“Overpriced and lacking flavour”
Reviewed May 1, 2013

I have been many times to have dinner here., and to stay . It used to be far better years ago , and more intimate too. The food was bland, and not worth the money. I really think Lochgreen has lost its way . The best bet now for me is coffee and a scone. If you are going to charge top notch prices, then the food has to be right . Its also way to expensive to stay B&B

“A return visit to Lochgreen”
Reviewed April 30, 2013

A return visit to Lochgreen for us, this time for a family celebration. And once again, Lochgreen didn't disappoint. From the moment you drive into the grounds, everything looks immaculate and fresh. First impressions do count, and even the flower beds looked like they had been freshly raked! Thankfully, the rest of the stay did live up to expectations, and it's exactly this sort of attention to detail which will keep us coming back!

The staff were - to a person - very friendly throughout our stay, the rooms were spot on, and the food was well above average quality too. Breakfast went down well and we enjoyed the fabulous views and setting (as well as the aforementioned immaculate gardens). Any minor comments? Could do with a slightly expanded beer/lager selection to enjoy a warm evening outside (especially compared to the huge range of whisky & spirits on offer).

Overall, thoroughly enjoyed our stay and will definitely return again - hopefully soon!

“A dining experience”
Reviewed April 8, 2013

Although you could go just for the food and come away well satisfied with your choice, this restaurant provides the best possible dining experience for miles. Greeted the minute we'd stepped through the impressive entrance from the manicured gardens we were guided effortlessly through a wonderful experience of top class food, service and attention to detail. We start in the reception lounge with complimentary nibbles as we sit in front of a roaring fire choosing from a menu which had us switching and changing a couple of times before managing to settle on our order. A complimentary amuse bouche is served when we sit down in the dining room. The room is interesting, warm and reasonably busy for a cold mid-week night. Service was perfectly paced. Each course superbly cooked and presented. We finished with coffee served in a rear lounge overlooking more impeccable gardens.

Normally we go for middle of the road dining and prices This was a notch higher pricewise at £39.95 but despite of our middle range habits we both felt it was excellent value. Definitely THE place to go when something special is called for.

“One Terrific Meal!”
Reviewed April 8, 2013

Had a very good meal in the surroundings of this beautiful hotel. Staff were attentive and the food was very, very good. All plates were beautifully presented and not a complaint among the group. Children are welcome in the hotel and restaurant. I will return.
