“terrible”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed September 29, 2012

I was surprised to read the good reviews before this. Our experience was terrible. The food was almost in-eatable and prices were astronomical. $34 for a main which I would be happy to pay if the quality met expectations. I ate lamb loin with some very odd green sauce.

“Did not meet expectations”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 21, 2012

The Lord Lyndoch setting and location were the restaurants biggest attraction. Service was average, however this may have been due to it being a busy night. If you are after a pub meal with restaurant prices then this is your place. Positive: Good local wine, location,

“Cosy but a bit Expensive”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2012

This is a very friendly restaurant in Lyndoch.
Food is varied and should suit all.
The price for the foods were a bit over the top beinmg in the low to mid $30's for the steaks. Although very nice the food does not justify that level of cost.

There is a cafe style restaurant in the front of the premises but am unsure if it offers a different fare at a different price level.

“Great Food Excellent Service :-)”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 23, 2012

The Lord Lyndoch is a fantastic place to enjoy fine food and wine. We spent a weekend at Lyndoch and went to dinner at this fantastic restaurant. The atmosphere was warm, welcoming and delightful. Will certainly book in again for a romantic dinner for two :-) Thank you for making our weekend very very special. Thank you from L & R :-)
