“Overpriced”
Reviewed August 8, 2013

Booked here for family dinner to celebrate anniversary, as we held our 25th anniversary party at the hotel last year. We also stayed overnight in hotel and had breakfast next day.We were all looking forward to our meal as we loved the ambience of the hotel last year. The starters were very average and presentation a lot to be desired. Two of us had beef strips with noodles which were lovely, but others had the duck with chorizo and spring onion mash and felt the duck was a bit over cooked, again presentation was poor. Only two of us had desserts,mine was best part of meal all night,poached pear with chocolate profiteroles(best I've tasted).When you look at items and prices on menu you are anticipating something amazing, but to be honest we would have got better in Glasgow city centre and for much cheaper.It is a shame as the hotel is lovely.

“Great all round”
Reviewed August 5, 2013

Lovely clean restaurant, kitchen visible which is good, we had the "high tea" 3 courses reasonable choice, we settled for soup (chicken & leek) followed by steak & ale pie served with boiled potatoes, carrots, peas & small but sufficient piece of pastry, finished with a gorgeous scone with clotted cream & jam, tea/coffee all for £11.95each. The first waitress was a bit miserable in that she didn't smile, but Natalie took over & was much more pleasant & new how to smile which added to our relaxed pleasurable meal, so thanks for that Natalie.

“Great Restrauraunt”
Reviewed July 26, 2013

What a lovely place to visit. A very extensive lunch time menu in a very nice setting. The prices are so reasonable for what you get. The afternoon tea my wife had was very impressive at only £7.99 and she had 4 sandwiches a pot of tea scone with jam and fresh cream and a nice selection of cakes. I had a fillet steak sandwich with onions chips and side salad. Delicious!!!!!!!!!!! The staff are really good and so efficient. Really good for Strathclyde Park and it seems to attract a lot of return visitors.
