    Unfortunately neither duck dishes were available and we were not told of this when sitting down which if we had been would have saved time and disappointment. Other than that we found it excellent

    We went for lunch and chose paninis etc. 2 of the 3 were awful. In fairness they changed one but what came was no better. I was very disappointed with the quality of the food, expected better from a hotel of its caliber.

    Was a strange set up to get seated and pay but the food was overcooked and tasteless. The steak was more well done/medium than medium rare. The risotto was like soup and the other meals again over cooked the only one that was OK the chicken and noodles

    We sat outside as it was lovely weather. That turned out to be a mistake as the lady on the table in front of us chain smoked through her entire meal, with the wind blowing her secondary smoke in our faces. The waitress behind the bar was in a foul mood and had zero interest in answering a perfectly reasonable question about the menu. Our food eventually turned up cold, there was hardly any haggis with the nachos and my wife's humous was like a bland oily gloop. It's such a shame as it is an amazing setting.

    Dinner for 2 booked for 5pm. Excellent service throughout. Smoked chowder soup starter had more tatties that fish and was a bit thin for a creamed soup. Tasted fine though. Lamb main course was terrific in all respects. Ice cream desert rounded the meal off nicely. This was from the A la Carte menus as Table de hot very limited choice. Beer and Dodd drinks very expensive. Will eat there again at our next stay in hotel.

    The supplemented lunch offered was well below par. It was a cheap cut but if you are offering a cheap cut it needs to be cooked in a manner to get best out of the meat. The steak was tougher than shoe leather. However, The main issue was the total indifference from the staff when the poor food was brought to their attention. The person who took our money blamed us for not ordering the steak to be cooked 'well done' which she suggested was the best way to eat the meat. That is obviously nonsense. We were not asking to not pay for whole whole main course but a discount to compensate for what was not eaten (nearly all of the steak) would have been reasonable. Shame as the location is almost second to none. Oh and the pepper sauce was also very poor.

    Friendly staff. Good menu choice & option for early bird 2 or 3 courses - good value for money. Portion sizes are not the largest but if you go for 3 courses, you don't feel over full after the meal. Background music was subtle & tables spaced nicely

    Incredibly expensive given the level of service and quality of food. We were paying London prices and the experience was nowhere near the quality we've come to enjoy in the Capital. A very junior team with no one taking control / responsibility for a single table. Obvious lack of comms with the kitchen. It was my husband's 40th dinner - they knew this because we'd dropped the cake off that morning - and it was supposed to be special but was anything but. His ribeye (£28.50) was supposed to be cooked medium rare but looked like a shrivelled over-cooked supermarket steak. We sent it back and my husband was put off eating by that point. To add insult to injury, our 5.5 year old who had crudites and houmous to start followed by mac 'n' cheese was very sick over night and the following morning.

    Fantastic setting overlooking the river. Food lovely although there were a couple of minor improvements/suggestions: We were only told that the sole was unavailable when trying to place the order, after studying the menu for 10 minutes - a bit of a waste of time. My fried chicken noodle dish only had 5 pieces of chicken in it.

    Waiter took plates before all meals were eaten, leaning over people to serve food. Quality of the food was poor, potatoes not cooked properly, poor quality chicken. stick toffee pudding did not come with cream or ice cream. Gratuity added to the bill

    Looking forward to the meal but oh what a disappointment. Shown to our table by the entrance waiter, menus given told soup was parsnip. Had to ask him for a drink. He then bought our drinks. We ordered our food. Looking around at other diners it was dawning on me that this may have been a wrong choice. My husband ordered the over priced rib eyed steak, with a few chips, one mushroom and a grilled half a tomato . I ordered the cottage pie with extra broccoli and pancetta. The pie was very small and very salty. Certainly not worth £17.95. Not once did the waiter come and ask us “everything ok”? We finished and I asked for the bill, I did mention it was salty , no response, he took our plates leaving a knife and the chip pot still on the table. Looking at the bill there was a £6.60 service charge. Went to front desk to pay cash, I said could you take the service charge off please? He didn’t ask why? Said he couldn’t give us change so he ended up with a 40p tip. No apologies , nothing…. I certainly wouldn’t recommend this place, they just want a quick turn over for the biggest profit ….

    Food and service were both good and better than expected after reading some negative reviews. Many focused on the steak being tough. I didn’t order that, so I can’t vouch for it either way. You can get a steak almost anywhere, so I went for something I’d never had and seemed more local: lamb rump. It was quite tender and tasty. The haggis bon bons were excellent. The staff seemed a bit overworked but friendly and accommodating.

    We both opted for something from the Alla carte menu as the table hote was not to our taste. Had deep fried haddock & chips fine and hot with lovely crispy batter. Just had a plain ice cream and sorbet for afters. Service was excellent if not actually overbearing a bit.

    Worst steak we have ever been served. The steak was not edible. Apparently customers complain about this regularly. A total ripoff . On a positive note the service was great. This is our local and we won’t be coming back. Really disappointing

    The booking was easy and efficient and the table ready for us when we arrived. The ambience is generally good and tables are well spaced. The food was all good, but the portion size for my scallop starter and the cheese selection were meagre and not what I expected for the price.
