Spent the night in junior suite. Accommodation comfortable and well appointed. Food delicious. Staff very friendly. Breakfast sublime. Definitely will return. Special place to spend time. Highly recommended.

A beautiful restaurant with gorgeous decor. Only thing lacking is the staff knowledge and training. At times the staff appeared clumsy and uncomfortable (delivering drinks in particular.) Also one staff member not knowing what was in one of the dishes and told us they had no idea! One of our party of six was quite surprised with that answer and... More

What a fantastic experience ...... the house, although on the side of the street, is wonderfully decorated, very homely but modern with pleasant accommodation. Each and every one of the staff were so pleasant and nothing was too much trouble. We went for the tasting menu and to say I was full after dinner was an understatement however I wouldn't... More

Actually, many plates. If you want to dine sumptuously without being fleeced and conned by the Michelin star brigade look no further. Food, staff, wine, hospitality, inventiveness, quality, choice are just superb.

I'm not a newbie to the excellent food at MacNean house! As a family, we've had many beautiful Sunday lunches in the establishment. However, over the bank holiday weekend I took my boyfriend to experience Neven's beautiful food for the first time. As per usual the food was flawless, service was impeccable and the "MacNean suite" that we stayed in... More

We had tried for a reservation here some 4 months before visiting the area and were somewhat taken aback that we couldn't get one. We have been to many top quality restaurants - including a good few Michelin star restaurants - and had never found them to be booked out to this extent. Suffice to say we got lucky with... More

This is our second visit to MacNean House and it was another fantastic experience. The room, decor, atmosphere and staff were excellent but it really is all about the food. We had the taster menu with accompanying wine. With every course described by the server and the reasons for the wine choice explained by the sommelier it just added to... More

As the title suggests, wow, is the only word i can use for this place. My second encounter, luckily, to visit, taste, and meet Mr. Neven Maguire. Once again, has not failed any expectations, instead, exceeds them. The quality of the food is just something spectacular, words cannot describe. One must simply just book it and go. The individual tastes,... More

This is about the 10th time we have eaten in MacNean and in every occasion is has been amazing and is a total "Meal Experience " This time we went for the tasting menu and everything we ordered had three different versions of it on the plate like Beef, it came with three different cuts and each one has unbelievable...
