After specifically travelling from Aberdeen to the Banchory Lodge for a Sunday Roast at the weekend, I was very disappointed to be told upon ordering that there were absolutely no Sunday roasts available to order - myself and my boyfriend had been looking forward to it so much!

Booked our table for 12.30 and arrived in time. We had to ask for our drink order to be taken prior to our meal order as nobody asked if we’d like to order drinks. We had to wait almost half an hour for our starters and when they did arrive we have no meal for our son, which we had requested be brought out with our starters. The table beside us had enjoyed their main course and desserts/coffees before we’d even received our main meal. The waitress did apologise as she was new and this was taken into account in the bill. However poor service let down what was supposed to be a special meal For my husbands 40th birthday. I would also add that joining 2 round tables together does not encourage comfortable seating as we all felt far away from each other and very much awkward in such a limited space.

My husband and I have visited your restaurant several times since we moved to the area. We usually love the food but on this occasion my husband had the mussels to start and they hadn’t been cleaned properly. The outside shells still had bits on them and there was a lot of grittiness in the broth. The atmosphere, staff and the rest of the food were good though.

Hello, We personally thought that there would have been a little more effort gone into decorating the dining rooms to make it a more festive experience which was disappointing. There were a few festive bobbles and a festive paper plate matt, we thought that a tree in each dining room along with more effort put into decorating the tables would have helped, and even a cracker to pull. We have dined at Banchory Lodge a few times now and love the food and location and have always left feeling fulfilled. We took our 4 year boy and just thought that Banchory Lodge has so much potential to be very festive and were left feeling disappointed with it all. Scott Findlay

We love the fact that you accommodate all with a great selection, veggies and those with other dietary requirements. Staff always make us feel very welcome and we look forward to eating you again on Christmas Eve. This time you will welcome the whole family including the dog.

Lovely atmosphere and staff very friendly. Was a little disappointed - having specifically emailed the hotel and spoken with a chef re my dietary requirements in advance - to arrive and find that what had been promised was not available and there were quite limited alternatives. We had cancelled a reservation elsewhere for this reason and unfortunately it did spoil my the experience.

Banchory Lodge is an amazing place and has a great view/grounds, however sadly that is where the' amazing' ends. The food was average and being pre-Christmas the turkey dinner was what I'd expect from a function hall dealing with 500 dinners, not an upmarket hotel. One of our party had to return theirs. similarly with after dinner refreshments, one hot chocolate was returned twice due to being luke-warm, the coffee was also tepid and strong, not enjoyable. overall not the best experience food & drink wise, but the view will still see us back!

Food was not good, only 1 of the 4 of us dining actually enjoyed the meal. The waiter was very good and asked if I wanted something else. Was very noisy. Menu limited.

After initially being seated in an area next to very noisy children in a separate room, we asked to move tables. We were relocated at an empty table in a cosier room with much more atmosphere. Why we weren’t directed there in the first place was rather a mystery as I had booked ages in advance for a special dinner with my siblings. Thereafter the experience was good and many thanks to the helpful staff who moved us.
