I cannot eat fish /seafood and made this known at time of booking. Everything from that point was taken care of! Taster menu came with my own personal menu varying in those elements I could not eat - with beautiful alternatives served. Each member of staff had clearly noted the requirement and were exceptionally discreet but highly efficient. The food... More

This place is hard to reach, and you really need to stay locally, preferably there - B&B including evening meal is reasonable given the high standard of food an accommodation. Delicious food, changing every day, and attentive service. If you like large portions then probably not the place for you, but I find the 5 course dinner, with numerous amuse-vouches... More

This Lodge is just south of Portpatrick somewhat off the beaten track. It was apparently used by Churchill to meet with the chiefs of staff due to its isolated location. It is in a wonderful position between two rocky outcroppings with a lawn going down to its own little isolated beach. Unfortunately it poured rain when we were there. It... More

Great food. Tasting menu just the right quantity of food. Highlights: slow roasted beef, yummy. Asparagus soup with truffle oil. Grape juice to cleanse palate, freshly squeezed. They used 2 kilos of grapes for the 18 diners. Very attentive staff. See also my hotel review.

We went expecting a michelin star experience. Does this restaurant still have a Michelin star? Surely not. Started well in the lounge with crisps and olives. Nice, if unremarkable, tiny portion of salmon mousse and then through to the restaurant. Began with a little ball of something with goats cheese in it, with a kind of sweet marmaladey relish. It...

Hotel: We stayed in the ‘South’ room at the Knockinaam Lodge which was spacious as was the bathroom and had views out onto the private beach. I chuckled when we later in the evening retired to our room to find that electric blankets had been switched on to warm our bed. Since it had been very windy and chilly all... More

Old fashioned, miniscule undercooked portions that we thought (hopefully) had gone out of fashion. No choice of menu. Very expensive drink. The taste of the food was sometimes excellent but things like frothy soup (my wife says it looks like someone had spat in the soup as in the last Black Adder series) were difficult to pallet and frankly serving...
