“Lovely lunch and good menu choice”
Reviewed October 31, 2013

Had lunch with friends and our two toddlers. Really liked the lunchtime menu with smaller lunch time portions of the popular meals which is ideal if you still want to enjoy your afternoon. Service was great and they were attentive to the children providing them with paper, crayons etc. to keep them amused. Would return again.

“Mixed reviews”
Reviewed October 20, 2013 via mobile

We ate here on a Sunday evening as a party of 7. When we arrived only one other table appeared to be occupied and, within half an hour, this group had left and, as far as I could see, we remained the only diners. This made for a strange atmosphere. Service was OK although a couple of errors were made with the initial drinks order and, although this was corrected, no apology was made.

The menu offers a good choice - although it doesn't seem to have any particular theme or style to it. Some dishes are clearly Scottish where others have a range of influences, some of which worked and some of which didn't. I started with Cullen Skink which was very tasty. Other starters ranged from Haggis Bon Bons to Calamari and the inevitable Soup of the Day. Generally the starters were good. Mains, on the other hand, had more of a mixed reception. The haddock with chorizo didn't live up to expectations and the 2 people who had duck with plum sauce found the accompanying huge mound of mashed potato (which had streaks of pink in it - not sure whether that was blood or the sauce but it didn't look attractive!) too much. The more straight forward choices, such as steak, burger or fish and chips, were much more successful.

None of us had room for desserts so can't comment on them. Prices were reasonable and, overall we had a good evening. Not sure that I would rush back though.

“Great Lunch at a reasonable price”
Reviewed September 29, 2013

I have not been here for some time and was pleasantly surprised by the contemporary decor and the lunch experience.
I ate with girl friends and the menu was plentiful starters ranging from £3.95 - £7.00 and mains around £10 upwards. There is also a light lunch option and children's menu.

Portions are a great size, well presented and good cheese board (although the chutney looked and tasted like tinned tomatoes!!!!)

Nice wine list. Service excellent staff very polite and attentive. Lunch was served till 230pm, however when we looked at our watch it was nearly 4pm!! Not rushed at all to move.

I think I will be visiting here in the not too distant future.

Thanks Fourmile!

“Disappointing family meal”
Reviewed September 18, 2013

Out for a family meal and ended up eating at different times as two meals where cold and had to be put back and everyone finished there meal by the time the other two meals arrived. Thought I would try the fourmile as had been to the ferryhill hotel but was very disappointed. Would recommend the ferryhill hotel but will not return to the fourmile.
