“Briiliant Baby Shower Function”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 24, 2014

I held a friends Baby Shower here on the 23rd of August. They couldn't of been more helpful through the whole process. From booking their function room to settling the bill at the end.

It was held in their function room which is down the stairs away from the restaurant. We asked them to put in a small buffet for all the ladies who were attending. They catered our every needs, as when we booked the buffet menu wasn't very suitable for my pregnant friend. We sat down and arranged a menu that my pregnant friend and vegetarian friend could have.

They had set up the room beautifully as well.

All in all could not fault the day. Thank you all so much.

“Never fails to disappoint.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 24, 2014

Myself and my partner have visited The Bothy a number of times now and once again It was fantastic, so much so I felt the need to leave a review. The food was faultless, I ordered the salmon fish cakes with noodles - delicious! Our servers were attentive as always, if I remember correctly their names were Jackie and Alisha... Thank you for a lovely evening! Great food, great service, I can't recommend this place enough.

“Nice surroundings - Food very Average - Service Poor”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 23, 2014

The food and the service are moot matched with the swanky inviting interior which the bothy has. The service when we went was well bellow parr. The servers appeared to be flustered and lacked any chat let alone a smile. My coffee came and the milk cup was horribly dirty with a long female hair and what looked liked coffee grindings. The Club sandwich which i had was bland - not like the food we used to have in the bothy 4/5 years ago. all and all not impressed - as somebody who lives in perth i wouldn't personally go again

Good afternoon and thank you for taking the time to write about your recent visit to The Bothy. I was quite shocked to read of your experience and would like to firstly apologise.

Our baristas are trained to a high level to ensure our hot beverages are perfect every time. It appears we have let ourselves down on this occasion. I do appreciate both positive and constructive feedback as it gives us an opportunity to look at possible issues that need to be addressed.
We receive wonderful feedback from our guest's daily regarding our selection of coffees and the way we prepare them, especially with our free scone offer!

Please feel free to contact me in person to discuss your experience in more detail.

Many thanks,

Jackie Fergus
