    The food was very good, the venue was lovely and the staff were super friendly, my only complaint was the (around) 10% service charge wasn't enough so please feel free to tip great service a little bit more than the flat service charge. I'm sure they should be paid more and it's always best practice to tip well someone who is going the extra mile while they serve you food lol I think this is the third or fourth time we've been, and we will be going again, soon. Thank you campaign room bistro, you did not disappoint.

    Excellent meal Last night. The varied menu offers something for everyone,with the food quality being exceptional. It surpassed previous experiences in 5 star hotels and fancy restaurants. We will definitely return when next in the area. The staff were a delight and compliments to their talented chef.

We also waited some time for main course think I have said enough

    I have used the Bistro on many occasions and have never had a bad meal, choices are perfect and the food is excellent. Try the soups they are special. Last visit included a small child who was catered for. The room can be a wee bit smokey due to coal fire but this seems to have improved latterly. Service and staff very friendly.

    As this was booked as we were staying in the hotel our expectations were high. The menu is enough for a Bistro and fairly good choices. My hock starter was lovely, I would have preferred normal bread rather than toast. I had roast chicken and it was delicious, the sauce was peppery but I like that. My partner had fish and chips but was disappointed with fish, lacked taste. Maybe not cod or haddock. The apple crumble was very good, custard and ice cream!

    The drive up to Carberry Tower mansion House sets the scene for a most enjoyable visit. The welcome from staff is friendly. The Campaign Bistro is welcoming and cosy with a warming atmosphere from the decor and wood burning stove. The food is well presented and so delicious. At our table we had the Sunday roast, roast beef and all the trimmings, Venison bolognese with tagliatelle, Seafood platter with chunky chips and one Crannachan for dessert. The portions are good. It was delicious and we talked about it the rest of the afternoon. I would definitely recommend the Campaign Bistro.

    The selection of music is totally out of keeping with the style of the room (20s/30s empire, days of the raj). At points was really quite off-putting, and too loud.

    My husband had the burger and chips and was delighted. Thick patty and heated bun along with a generous portion of cheese and bacon. I had the spaghetti and it was good but way too much sauce. The service was fantastic.

    Carberry is a beautiful place and having coffee upstairs is a pleasure. The staff are so pleasant and helpful. The only downside for me is the menu which doesn't really cater for non meat and fish eaters.

    The service here was very good, friendly efficient. The food was tasty! Lovely leek and potatoes soup with caramelised onion. Baked camembert, A lamb casserole, which was very much enjoyed and a simple but very tasty spaghetti putanesca. And the peanut brownie was gorgeous, rich but not too sweet. I would eat here again.

    The Campaign Room restaurant was beautiful, the staff were great and the sea food platter was delicious and really generous portions. Everything was cooked perfectly so that I could pick out individual flavours in the beer batter on the fish and the dark meat crab fishcakes. We will definitely be booking again to come to one for the Festive Tea. I am looking forward to seeing the Drawing Room. Carberry Towers is a fairytale hotel.

    Very disappointed with our lunch today . The soup was ok but the butter served with the bread was brick hard so didn’t enjoy it as couldn’t actually spread it on our bread. Main course Fish & Chips how can you get that so wrong the battered fish was so greasy & heavy I couldn’t actually eat it. Such a shame for a lovely place , service was ok no fault with that and thanks for removing the main course from the bill. But doubt we would return back here after this very disappointing experience.

    At The Campaign Room we have had the best burger ever….. the estate wagyu burger was of the best quality and taste; the other choice - the Cod-filet - was as even tasteful. The service was outstanding. The only recommendation we can think of is to change or alter the white sealing which doesn’t seem to fit within the whole ancient atmosphere.

    We enjoyed a lovely Sunday roast for my Mum's 80th birthday. The chef met our advance request for beef as the roast if the day. Appreciated the personal touch with the dessert and sensitivity to our party's individual needs. Thanks for arranging the weather too!
