Went for a birthday treat and unfortunately it was a disaster. The interior of the restaurant is lovely but the refurb of the seating has spoilt it. I have eaten here quite a bit previously as I use the leisure club and really liked the menu. Unfortunately this has been changed with a very limited seafood selection and more of... More

This restaurant is in a fantastic location but we found the food and drink expensive for this type of hotel. We ate at Duck Bay marina the second night and the price difference for similar food was substantial.

We use this restaurant when we stay at Cameron House each year. This year they had a captive audience due to the Cameron Grill being closed for renovations which also led to it being difficult to book a table in the evening. The views over the lock are fantastic and the décor is very "New England" and comfortable. We did... More

Had dinner here at the weekend, it was the first time we had been in since the place had been renovated, we enjoyed the new menu and feel as though there is a lot of variety, staff were brilliant, we were looked after by a young girl called Sophie who made our night wonderful, she was very polite and went...

We ate here on the last night of our stay at Cameron House. The new decor is good but I sent back my starter (supposed to be bruschetta but was soggy bread) and my main (listed as pulled pork burger but was in fact beef burger with the tiniest amount of pulled pork which was hardly noticeable). Sure, after complaining... More

The restaurant itself is beautiful - relaxed interior with stunning views. The staff were lovely, extremely attentive and friendly. The food however, left much to be desired. From a hotel with such a fantastic reputation, and with price tags for dishes well above average, the food really needs to be something special. As the gluten free bread, I was told,... More

We felt this restaurant had improved since our last visit overall. The tables are now individual rather than bench seats which were too close together. The new menu was very attractive and whilst prices are a little higher than average, with the view/ location, the ambience and service we thoroughly enjoyed the evening.

The menu is trying to be something it's not! The food explanations far out weigh what arrives on the plates, I had the scallops which sounded great ended up 3 small morsels on the plate which had been well over cooked and were charged out at just under £12.00, this was followed by a smoked salmon with crab and avocado...
