The atmosphere and the food here is lovely. David did a great job of making sure we had a nice evening. The chicken wings and the mussels went down a treat. I also finished my wife's fish and chips because I'm greedy. They tasted good too. We will be going back for sure.

I visited on Friday night with 4 friends for an informal dinner and drinks. From the outset we received a friendly welcome with our drinks being topped up frequently. The food, including desserts and coffee with fudge was delicious with clean plates all round. A wedding was going on in the hotel that night but this didn't affect any aspect... More

Visited restaurant with friends to take coffee but disappointed with customer service. Coffee served was half full cup after waiting for 10 minutes. We then had to request for a full cup. Had to remind bartender that we were waiting for coffee. Maybe expected more due to the good reviews but waiters seem to be snobs. Hotel in an excellent... More

We were lucky enough to get a last minute booking for brunch here last Sunday. The restaurant was quiet to begin with and then got exceptionally busy. Service dipped slightly towards the desserts, however this is understandable given that by that point the staff were working flat out. We opted for the Sunday roasts - roast beef and fish of...

Sitting outside on the patio, overlooking the river, in beautiful surroundings. What could be nicer on a Friday than a quiet lunch, with first class service and beautiful food. We had mussels and a king prawn and mango salad. Very reasonably priced. Have visited many times for coffee and for a family celebration and have never been disappointed. However, you... More

Arrived at last minute without booking and were shown to two rooms which were available. My wife chose one overlooking the river. The room was large and comfortable and the bathroom was stocked with fragrant toiletries. The hotel and rooms are furnished with antique/old furniture and has the feel of a large country house. The outside seating area is delightful... More

We visited Banchory lodge last year and had a few fantastic meals and an over night stay. This year we went for lunch. Although my husband and Mother in law had a lovely meal mine wasn't as good. The Cullen skink was under cooked and the prawn cocktail was very very tangy. I didn't want a main meal and didn't... More
