My husband and i have been here before. We chose to come for lunch. We were seated and advised someone would be with us to take our order - they came almost 10 mins later and drinks didn't arrive for another 10 mins - it is a Saturday, however, it wasn't busy as yet - why was service so slow? The starters arrived - my soup was lukewarm - my husband enjoyed his. The main courses were lovely as were the desserts, albeit my jam roll poly was a bit dry and looked as though it had been microwaved. We do like this place, however, there's always something that let's it down

We decided to give the Gatehouse a 2nd shot after our seriously disappointing 1st visit. We were pleasantly surprised this time! Staff were friendly and efficient and our meals were really pretty good and good value. Half rotisserie chicken was moist and tasty;rotisserie chicken tacos were spicy and fresh with guacamole, salsa and herbs but they needed thin fries or a salad rather than the chunky oven chips they came with. Burger was fine. My daughter ate off the very carb-heavy kids menu but she enjoyed a cute wee portion of nachos and tomato pasta. Desserts were really carefully presented. The interior is still soulless and seriously lacks atmosphere but we were impressed with the cooking and service this time in comparison with our last experience here.

Visited a few times and each time I remember why it’s not my favourite place to eat in Lenzie!
We had lunch and was really disappointed with how bland and over fried the food was. Decided on the tapas type food. No Halloumi fries but didn’t tell us that when we sat down. Cut into the deep fried mushrooms to a pool of water/oil, the hunter chicken bites was missing any chicken inside or maybe had been deep fried for so long it had oozed out and the roasted beetroot was tasteless and in no way had it ever seen a roasting tin!! The chicken satay was the only saving grace. Don’t think I’ll be back again.
