We stayed here for one night in Banff and lived it. Ample free parking, quick and friendly reception , and escorted to our room. We are the restaurant and the food/service was amazing. We definitely would stay here again.

Went here at Lunchtime. Good menu, and Stephanie who was serving us went out of her way to look after us. Our meal was delicious . I'm slightly dairy intolerant and she asked the chef for a dessert without cream. I wasn't disappointed, fabulous.

We returned to stay at the hotel and have dinner at this excellent guest lodge. I had the steak and ale pie and she had lamb, both superb. Wine selection is very good, dessert is a must have, even though when not in Scotland I seldom do. Service is good, views are nice at this relaxing and quiet place to... More

An old hotel with lots of atmosphere and a snug fire lit lounge bar where you can also eat. I had a beef dish here which I rate the best I have ever had. The food is always good and good value a nice romantic place for a meal.

We visited on a Sunday evening to try out the new menu and we weren't disappointed. Presentation and quality of the food was great and the service very attentive. We had shared starters, Herb Crusted Brie and a Chicken and Duck Liver Pate and to follow a Haddock and an amazing Burger. Very reasonably priced too. Thankyou Fife Lodge :-)

We have been to the Fife Lodge twice in the past week and planning our next visit this week. The Food is great - the price is great - the owner is great - the staff is great...so why go anywhere else? Take a tip - the Cullen Skink is top notch.

Four of us had a nice meal here so we booked again 2 weeks later for a birthday meal. Three of us ordered the same meal as before as we had enjoyed it previously but it did not resemble the same meal. I do not know if the chef was on holiday but it was not enjoyable. The worst was... More
