I have been wanting to have a meal at Bartons for years and I am glad I finally got to go. Really love the scallops from the new menu which was only introduced a week ago. Beautiful flavours and whilst I wouldn't normally eat scallops with chorizo at the risk of overpowering them, wow, it was beautiful. I have to... More

Came here with the family for a Friday night, was very busy so the main restaurant was full with lots of large tables but we were seated in the section just off the restaurant which was much quieter and pleasant. Great menu choice and we ate here using the Split the Bill vouchers which gave 4 of us half priced... More

Had a great lunch with a group of 60 + guests. The meals were fantastic and served promptly after ordering, considering the large amount of people to be served. The maitre' d was a bit grumpy with no personality, however the wait staff were the exact opposite, warm and friendly.

I was treated to a Mothers Day lunch at Bartons Restaurant, and was certainly not disappointed! Classy, fine dining without the exorbitant prices. Large menu, which made choosing difficult, as all on offer sounded very tempting. One plus is that most of the main courses are available as normal or small serves - steaks were available in several weight ranges,... More

Where do I start? After booking Mother's day brunch (and having received the customary confirmation phone call) we arrive to blank looks from the staff. "Oh, you're in the restaurant" so we walk to the restaurant, "no you're in the bistro" so we walk back to the bistro. How hard can it be? It was like a Seinfeld episode, "you... More

Unfortunately the Caledonian Hotel meals vary from night to night. Most of the time they are nice but sometimes they are below average

It was over cooked, my vegetables were under cooked and were very hard. It also came with two triangles of puff pastry - I have... More

Mid week family dinner Great menu Extensive wine list Great service We mostly dinned from the temptations menu, being smaller serves of the main menu. It was a great way to try lots of things. The temptations menu comes with a glass of wine. However some ordered from the main menu - especially the steaks - done and delivered exactly... More
