The breakfast at the hotel was terrible!! A buffet of the cheapest oil-soaked ingredients you can ever find. A few bits of fruit for those that don't eat fried foods and the obligatory cereal boxes and juice jugs. You would get better in a bed and breakfast, Premier inn or greasy spoon. There is nothing Five star about this place... More

Wasn't impressed by the lunch time menu as it was only snacky type food salads etc unless eating a la carte. I had fish in a bun with fries, very small piece of fish hardly worth the price. My niece had a pesto salad which she didn't finish. She didn't comment on it. My sister had a salmon and prawn... More

Equestrian Centre situated in a most beautiful high spot on the outskirts of Bishopton, Port Glasgow. Going from strength to strength over the years and now with hotel accommodation, hair dressing salon as well as stables but I Personally have enjoyed drinks and meals, lunch and evening time and cannot fault in any way. Would highly recommend, also provide accommodation... More

Lovely venue with delightful staff. The food as always was excellent. The surroundings are excellent and very entertaining if there are some riders schooling their horses while you eat!! Service a wee but slow but the staff are very helpful

Food still very disappointing after third and last try. A shame because it's a beautiful place. A couple next to us sent their meal back because of the smell from their steaks only to be told it was fine by the chef. Two ladies at the next table left their burgers after one bite and the fish I ordered was... More

Just not worth the effort of going, lack of experienced staff spoiled our day. Service appalling- such a shame because it's a lovely place.

The family often go here as the food is very good and very reasonable. The staff are pleasant and helpful and the decore is quite upmarket but with warm friendly atmosphere. It a novelty to be able to watch the equestrian centre in full swing, if you are lucky.!

I stayed at the adjacent country club hotel and dined here. I wish I hadn't. The starter I ordered was Italian bread with balsamic and olive oil dips. What arrived was a day old slices of bread bought from a supermarket with two small pots of balsamic and olive oil, having to pour these on to my plate as the... More
