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

I ate at the Bartons restaurant, for entree we got the dip platter which was pretty good, but needed more pita cause there was so much dip left over. For main I ordered the chicken. 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

Looking out of the hotel window from Bartons Restaurant with the cooler autumn weather, we settled in for a business lunch. As soon as you enter the room you feel the coziness and relaxed atmosphere and were attended almost immediately. The menu is excellent and caters for most diners tastes with fine dining in mind. We opted for the specials... More

We had our anniversary dinner here recently, the food was superb, and even better was that virtually all the mains could be ordered as an entree size, great for me as I am a small eater and can't handle a main course size, extensive wine list, of course, but a lot offered by the glass, good for me also, the...

Good menu, plenty of options in styles and serving sizes between the café and the restaurant. We took a couple of very senior citizens and found some lovely and not too challenging meals for them as well as some more adventurous dishes for ourselves. All the meals were prepared well and were fresh, enjoyed by all.
