Food was delicious. Steak was cooked to perfection and the steak pie was delicious. The mash had the most amazing flavour

Love the Whiski Rooms food always great. Service spot on and although a wee bit more expensive than some eateries the food is excellent and worth paying a wee bit more for.

I ordered chicken and avocado salad as a main but it came with no avocado at all. However the chicken was nicely cooked.
My daughter had the four cheese macaroni which she said was nice.
The service was fairly average although they may have been training new staff as well

Brilliant whiskey tasting experience with the Flights. Get to compare and contrast different ones. Service friendly. A bit cheeky and very informal. Food ok. The real star is the whiskey!

Food and service were both excellent. Disappointing are such a lovely meal to be told we can’t pay in cash and they didn’t accept American Express! The attitude of the member of staff dealing with this really let the whole experience down for us.

Love, love, love the Whiski rooms.
Cannot praise them enough.
The food is simply faultless, and the menu is small but perfectly formed.
Will definitely be back (again)

This wasn’t really a whiskey tasting experience. The waiter literally brought over the whiskey selection we’d chosen and left it on the table with a piece of paper describing the four whiskeys and left. Fell short of my expectations. Food was quite good.
