    Food was excellent, as was the service. It was relatively quiet when we were there mid afternoon on a Thursday. 10% tip is added to bill which we weren’t advised of. We were going to leave a 10% tip anyway, so all was good. Prices are a bit expensive but worth it.

    Excellent service, really friendly staff and the food was great. We had the fish and chips which was cooked beautifully in a light batter, and the steak and sausage pie which was full of meat in a nice rich sauce. The salted caramel cheesecake was like a mousse like texture and to die for. They even catered for my dog who literally inhaled the food. Will definitely be back at some point.

    We had a fantastic meal last night with flawless service. Fish and chips portion was incredible with beautifully cooked fish and fresh chunky chips. This was followed by a lovely cheesecake and chocolate cake. The standout element worth mentioning was the service. The team were clearly busy, however managed service always with a smile. Thanks for a lovely meal! Lauren, Neve and Olivia from Glasgow x

    Lovely evening meal had at the Boathouse. Starters were smoked salmon, fresh and tasty, and the haggis stack which was great. Mains were steak, cooked perfectly and the chicken Balmoral which was delicious. Dog also had chicken, rice and peas... He left the peas but he's a bit fussy! Also had a snack at lunchtime there, lentil soup and the mushrooms on sour dough. Fantastic also!

    We booked to go at lunch as they had a set menu which was reasonably priced. We arrived for our meal and were seated straight away. Unfortunately, we could hear one of the staff cursing quite loudly. When we went to order, we were informed that the lunch menu was not available but we could still order food. The menu was very similar to the menu we couldn’t order from. We were told that due to the fryer not working and park regulations, this was the reason for the change in menu???? We ordered our food and when it arrived, the oven chips were very greasy. Not sure how this could happen. I found a bone in my burger and reported it. The waiter said ok, I’ll let the chef know. He came back and took our dessert order but said nothing about the bone. We paid the full price and left. A very poor experience.
