I have visited this restaurant a number of times for a quiet Sunday lunch, family treat or special occasions. I have never yet been disappointed, service is excellent, great choice of menu, to suit most tastes. Brilliant value for money, always well prepared and presented. Couldn't recommend any higher, going back soon.

Cannot see why this place is so highly rated. It's tiny for a start and was very full when we went. So noisy we could hardly hear ourselves talking but that's to be expected with a large party next to us. Menu is nothing to rave about and the food was distinctly average, think home cooking not fine dining. The... More

It is small but cosy and comfortable. We divided a special main of hot smoked salmon and red pepper risotto between us for a starter and it... More

Don't let the outside put you off- it looks as though it is part of the pub at street level- but it is not. Small, intimate restaurant which produced lovely food at really good prices. The menu might make you think that it services pub type food and i suppose it does - only with real style. The portions are... More

Have been to Urquhart's about a dozen times and have yet to have anything less than a perfect meal. The food is always really good, imaginative use of local produce, and portion sizes so big you will be so full you ache, but still want to keep eating, as it's to good to leave. Also the price's are extremely reasonable.
