So disappointed with our experience as regular customers who usually sing your praises. 45 minutes after sitting at our table (moving from the bar where we’d had pre dinner drinks) we eventually got our drink order. One waiter didn’t know which pork was off the menu - disappeared to find out & never returned. A further waiter poured still water into a full glass of sparkling water & refused to take responsibility for it. Dessert wine was like a Monty Python sketch with only one glass of the chosen wine available- we changed the order to this & 2 of the other - to only have 2 served because there was none left at all & no further bottles. We then moved through to the bar for a liqueur of which there appeared to be none - no Amaretto, no dessert wine, no Frangelico - only Chambord or Tia Maria. My husband complained to Davut who gave us the drinks on the house. We had visitors with us & the service was really embarrassing for us as hosts. Waiting almost an hour for drinks probably meant at least 2 further bottles of wine would have been drunk by our party - the lack of dessert wine further reduced our consumption & bill, not taking the round on the house into account. Please sort out the service & level of training & ensure supplies are sufficient as you are shooting yourselves in the foot. Sadly we are unlikely to return soon.

Sorry to be so negative but overall the food & service were both depressingly poor. Dining room table surface sticky, had to leave ‘fresh’ tomatoes in starter, as they were old,bruised & mushy, tasted unpleasant. Told staff when asked if all was OK, but received a peeved reaction! Sea bass over-cooked & dry. Had to request lemon. Poor quality veg accompaniment. Desert poor quality. No decaf coffee coffee. Waiter with shirt hanging out of jeans. (Not cool, not trendy, just scruffy.) Hottest day of the year, but radiator on by our table, ‘sorry, we can’t switch it off’. Come on Banchory Lodge, brilliant aspect by river with lots of potential. Spend a small amount to rectify broken items in bedrooms & public areas, & fix the mediocre food & service.

Food is always decent, with a good menu that is much less limited in size than most hotel restaurant menus. Only thing missing from the menu which is a bit of a surprise and always causes a little disappointment is that there is no chocolate option among the many desserts (comment from my wife is always "this menu must have been written by a man!"). Staff are friendly and helpful but were harassed and rushing on the night we visited because there was a wedding on that night, meaning our meal was slow coming and the scallops had probably been waiting under a heat lamp for a little too long by the time they arrived. We won't be coming again on a night when there is a wedding on. Overall: decent service, nice menu and we enjoy the Banchory Lodge Hotel for dining but it seems you need to choose when you go

Really good meal in a lovely setting with river views. All staff very attentive and friendly. Food very good - though a very large starter meant we didn't have room left to explore the dessert options! Highly recommended.

Very disappointed with choice of food. Had booked table for 6.30pm but they had run out of several of the starters and main meals by time we arrived. There was also a very limited choice for vegetarians. When choosing dessert they had run out of sticky toffee date cake and replaced with sticky toffee ginger cake. Didn’t sound appealing so went for the ice cream which they only had strawberry or marshmallow left. They had run out of vanilla ice cream too. Didn’t think the staff were particularly helpful or friendly. What we had was nice enough but wouldn’t rush back.

Food was lovely, service was good, some of the staff were not very happy looking a smile goes a long way. For a family friendly place they had no children's cutlery or plastic cups, they did manage to source some paper ones in the end and we got smaller starter cutlery, but i felt it was a bit of a chore
