Dined in this restaurant with my husband and the meal surpassed my expectations.The chef had created a new menu the week before and it did not disappoint. The combination of flavours showed imagination and skill. My husband and I had different dishes and each dish was as delicious as it looked.

This is a beautiful house in a wonderful setting. Everything about it looks plush, but sadly our lunch was not up to standard. Starters and pudding were terrific, but our main course of sea bass came without the risotto or the dressing shown on the menu. Two tiny boiled potatoes replaced what should have been served with the fish. We... More

Not really sure where to begin with this review.. My other half was treating me to a weekend away at Ardoe with dinner at Blairs. We had been looking forward to it and really just wanted to have a nice time of it. We were seated more than half an hour after our booking was due to start. Our starters... More

too many tables in the room , hence too close together. Time between courses was too long 30 minutes +. Main course of venison sausages was poor.....skins were tough. Other clients were complaining that evening also. No background music so people were homing into other clients conversations.

The food was excellent, there was just not enough choices from the set menu. The service was excellent even though it was busy and the food arrived quick.

Ate here with my parents and husband whilst staying at the hotel. We chose from the set 3 course menu and all enjoyed every course. There were plenty of locally sourced or produced options such as mackerel, pork, venison and seabass. The service was excellent with very attentive and charismatic staff. Atmosphere and decor were just right. Had a most... More
