Reviewed May 26, 2010

Found Chapelbank by chance and was very glad it saved us from having to stay in one of Forfar's less salubrious establishments - it's a lovely place and deserves to do well. The manager, Elizabeth and her team could not do more to be helpful and welcoming.

I have for the past 25 years worked in the hotel industry mostly as a head chef of several rosette awarded kitchens in the north west of England, I have always been dismayed when eating out in Forfar, the lack of a geniuinely good Restaurant serving an imaginative and fresh menu has been apparent and needing addessed for a long time!!

Well finally Forfar has a good little bistro to shout about!! Chapelbank is a friendly, absorbing venue, serving good home made and prepared food with some nice imaginative twists, the food was excellent, far far better than anything being served in other hotels and restaurants in the town centre( you know who you are!!) the service while a little slow was relaxed and very friendly with attentive staff!

Please dont be put off buy the comments of a vegetarian this has been the best dining experience I have had in Forfar in 20 odd years!

Decor is crisp and vibrant offering a modern yet comfortable feel, the prices are also very good in the usual market place and offer good value for money against dearer and much poorer competitors!

I find it hard to beleive that in 2010 a 'bistro' wouldn't have thought to include a single vegetarian dish on its menu. However, having enquired when the table booking was made, we were informed that several options would be available, mainly by not putting chicken in the pasta dishes, or a vegetarian skewer. Sadly on the night, there were no vegetarian skewers left. So pasta it was. It wasn't nice, but at £9 a bowl, I forced it down. Would have had a desert to fill me up, but I really just wanted to get out of the place asap. I found the whole experience very pretentious. They won't ever see me again. I'd have rather gone to MacDonalds.

From initial conversation with Elizabeth to departure nothing was too much trouble and only a short walk to work! Customer Service second to none!

Excellent room and in my view as a lady travelling on business I was made to feel welcome from my arrival until my departure!

English Hotels have a lot to answer to as this place is excellent value for money.

The food in the Bistro was also fantastic to say the least. I would certainly stay again and I am fussy!! Thank you to all!

I only hope that I get the opprotunity to stay again and in the same room! Love it - felt like home from home!

The only downsides were bath towels need to be sheets and the breakfast could have been cooked longer as i prefer crispy bacon!!
