We stumbled in here for lunch after walking for about 3 hours. Staff were friendly and helpful - even offered to refill our water bottles when we were leaving to recommence our walk. We just had a light lunch but it was delicious and exactly what we needed. The lunchtime crowd was not all walkers by any means - the... More

We had a picture perfect wedding at Solitary. Organisation was easy, Lynn took care of everything including set up on the day. We paid a small additional fee to have our ceremony on the lawn. It was simple and elegant with a beautiful clear view of the valley beyond. We followed it with drinks and canapés on the lawn and... More

Turned up Saturday night at short notice and got a table, the staff were so helpful and on the ball. The food looked amazing and was matched by the excellent flavours. It was a feast for the eye. Thank you to the staff

We chose to eat here based on other reviews, but were a little disappointed by the service and the expensive cost of the dishes. Solitary has stunning views over the valley, but when we asked if our party of 3 could sit by the window, we were told all those tables were reserved, even though some never had diners for... More

Had a superb dinner at Solitary. Food, especially the fillet of beef, was cooked by Sebastian, Son and Head Chef running it with the help of his Parents, was exactly as requested, pink and melted in the mouth. Lynn, his Mother, helped in the dining room, and was efficient, delightful and kind. This is Family run Restaurant that ranks up... More

You come for the view of Leura Falls and it was quite stunning and this is a pleasant and relaxing way to appreciate the environment. Not fine dining but good for a relaxing lunch - a twice cooked goats cheese souffle and chicken and leek pie were tasty and enjoyable Probably better for lunch than dinner for the views. Difficult...

My wife and I stopped in here for Sunday lunch. I had the crisp skinned trout and my wife had the chicken and leek pie. Both were delicious. Very courteous service and a very pleasant atmosphere. Definitely recommended.

Lovely restaurant, beautiful view and seriously good food. Excellent service too. Although it's housed in a simple cottage it has a quiet, simple grace about it. And for the quality of the food it's not really expensive. This is a gem in the mountains.
