“Poor”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 23, 2013 via mobile

We had a meal in the bar restaurant and we all went away disappointed. This used to be a favourite place for us but after this meal I won't go back. One woman on the bar and waiting the tables and although she was friendly and polite, she did only have one pair of hands! One if us had a steak, described as the 'flat iron' steak! Iron was about right. He chewed and chewed before having to put it back on the side of the plate. He had the worst meal but to be honest none if them were great. The creme brûlée was mocha and resembled eating from a cold jar of Nutella with a dark chocolate coffee taste. A real shame as this used to be a really nice meal out but we all said afterwards this had to be the worst meal we have had!

“Very nice surroundings.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 1, 2013 via mobile

Tastefully decorated surroundings. Lovely food. Well worth a visit. Sits high up on the hill to the north of Dingwall with lovely views over the surrounding countryside.

“A Deft Touch”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 18, 2013

Had dinner here when staying in Tulloch Castle and was absolutely amazed by the quality of the food. The menu is quite short but well balanced. However, the quality of the cooking and the presentation of the food far exceeded anything I had expected. Young but well trained and very helpoful staff serving. Good, well priced wine list. A trully excellent dining experience.
