We were at the Cornkist for a birthday lunch on a Saturday and had a lovely experience. There were four of us in the party and one in particular is quite fussy! The staff were really attentive and offered an alternative from the evening menu which went down a treat. There was a good selection of specials on offer and... More

I visited The Cornkist today with the intention of having lunch there with my dad. When I arrived and asked for a table for 2 (my dad was running late & would join me shortly) I was shown to a table in the far corner, quite close to 2 other tables with other diners seated. After about 5 or 6... More

Really good pub grub served exceptionally well. Set in the town of Ellon with plenty parking at rear of the property and across the road in a public car park with excellent walks along the river Ythan.

Stayed at the hotel ...food was unadventurous but tadty neverthless .. Huge menu ...have no idea how the kitchen could deal with that range. Went for the specials .....tasty enough ... Haddock gougons were tasty but not fried long enough so not crispy ....but that was my only quibble .... Nice staff delivering good service ....

Third visit to the restaurant and the food never fails to impress. Portions are generous but quality is never compromised. Staff are very friendly and service is well paced. The only down side is that due to its popularity it can feel quite crowded, depending on where you are seated. Booking is advised because it is so busy.

As we were in the area my wife and I dropped in here for lunch. My wife had a beef curry and I had Scampi and chips with a side salad. Service was quick and efficient. Helpings were on the large side and we certainly had no problems with the size of the portions for the price we paid, good... More

Nice meal had by all but wasn't overly impressed. It was nice for a moms night out as we had hot food that we didn't have to cook, but wasn't anything special.

Come here regularly as it's halfway meeting point for friends, portions are big but struggle to find much healthy options as cheese and cream are used in many of the choices so often opt for the salad which is very good with lots of coleslaw , fruit etc which I love.
