“Good food but look out for the extras !”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 23, 2010

We ate here both nights of our stay at Tulloch Castle. We were on a Dinner Bed & Breakfast basis and at dinner quite a few of the menu items incurred a surcharge including £11 for a fillet steak. We feel that's a bit excessive when the fixed price was otherwise £15.95 for 2 courses or £20.95 for 3 courses. However, it was good ! We also seemed to mis-read the menu which we thought suggested that coffee was included but it wasn't and we were charged another £1.50 each cup. Breakfast each morning was very good - no extras ! Overall, the food is good and service was very attentive.

“Great meal in atmospheric setting”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 12, 2010

We dined at Turrets Restaurant as part of a two night stay at Tulloch Castle. The other Tripadvisor report (dated 3rd Feb 2010) isn't accurate and would appear to be for the "Green Lady Bar" in the hotel which also serves bar meals. We had a few drinks in the bar before our meal in the restaurant - this was on a Saturday night. When we left the bar it was full of happy diners and I cannot relate to the other review. Turrets Restaurant is in another area of the hotel. The menu offers a selection of around 6 each of starters; mains and deserts with fixed cost for two courses (£15.95) or three courses (£20.95). Really good choice of items made with local produce, food was freshly cooked and well presented. Option to pay a small supplement for certain menu items such as rack of lamb; steak or biscuits and cheese. Staff provided excellent service and made our 7 month old baby very welcome and provided a nice high chair. We really enjoyed our meal and considered it very good value for money, especially given the unique setting.

“this review is for the restraurant as i did not stay”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 3, 2010

there is no doubting the ambience, a floodlit castle atop a hill. If only the food, and service matched the setting.
although some local produce is on the menu, by and large the food is deeped fried. and average, it is really the staff that disappoint however, they tend to gather at the end of the bar, including the chef, and chatter when folk are needing served, or waiting for a drink. not only that but they use the nearby fire exit to go outsside to smoke. Joy; ignored by people, smoke and cold air surrounding my food. If the manager could stop this, it may make for a better experience.
