The service by the waiter was very good and was informative, polite and courteous. The food was somewhat delayed in being served and the hotel was possibly understaffed. Two of the four main dishes were very poor and neither looked appetising nor tasted good. The lamb neck was old and stringy and one would question why such a poor cut of meat was being offered at all on the menu. The accompanying bean and tomato sauce ? was solid with undercooked hard beans and tomato slurry and could not be eaten. The pork belly was served in a very peculiar way with no fat or crackling (why even call it pork belly) and was very dry and tasteless and the potatoes were old and discoloured and seemed undercooked. The potatoes with one of the other remaining dishes were also old and discoloured and undercooked. Overall a very poor and very disappointing dining experience and Banchory Lodge need to return to the good quality 'normal' scottish cooking for which they were known before. We will be blacklisting Banchory Lodge until and if we begin to hear that they have significantly improved the quality of their food.

We live locally and absolutely love it here....staff are always fantastic! Very friendly and easy to chat too, we love the atmosphere in the bar area, music is always great and it always has a cosy feel to it! The menu is a little pricey however well worth the money, cocktails are also fantastic and the menu choice is great! Highly recommend to anyone who is in the area to head down here....gorgeous decking area for summer drinks too!

A good visit at lunchtime on a Friday with friends. Hotel was catering for a large funeral towards the end but away from where we were eating. Unfortunately the car parking just couldn't cope with all the cars and both of our cars were blocked in and we needed help from hotel staff to find the driver of one of cars to let us out. Parking is often a trial there and could be helped if a few places were blocked off in the centre so cars can circulate more easily. I would advise future visiters to only reverse park. We were stuck for about 30 mins.

We spent a very pleasant evening at the Banchory Lodge recently. The food was first class, matched equally by the service, which was attentive without being overbearing. There is always a nice ambience in the restaurant, making our dinner very relaxing and enjoyable.
