It has a very friendly atmosphere. We were there for lunch and we all thoroughly enjoyed the food. As for the drinks, I ordered fresh orange juice and was very impressed that it came with fresh orange slices and ice. A small touch but very nice.

Very average food and quite a small plate of it. For a sunday roast you’d expect more than one slice of beef.

Lacking in atmosphere. Steak and Ale Pie didn't have very good meat and the meals were lukewarm. Disappointing.

Lovely Sunday lunch with my family. Roast beef was beautiful, came with lovely roasties and Yorkshire pud. I personally would have enjoyed more vegetables. Overall excellent, I have bought another voucher to go again.

Excellent lunch for 5 friends. We had the Saltirecard menu which was very good value and had a wide variety of options on the menu. The portions were large for the main course but not so big for the starters. I will be back again and would recommend to all.

The restaurant was very quiet, with only 2 tables and us when we arrived. It was very clean and tidy and we received a friendly welcome. The staff were very polite and efficient. The haggis and black pudding was very good and the scampi was also good. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Albyn to anyone, food was good, friendly staff and value for money. What more could you want. Overall, 4 out of 5 from me.

Excellent deal through Itison, great value for money and the quality of the food was superb. Service was a bit slow at times but nothing major and would recommend the location even without the Itison deal.

Lovely lunch with friends to celebrate our friends engagement. The staff could not have been more helpful with the surprise cake and gifts. Only negative was the temperature for most of the time we were there, it was a little chilly but the heating kicked in and then it was fine.
Would return and recommend to friends.

Superb night. Sandy Davidson is an amazing entertainer who sets the place alight. Excellent menu, service and quality of food. 2 hours is not enough when you have an act like Sandy Davidson. As soon as he finished , the place was empyty. The customers and their spend walked out of the door and went to the competition. I suggest 4 hours entertainment perhaps 2 hours each of Stan Fraser and Sandy Davidson.

We arrived early for a drink. The restaurant was empty. And only a couple of people in the bar area. The atmosphere was none existent and the air con was on making it extremely cold and iniviting. After being seated at our table I asked if they could turn off the air on, on the second ask they did so.
I ordered hake with a salad. The hake was inseasoned therefore very bland. The salad was nothing to be desired both taste and presentation. My husband and I were already eating when the waiter asked if everything ok. I did express my diss appointment, however I continued to eat it as I didn't want to be sat at the table whilst my husbands food went cold. The waiter was not phased by my expression and went about his evening.
When we got the bill I asked if he had mentioned my comments to the chef, of which he said he did.

Will not be returning to the Albyn unfortunately.

food quality very poor , over cooked skewers, strange tasting rice and wilted salad, not appetising at all. Waiters very attentive so this helped with the overall evening.
