Fantastic service. We’ll set up & lots of considerations regarding covid. Service & food both excellent.
As always we were we’ll looked after by your superb team Food was delicious and service prompt,David & Lewis were brilliant as always I take my hat of to you and your team for adapting and keeping things moving 👍👍
5 stars all round. One suggestion is to brithen up each table we we can see our food better. Even a candle ot tow would enhance.
The App works wonderfully well and help is always at hand if required....Staff as always are friendly and attentive. Food as usual is delicious. One of our favourite places to eat.
In such difficult times with the COVID pandemic, our dining experience was lovely and relaxing and took our mind off the unusual time we are all having just now. The waiting staff were very professional and pleasant and the steak was one of the best I have ever tasted. We'll be back.
Excellent service and food
Had the most amazing meal in the Food in the woods ! Was so magical and grandkids loved it too ! Well done to everyone I think during this horrendous time you’ve done a fantastic job and really gone all out to give us some sort normality ... enjoying a family meal out ! Thank you and can’t wait to return .
We really enjoyed our lunch yesterday. We felt safe, atmosphere was lovely and food was delicious thank you
Was better than expected (with social distancing and bubble)
Wonderful spacious and private layout at “Food in the Woods”. Magical atmosphere. The appetiser and sorbet was a lovely touch. Staff were so pleasant and helpful. Food was lovely. Thank you Balbirnie for a lovely afternoon in anxious times.
The team at Balbirnie are doing a fantastic job in very trying circumstances. We have eaten her several times in the last few months and have always been delighted with the food and service. Can’t wait to go back!
Had the most lovely meal to celebrate my mother’s birthday. The service was amazing and all staff were extremely friendly. All of us also felt extremely safe and it is the most covid safe meal we’ve had. The decorations were beautiful and we’re looking forward to visiting again in December as we hear that it will be redecorated for Christmas.
Had a lovely meal and enjoyed the food in the woods experience and will book again. Bit of a nuisance having to book and order via app though can understand reasoning behind it. The app is not user friendly. When I tried to reset my password via a link sent to my email address it said the link was no longer valid so even booking the table took ages.
Visited with a gift voucher for three course dinner for two with wine but felt under current circumstances it wasn’t good value for the money it cost. Offered extension of voucher for 1 month, but don’t think much will change in a months time and didn’t want to loose it totally.
We were a bit disappointed at being left to wait in the reception with nobody there for 10 mins. The app didn’t work on my phone nor the venue ipad and this seemed to get in the way it efficiency. The food and ambience was stunning however our drinks were delayed and in general we just felt that the customer service standards had slipped a bit since we had last been to The Balbirnie. .
This was the first time we've had a meal at the Balbirnie House Hotel. We were a party of four and sat within a gazebo. The atmosphere was like nothing we have experienced elsewhere The staff were extremely polite, professional and kowledgeable about the food on the menu. The whole experience was first class and we would highly recommend that anyone looking for first class food in a perfect setting, should definitely make a booking at this hotel.
Food in the Woods was a lovely setting. Thoroughly enjoyed it. Food delicious and staff very attentive. Well done Balbirnie!
1st class staff were amazing a credit to the hotel . Very impressed with the Covid safety. Will definitely be back 👏👏
Staff were friendly & courteous. The food tasted amazing & the set up of “food in the woods’ is amazing. Loved our night away ( not forgetting the room service cocktails :) perfect
Lovely relaxed atmosphere to have lunch
In the current climate we werent sure what to expect. Was pleasantly surprised from beginning to end. Staff went over and above to assist. Our meal was one of the best ive had, cant wait to return.
Really like the layout in the ballroom bistro
It would be nice to have water on the table on arrival as it takes a while to log on and order from the app. I was desperate for a drink, we were brought a lovely sorbet and a little starter but couldn’t enjoy it until our drinks arrived. I personally feel it is very time consuming if you want to order another drink or coffee using the app and that it was off putting. The food however was delicious
