    Friendly and helpful staff. Food good with the exception of over-salted lentils in the venison dish: Difficult to remedy without substitution, so didn’t bring it up at the time and not a showstopper, anyway. Would be good to have some local beer on the drinks menu. Would dine there again, next time I’m in the area.

    We have been going to the classroom for a while now so our last visit they had a new menu. I was disappointed they no longer did my favourite dish, Cajun chicken burger. I opted for the beef burger instead and was shocked that the bun was black. It was rather unappealing. It’s about the wow factor, was the explanation.

    Excellent meal bursting with flavours, everything we had was so tasty, well presented and cooked to perfection. Portion sizes were perfect too, meant we had room for a yummy dessert. We also had more than our fair share of our 5 a day in the shape of amazing cocktails - one or several were enjoyed by us both, we couldn't get enough of the Bourbon Old Fashioned. Service was swift, always friendly with a smile and a chat, very attentive with our drinks order being taken at exactly the right moment and without prompting. Live music was provided by Hannah Anders supported by Ean J, great intimate night with excellent performances from both plus good craic and both performers chatting and mingling with all present, looking forward to more events like this, thank you :-)

    The classroom has changed in the last 6 months, in that, the menu is smaller(less choice) but still good. My starter,(flat bread) was huge, so much so that I took most of it home so as not to spoil the main. Service as before excellent and espresso martinis exceptional.

    We were a party of six and have visited the Classroom many times in the past. However this visit was disappointing. There were many things on the menu that were not available. When we did get out meal we all found that it had been over salted, considerably, which overpowered the food. We also found the dessert menu to be limited and disappointing. We are usually up in this area for a break at least twice a year and the Classroom was always where we would go for one or two meals. But the last time we visited in the summer we found that there were a lot of things not available on the menu - we thought this was a one off - clearly not! I am not sure if we will be back - such a shame. The staff were all very nice and friendly but the food is not the same as it used to be.

    The ClassroomResponded on 16 April 2022Hi JuneH, Thank you for leaving us an honest review of your recent experience at The Classroom, We have had some supplier issues recently and reduced our menu to removed the items we can no longer offer, I apologise this was not done before your visit. I will also pass your comments on to the kitchen regarding the over-salting of your dishes. We hope this will not deter you from visiting us again when you are next in Nairn. Thanks

    Starters: garlic flatbread, honey chicken tenders, hummus platter. All very nice but rather salty and would have been better to have bread with the platter. Mains: sirloin steak, beef burgers, veggie burger, cauliflower curry, kids sausages. All great meals, the curry was exceptional, steaks cooked perfectly, burgers very tasty and sausages ‘best ever’. Only criticism was ciabatta rolls were too hard so brioche would have been preferred. Service was just brilliant and couldn’t be faulted. Can’t wait to return. Brilliant options for veggie and vegans.

Barely a wait for our food and didn’t feel like we were rushed at all.
