This was to celebrate our Wedding Anniversary and we had a table with a seaview which was just what we wanted. The service was excellent and we were not rushed even though two hours is normally allowed for each table for lunch.

Lovely experience! Lovely staff and great food. We ordered a second pot of tea, which was forgotten about; maybe because there were a few larger groups. They were however very apologetic about it! Would definitely come again!!!

Starting with the negatives: the roast beef which one of us chose was not quite as tender as expected, and we regretted that there was no bitter available only lagers. These were minor criticisms and overall we were very satisfied with the meal (Sunday Lunch), the general ambiance and the attentiveness of the staff. We will certainly go there again.

Nice venue for my mum's birthday. Booked well in advance and requested a table by the window with nice view of the sea. Waitress was excellent and food very good for the price. Only small negative we were left waiting to be greeted on arrival and I had to find someone to help us and take us to our table.
I will definitely be back

Service was quite poor. They said they couldn’t see our booking so we had to wait for a table to become free. As we were staying at the hotel we went back into our room and the manager said he’d call us once a table became free- maximum of 15 minutes. We waited half an hour and decided to go back down- still awaiting the phone call. We got seated this time. Ordered our food. One meal came and the other didn’t. The waitress who was really friendly and helpful said the other dish I had ordered hadn’t gone through to the kitchen. So we waited a further 15 minutes for that to come out. When we eventually got our food, it was lovely! Service was poor unfortunately...

We made a last minute booking and were delighted with our table. The ambience was lovely as the restaurant was buzzing with guests and decorated beautifully for Easter. Though clearly busy the staff took good care of us. Food and wine were great too. Looking forward to our next visit. Thank you everyone :-)

Staff were pleasant but just not very well trained. Our waiter told us that the tuna steak could only be cooked medium or well done. The Tuna was listed in the grill section of the menu alongside all of the steaks, so he was convinced that it should come with a mushroom even though we requested a salad instead. When he came back from the kitchen he confirmed that we could have it rare with a salad. He then went on to ask us if we wanted the Peppercorn, Bearnaise or Blue cheese sauce with it..... My wife had the tuna - it was overcooked. I ordered the smokey venison - I was presented with a beautiful platter of rare medallions under a bell jar. The waiter then apologised for the lack of smoke under the bell jar - the chef's smoking gun was broken. I should have been told this when I ordered it - then he could have left the bell jar in the kitchen! The Venison was delicious - just a shame about the lack of smoke - I think it would have made it amazing.

Normally I would give the Rolin a five star rating all round, but unfortunately on Saturday evening I'm not sure what went so wrong!
We were dining with friends we havn't Taken before and on this occasion They never saw this restaurant at its best. We are regular diners at the Roslin , and have enjoyed the experience every time. it will not stop us from coming as we know the normal standard is Excellent .
we had a table reservation for 7-15 pm , but. Didn't receive our starter untill 8-45 pm and then went on to wait ages for our main course , making it far to late to order a pudding.
We're. Hoping our friends will give it another chance , and. Find out just how Great it can be. I hasten to add the staff are always delightful and attentive and always make us feel welcome.

The hotel is being refurbished, still. When confirming my booking over the telephone they couldn’t find my booking, so rebooked adding 3 more people. I also updated my booking to say we would have a wheelchair. On the night we had to get the wheelchair up a big step and they had to be lifted up. What I would say that I’m so disappointed in were not informed that the disabled toilets were not in use, no one said this over the phone or even when we arrived it was only when my mum needed the bathroom after the starters we were then informed. Very disappointed!
Food service was very slow as waited an hour for starters and then another hour for mains plus 45minutes for desert
The staff needed to actually work, when you sit down ask if they want a drink even if waiting for people to arrive and offer the menu
Disappointed overall

This is the second time that I have eaten at the Roslin, this time for Sunday lunch.
The service and food are excellent, the ambience is good, the tables are rather close together, but that is OK if your dining neighbours are sociable and pleasant.
I will visit again, not frequently as the prices are too high for regular eating, but on special occasions or with special friends.

The food is good quality and perfectly cooked. Service is very good and served in lovely surroundings. We were at the hotel for a couple of days for our diamond wedding anniversary and the dining experience was excellent throughout. The only criticism I have is that I ordered a glass of vintage port at the end of our meal and it was off and had sediment in it ! Quite disappointing for a hotel of this standard. In hindsight I should have complained at the time.
That aside, I would thoroughly recommend The Roslin restaurant.

Was a lovely lunch, only down side we was full up so only managed 2 courses, but that only took £2.00 off the bill. I thought £18.00 for 2 courses was a lot when you then pay service charge too. Was my birthday!

We booked a table for two 8pm weekdays for our unofficial third anniversary. We had a table near the front window with a good view of the sea front and chose the set menu option.
All the courses were delicious and well presented and the waitress Ana Maria looked after us very well and gave us some good recommendations too.
We will definitely go there again.
