The food let’s this place down, along with some small overlooked details within the restaurant which is a shame considering it’s amazing location.

We were celebrating our engagement and we couldn't have had a better experience. Our table was wonderfully positioned giving us an unrivalled view of the castle lit up in all its glory. We were met by charming staff, given a glass of prosecco on the house and Sebastian, our waiter was most attentive, ensuring that all our needs were met. Our food was delicious, the wine very good and we were made to feel special. It was a memorable evening and we would certainly recommend Cannonball.

Overall very good, however I do have the following comments; we had a drink at the bar prior to going to our table, 2 of which were cocktails, all the drinks took a while to be served, eventually 3 were served and waited longer again for the 4th. we didn't order side dishes initially, and then asked if it was too late to order 2 sides of veg and was told it would not be a problem. 2 bowls of broccoli eventually arrived when we had nearly finished our meal. Staff were very apologetic and we were not charged, but thought this was pretty poor.

The whisky room and the restaurant are stunning. Beautiful surroundings and a fantastic ambiance. All the staff were very attentive and knowledgable of the menu being offered. I will definitely be back. Excellent all round.

We visited for the Hogmanay tasting menu - it was delicious throughout. Along with the friendly and attentive staff and the great atmosphere it was a New Year to remember. We have attended three different events here now and thus I would not hesitate to recommend.

The food and service were exceptional, wonderful place to celebrate the New Year. My only suggestion would be to perhaps either take a credit card as securement or arrange the bills at 2330 so there is not the mad panic just before midnight, other than that thank you for a wonderful night.

The food was just so-so. Not an extensive menu. We were in a party of five and four of us thought the food was not very flavorful or exciting.

Your location is spot on and is a beautiful place. I came with a family group on Hogmanay just gone for the fish and fizz evening...top stuff . However none too impressed this time unfortunately as the food was mediocre and I was expecting something better. Friends up from London and your location and perfect staff ticked the box. Food not so.

First class food but sadly slightly shambolic organisation and inflexibility over mixing and matching between menus marred our experience. There wasn’t a “customer first” attitude.

Food and service was excellent but restaurant was very quiet. We did go on a cold, wet Wednesday night though. Will definitely return
