More
