    Enjoyed our lunch and what we had was good. It was disappointing that the specially priced lunch menu shown on the website was not available. The only choice was the full dinner menu and that is not always what you want at lunchtime. I had two starters to compensate.

    The boathouse is a nice little addition to the site. Food and service all good. We thought that wine at £24 a bottle was a little pricey so we ordered beer. Glad we visited though.

    Cons- Don’t expect quick service, Macaroni cheese swimming in oil waitress said not normally like that and wrong side. Told will bring the correct side, never appeared. Still charged for a dish that physically couldn’t be eaten. Over £100 later kids were still hungry. My chicken balmoral was nice and fish was good but considering it’s on a lot with no other restaurants you’d excel in all aspects. It would make a lot of money if it changed a few things.

    Dreadful food and service - 45mins wait for a child’s starter of garlic bread. 2 other customers returned their food whilst we were waiting as one cold, and other chicken undercooked The dogs in the restaurant were served quicker and food looked not appetising

    Booked in advance and pretty busy for a Tuesday evening. Beautiful setting overlooking the Loch and really pleasant interior. Service was friendly and attentive. Food really tasty and freshly cooked. We didn't have it, but the fish and chips were enormous! Sticky toffee pudding for dessert lovely! Not over the top prices, adult meals with desserts and drinks for 4 came to £98.

    Lovely setting with really friendly staff. This was a return visit but the food was disappointing. Soggy batter on the fish, over cooked chips and watery tartare sauce. Is a dog friendly place which I’m all in favour of being a dog owner but barking was very noisy.
