After visiting a friend who lives in the area I visited this hotel for lunch on his recommendation.

I had a steak and ale pie with chips and my friend had chicken fajitas. Both portions were generous and very tasty. The chicken dish in particular was huge; there must have been at least two chicken breasts in it. It was all piping hot and the service was faultless.

Nothing spectacular - just good, honest pub food – exactly what we needed.

Stopped here for lunch on the way to Aberdeen. So glad we did! Massive choice of menu. Had steak pie which was excellent. Steak was cooked to perfection and pastry was just the way it should be. Chips were great! My friend had a burger roll which was huge! Waiter was unobtrusive but very attentive and friendly. Will definitely be back. Intend to work my way through the menu trying everything! Be warned though...portions are massive. Sadly no room for pudding. Good food, great value for money...would highly recommend.

Have stayed here a few times in the last year or so. Great place, especially the girls in the restaurant, the food is very, very good, especially if you have a big appetite , which, unfortunately I do not.
However, excellent service , lovely and cosy with a nice fire in reception , will stay again, must thank Jill ( or Gill ) and Hayleigh for there great dinner service, two lovely girls that were a pleasure to meet,
Ps they are great fun as well
Will be back.

Stayed at the Northern whilst on business. The evening meal in the bar was really excellent with a good choice and service was spot-on. The clean room was on the ground floor with comfortable bed and very nice ensuite - powerful shower. TV a little on the small side.
Porridge was good for breakfast. Check out was quick and overall service was excellent so I will return when next in the area.

The room was a decent size & had been recently refurbished so it had a contemporary design & appearance. Ensuite was good with an excellent walk in shower. Bed very comfortable. Overall the room was good. Breakfast was also pretty good, quick with good service & decent quality. Ideal for a business stay & at £70 for the night a much better option than a Travelodge or Premier Inn. Recommended.

Recently stayed here, the room was adequate ,clean & tidy.The staff friendly & suited to this establishment.
The food was served quickly considering the number of people eating.
The clientelle appears to be mainly male ,working away from home. there were however one or two local people eating.
The Room Rate was on the high side for the standard.

We often pop into the Northern hotel for a bite to eat and it is always, without exception, very good. The staff are friendly and efficient. The food is always very nice, but be warned the portions are very generous! It's good, honest, hearty fare, served timeously.
I was therefore taken aback by some recent unkind comments about the hotel and its staff. It's not the Ritz, it's not the Dorchester - nor does it pretend to be, it's a small hotel in a small town that offers good food at reasonable prices, and we are very lucky to have the Northern hotel in Brechin. We've never stayed there. so I couldn't comment on the rooms, but the restaurant and bar are very comfortable.
