“Not as good”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 25, 2013

Been here a few times now and have had some good meals, but be aware it is a seasonal restaurant, only open fully during the golf season, March onwards. The menu this time was varied if not a little limited however the Cullen Skink is very nice, I had the Haggis fritters with caramelized onions which came a little over fried (the haggis that is) 3 of the 4 of us had the sirloin steak which came smothered in a peppercorn sauce, I would have preferred to have the choice of whether to have the sauce or not. The drinks order and service to take the food orders was quick however the food took a little too long to arrive, as the previous reviewer stated at the end of the meal I had mixed feelings but it is entertaining watching the golfers finishing the last hole and the scenery is easy on the eye, I would advise you to give this place a go if you are not in a rush.

“Slow service.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 18, 2013 via mobile

My wife and I had lunch here today but by the end had mixed feelings about the experience. Our initial expectations were quite high due to the good reviews on here.

First impressions......were very good, tidy car park, nice clubhouse, and very bright and clean restaurant, which overlooks the golf course and hills beyond. The building is split into two rooms, one next to the bar catering for golfers, and another more for diners. Perhaps 10 tables in the restaurant.

Meet and greet....initially not approached by waiting staff, so we went to the bar and asked for a table for two. The barmaid called over the waiter and asked if a table for two was available. We seemed to be lucky, and got the last one, even though there were many empty tables without reservation tags.....we were then shown to our table, menus given, and drinks order taken. Neither specials or soup of the day were explained.

Menu....was very interesting, and varied, with typical and atypical pub grub. We chose the potato and leek soup and the cullen skink to start followed by a plate of cold cuts, and a chilli topped burger. Sandwiches were also available.

Service.....on the slow side. The restaurant was busy at the start, but tables remained uncleared for too long. The drinks orders were dealt with quickly, but the food seemed to take a while to be processed.

Food...was nice enough, everything was hot, and the soups were tasty. The burger for me was the highlight, but the chips were on the dry side. Portion size, was large.

Value....very good, 4 drinks and 4 courses for £27.

Overall....mixed feelings, I feel let down by the service, so I would not want to return, but my wife would.

“Another great visit”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 1, 2013 via mobile

Went for Sunday High Tea. Food and service was outstanding yet again. There was toast to start then a good choice of a main course followed by tea or coffee and not forgetting the delicious fresh scones and cream cakes - yummy

“What a great place to eat wonderful views great food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 3, 2013

What a relaxing place to eat, wonderful views and the food, it really was difficulty to choose from the classics to the little more exotic, the blackened cajon chicken with spring onion mash and bbq sauce was delicious. The staff are very attentive and watch what is going on as my glass of wine was just about finished I did not have to ask for another the very friendly and attentive waitress was on the case. Well worth a visit
