Wow – we booked into this hotel because it was close to the Crawick Multiverse which we wanted to visit. We had read the reviews on the quality of the food but its fair to say the actuality surpassed all our expectations. The review that follows covers the restaurant only - I have reviewed the hotel in a separate tripadvisor... More

Stayed one night on the way back from a holiday in Scotland. Very friendly welcome as soon as we arrived. Our room was lovely with a beautiful view of the river. Dinner that evening was of a very high standard. Presented and tasted beautiful from the pre starter through to the coffee and choccies. Would highly recommend.

Blackaddie Restaurant is a must for anyone who is interested in fabulous food. Many of the ingredients in the dishes are sourced from Ian's own garden and he makes the flavours sing. The two dinners I enjoyed at Blackaddie are in my top all time five dinners - superb! Each dish is beautifully presented but tastes even more stunning than... More

We had two meals here, one table-d'hote and one fine dining. Both were splendid but served in a pleasingly down to earth manner. The chef is clearly very enthusiastic about what he does and it shows in every detail of the menu, presentation, texture and flavour of the meals. After the meals he dropped into the restaurant to chat briefly.... More

We had booked Blackaddie Country House as a one night stop over on our way back home from the Scottish highlands. After negotiating an industrial estate on the edge of Sanquhar we were warmly welcomed by the owner chef's wife. Jane was very friendly and helpful. We expected very good food but even our high expectations were exceeded. Owner chef... More

You can see from my previous reviews that this is my favourite restaurant and my latest visit has only strengthened my loyalty. We ate from the fine dining menu this time and have already booked our next visit when we'll be trying the gourmet menu. I'll certainly review that, but in the meantime, I've added some photos to tempt you... More

We were fortunate enough to eat in this special restaurant on two consecutive nights. On the first night, we had tartar of sea-reared rainbow trout with saffron and gin mayonnaise with beetroot sorbet, followed by a carrot sorbet with was imaginatively and delightfully decorated.

What a great meal again last night - a full dining room of people discussing the amazing combination of flavours in each course. This is a special place for people who truly appreciate fine dining. I think I can let the pictures do the talking this time...

A last minute decision, we were lucky to get a room but so glad we did. We stayed in the Pheasant room - huge bed, beautiful bathroom and food views. The food is amazing, we enjoyed every mouthful. We would highly recommend this fab place.
