“Very impersonal seating”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 7, 2013 via mobile

Having been a regular at loch green house had to try this,but after booking a table and finding our way there I was so disappointed the tables are so near each other that you could be dining with the people next to you as always food was great but I am afraid a first and last only because of the seating we didn't even have a sweet or coffee but again food lovely

Always a nice setting and food was very good. Service was adequate and menu a little disappointing. All in all its good for a change.

“oh it would have been a great night- pity about the food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 2, 2012

We went along with a party of five for a family meal to celbrate my wife's birthday. Oh dear what let down - two main courses returned (the replacements were not much better), deserts served incomplete and the mince pies (well unable to comment as they were not served).

What a disappointment!!!!

Not the usual Costley and Costley quality.

“Great food, bit of a dull atmosphere”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 29, 2012

Visited the Cochrane on a Friday lunchtime and was very pleasantly surprised by the quality of fayre on offer.
Their cullen skink soup is definitely worth a try as a starter. Everything tasted fresh and was well presented.
Staff were friendly and attentive without being a nuisance although the restaurant did lack a bit of atmosphere.
We'll go back for an evening meal as the food is delicious and see if the atmosphere is different.
