This was our first visit to the Whiski Rooms. It was my husband's university graduation and he'd always wanted to go so it was the perfect timing.

And it didn't disappoint! The food, service and atmosphere were all wonderful. Elegant and relaxed without feeling pretentious, and excellent value. We didn't feel rushed to get out for the next table, our servers were charming, and we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves.

(The only reason we gave 4 stars for the food instead of 5 is because we found the whisky cranachan dessert was good but a bit too sweet, and could have used more oats and less cream. Also hard to taste the whisky element at all. Beautifully made and presented, but maybe could use a couple of tweaks. Otherwise, it was all delicious and my husband said it was the best venison he'd had, and my veggie haggis was perfect.)

Thanks for a lovely evening!

We came here during our honeymoon and had dinner and dessert. It was lovely and staff were very friendly. The service was quick and the food was absolutely delicious and tables were spaced out to create a quiet dining atmosphere.

The chicken I ordered was so tough I was unable to chew it. The waitress apologized but no discount, refund, or alternative was offered. I therefore had no dinner to speak of and had to make another meal as soon as I returned home.

The young waitress offered good service and was polite and friendly, but I would prefer not to be addressed as 'you guys,' please.

Music level and general noise level way too high, had trouble hearing my friends.

We booked for 3pm for my wife’s birthday. We both ordered fillet steak. One medium and one medium rare. My wife’s was only just medium (quite rare) and mine was very rare and full of gristle and sinew. I mentioned this to the waiter who apologised and said he would get me another one. The second one came back looking so much better but when I cut into it it was cold as though it had been cooked straight from the fridge. The waiter again asked if everything was okay and I told him about the steak. He again apologised and asked if I would like something else. He recommended the lamb dish which I decided to have and that was delicious. By this time my wife had finished her meal though. It was a shame as we had both been looking forward to eating at Whiski Rooms. They gave us a reduction on our bill as compensation. Everything else was fine just a shame about the steak.

Really nice place for lunch on Saturday afternoon. Decent selection and something for everyone, not the cheapest main courses but the food was very good and decent sized portions. The staff were also very attentive and friendly. I had an issue with my Lobster Mac n Cheese (delicious) which they sorted out to my satisfaction. As the restaurant wasn't jampacked on the Sat afternoon we were not chased away after a few hours which made a huge difference.
