Waiting staff were pleasant but not very attentive. We were left at entrance to restaurant by receptionist and had to go find a waitress to be seated and again to get the bill. Food was very nice but overpriced and did take a noticably long time to arrive.

There wasn't a great choice for vegetarians, and neither if you prefer fish without bones! However the food we did order was very tasty and everything else - the renovations and the staff were lovely

Very long wait for a bottle of wine, food came to the table before we had to remind the waiter about our drinks. No flow of staff around the tables, checking on food and drinks and therefore no opportunity to ask for the bill.

Only problem was I had booked the table on lone for 19.00hrs, and when we arrived in the restaurant we were told it was for 19.45hrs. I had the required paper work to show the correct time. The situation was dealt with professionally and we were soon seated.

Food was faultless. Staff lovely and efficient. Restaurant and bar lovely but could possibly do with some air conditioning? ?

Music just on the loud side. With a large group, therefore, difficult to converse with everyone. (I've mentioned this to the staff before). But service and food excellent.

I think the waiter who served us could do with some further training. Ordered a bottle of red wine. He let my husband taste then filled my husbands glass and proceeded to ask if I wanted him to fill my glass as if he was doing me a favour.

Chowder tasted fabulous, but it would have been enhanced by serving it with a small piece of bread to soak it up.

What a great new restaurant at the bowfield hotel. From the moment we walked in we were so well looked after and the Duck special was awesome. Looking forward to coming back next week with friends.

Absolutely love this place it is so cosy & welcoming but this visit compared to other times I have dined here was a bit of a let down. The food was lovely but portion size has gone down significantly and for the price you pay we were a little disappointed.

The ladies toilets let the place down. One of them was blocked and despite the fact I reported it was left open and people were still using it. Apart from that two ladies toilets for the amount of people was insufficient. The decor was also very basic for an establishment trying to be a bit upmarket.

I had the ciabatta with streak and mustard. The mustard completely over powered the sandwich to the point of not being edible. Far too much mustard. Other than that very nice just go easy in the mustard . And I like mustard...

The front of house lady was very nice however dining was not a nice and relaxing experience for us at all. There was too much going on in the restaurant and 3 members of staff serving the one table. We were moved in the middle of lunch twice to let people past and being pregnant and moving chairs and tables is not appropriate really. The coffee was cold and they failed to bring us menus when the afternoon teas where there 2 others at the table hadn't even seen a menu yet! Then after telling them 3 times that we wanted a ham with mustard sandwich there was no mustard on the sandwich and the cheapest bread and cold meat I have ever tasted. Value for money was shocking at £6 for it!! It really wasnt nice with a quarter of a tomato in the middle of it. We asked for 2 soft drinks with the afternoon tea and we got a prosecco sent over instead then the bill was wrong they overcharged us by a mile and when I told the man serving is he changed it and brought the bill back still overcharging us so then he counted it up in his head at the table what he thought our bill would be and put it through the card machine I was embarrassed at that and didn't want to question it as I couldn't actually believe what a shambles it was. So after looking forward to our relaxing day out that we spent over £50 on we couldn't wait to leave!! Spa facilities are fab but the dining part is not enjoyable at all!!

Lovely country escape within close proximity to Glasgow city centre. Lovely staff, fantastic leisure facilities and excellent value for money. Would definitely visit again.
