Nice lunch

Went as a family of five, four adults and 1 toddler. We were seated swiftly as had booked, drinks order was taken pretty quick. Waiter came with drinks and left, we had to ask for our menus. All of our food we ordered was nice. Pretty standard fare but nice enough for lunch. Portions were generous... read more

My friend and I visited for supper one night, the food was absolutely fantastic. So much so, we visited again a couple of weeks later. Their burgers are excellent, their pies are lovely and their portion size is traditional home cooked - huge!!!!! All the staff are very friendly and nothing is a problem Great place

I've visited the cornkist recently on 3 occasions and the food and service has been excellent each time. The staff go out of their way to make you feel very welcome and the food is of a very high standard.

We visit this restaurant regularly, and are seldom disappointed with the food. But here's a tip. If you have a smaller appetite, don't go beyond the Starters on the menu. With a side of chips it will be more than enough to satisfy! Talented chef, great serving staff and always a "buzz" about the place. A lovely, friendly place to... More

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.

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
