Went for a family meal at Bremner's at the Craigellachie hotel last night and have to say we were a bit disappointed. Having been there in the past, we were looking forward to our evening. We had booked a table for 8. Five of us ordered the haddock, chips and peas. When this was served (after a fairly lengthy wait) we were told that they'd run out of peas!!!!! In a hotel of this quality, I would not expect this to happen. Not only did we not get our peas, we weren't even offered another vegetable or salad in their place! To be fair, the food was of its usual high standard (not cheap though). We also had to go and ask for our side order of chips which had been forgotten about. We weren't offered, but had to ask for, the dessert menu but by that time we were really fed up waiting and decided not to bother. The sole waiter was rushed off his feet as the restaurant was busy and he had little or no help to run the bar either. I would go back as a couple - they seemed to get served more quickly! - as I know it really is a warm, comfortable and pleasant eating experience but surely on a busy Saturday evening, there should be more staff on duty!
