“Simply the best”
Reviewed February 10, 2013

We have been visiting this establishment for very many years now and it has to be said it is always a pleasure to visit a place like this where the quality of food and service is second to none – everyone visiting here is made to feel like a VIP. The bar lunches are really good with a nice varied menu that caters for all tastes – the quality of the cooking is first class and the prices are extremely fair so the end result is a good value for money experience. Wine by the glass may seem a bit pricey but the quality is top notch – and you know the old adage – you pay for what you get! Colin and his staff work exceedingly hard to maintain very high standards and Glenskirlie House thoroughly deserves all the accolades that come its way.

“Quirky and tasty”
Reviewed February 7, 2013

We enjoyed our burger n chips which came arranged on an attractive board. A half pound of excellent beef cooked to order. Home made chutney. Artfully stacked giant onion rings. And tasty hand cut chips presented in a miniature metal deep fry basket.
The food was lovely although the onion rings could have done with a dab with a paper towel as they were a touch greasy. Extra marks for buttering then grilling the cut sides of the roll although the roll was cold by the time it got to me.
The assortment of tiny puddings hit the spot. In each case (and we tried four) they were rich and tasty and just what they should be. Well done, Glenskirlie House!
Tea after was a delight. The light from the bookcase opposite illuminated the fronds of mint leaf in deep green liquid in my glass theiere. Drinking from the Rosenthal cups and saucers was a real pleasure.

“probably one of the best”
Reviewed January 25, 2013

The family had organised a special night for my wife who was celebrating her 65 birthday, we had been here before but many years ago as we have been staying abroad.
I have to say it was even better than I had remembered, as the introduction before the meal, the attention to detail, and the meal and service, were better than first class the food was excellent both my wife and I had the beef, medium rare and it was without a doupt the best beef I have ever had, an excellent night with no complaints whatsoever.
