Visited Barony castle as part of a 2 night DBB package. We had a £23 per person allowance towards our evening meal on both nights so we took complete advantage of this, leaving not a penny to spare!
Booking - Make sure you book at time for your meal as it is very busy when the hotel is full.
Starters - Soup was very good. Haggis balls and mashed tatties comprised of 5 rather small deep fried balls of haggis. Although tasty enough, portion was way too small and probably cost less than £1,as opposed to the £7.95 they charged. Get the soup if you want a starter.
Mains - Salmon was delicious. A very generous portion with salad and potatoes. The Chicken Bang Bang was good too. A tangy chilli flavour and good portion. Fish and chips was fresh and the fish was huge. Only down side of this was that it was served in a horrible wicker basket. We noticed this on the first night so when we ordered it on the second night we asked for it on a plate. Saw a couple of other people asking for it to be put on a plate after struggling to get into it. Think the scampi and burger came in the baskets too, which to us, likens the food to pub grub. But we made sure we got our money worth and also ordered onion rings and garlic mash. Generous portions again.
Dessert - Only had 1 dessert over the 2 nights. Asked for raspberry and white chocolate cheesecake but got strawberry cheesecake. Would normally complain if I got the wrong thing but it was good so just ate it.
All in all, a nice meal which we enjoyed.
