    Food was excellent, big improvement from our last visit. Staff very cheery and friendly. However when you only have a small number of wines available by the glass it really shouldn't be difficult to ensure all are in stock. Place was not particularly busy but service a bit slow. The 2 for 1 offer represents great value, just needs a bit of fine tuning to get it perfect.

    Staff were fantastic. Very friendly and helpful and great with my wee boy. Food was gorgeous. There was a wedding reception in same area of building so was very loud with live music and guests arriving close to our table so we ended our night early without getting pudding as couldn’t hear each other speaking. We will return for a meal on a quieter night. I would suggest letting other people know if there is stuff going on like that

    The food was a strange mixture of good-ish value and very expensive for what was provided. The sea bass was £17.95 and was a smallish single fillet of fish with some cabbage (the cream sauce was very nice), but this is expensive. The Korean Fried Chicken was not a Korean Fried Chicken and was simply a chicken breast which seems to have been fried in some way, pretty bland as was the rice. Any KFC I have had elsewhere has never been bland. Having said that the steak pie was great value - full of meat and tender. Won't be rushing back.

    Mother’s Day meal for 6 adults and two teenagers. The food was excellent and the service was good - friendly and relaxed. Nice menu at a reasonable price, nice decor only downside was that it was a bit draughty. I was fine but my elderly mother felt it was cold.

    My third time eating at the Cardross Inn, and again it didn’t disappoint. Only one thing I will say though, and I did point it out to the very helpful waiter, the children’s menu had pasta bolognaise, i assumed it would be penne, or a similar pasta, but it was linguine , definitely not suitable for a 5 year old But hey, it was lovely anyway

The atmosphere is very modern, homely, clean and fresh. The staff were very attentive and friendly. Will definitely be coming back!!!😊👍

    Pre- Christmas lunch did not go as planned! Started off with a drink dropped onto me, the wrong starter brought and the beetroot vegetarian dish poor! We did mention this but still paid full price ! Meals a bit pricey for what you get.... Nice surroundings, good atmosphere and service ok but left disappointed 😞

    Restaurant was quiet, attention prompt. I opted for traditional turkey. Plenty meat but could hv been a lot warmer. Roast potatoes and vegetables reasonably warm. One of our party had ordered the salmon starter but it was too salty so left the bulk of it. The sweet I ordered was a take on the traditional Christmas pudding. It was quite tasty but I would have preferred the real thing.

    The place was very quiet when we were there which is unusual for this time of the year. Staff were busy wrapping gifts all over the place which wasn't particularly inviting. However, the food was good and we will return.

    Always loved the Cardross Inn. But on this occasions the food was OK, nothing special... and unfortunately the service was really quite poor. One of our main courses was missed, which arrived once the rest of us had almost finished but this wasn't communicated till we went up to the bar to ask where it was. No offer of more drinks or desserts and we had to go up to the bar to ask for the bill. Considering it was a Sunday afternoon/early evening and it wasn't busy, I'm surprised by the lack of customer service. We were celebrating two birthdays, so the last thing we wanted to do that evening was complain - we paid the bill, left & continued celebrations elsewhere. Disappointing visit & now I'm unsure if it'll be the preferred place to go for meals out now.

    Had meal in Cardross Inn with family. The food was nice and tasty. Price wise it was average. The only downside to our visit was the service was a bit slow considering it wasn’t too busy and also a bit chilly could do with some more heating on.

    We had the Sunday Roast which we felt was disappointing the Roast Beef was like shoe leather but we feel it was the meat not the chef, roast potatoes were hard and dry and our portion of veg was poor. I had the apple and rhubarb crumble which was very sweet.
