We had the Pre Theatre Menu before Kylie at the castle concert. The famous haggis cannonballs for starters were amazing and the fish goujons were so fresh and tasty. The whole experience deserves a huge 10 out of 10 and would totally recommend to all - we will back again very soon.

Very enjoyable. We were seated upstairs due to a private event in the main area. The food was delicious and I would like to return in the future.

Only had enough time to quickly eat and go. However the time spent was such that we will be back for a full dining experience. The staff very friendly.

Came here for a meal after a graduation at the University of Edinburgh. When we arrived we were the only table there but the place started to pick up as the meal went on. We were given excellent service by the staff who even gave us a complimentary plate with some mini desserts that said Congratulations in chocolate sauce on it. This was a lovely touch and really appreciated. All the other food was delicious. Would definitely recommend.

Excellent job. We were served by two trainees that clearly had passion for their jobs. A perfect mix of friendliness and professionalism. Nicki appeared as a seasoned server not someone on their first day. Well done in selection and training of staff. Food was wonderful and timing of it perfect. We will be sure to leave a review on Trip Advisor as well once our vacation is over and we return back “across the pond”.

We had the 30-day aged Scotch Beef. It was flavorful and tender. The cod was cooked to perfection too. The skin was light and crispy.

Everything was excellent, except for one small but vital thing. The smoked salmon and scallop appetisers were really good. The pan-roasted cod was very nice too. The slow-cooked pork belly was very tender and flavour was nice, only the crackling was really hard and not really edible. Improve on the crackling and everything would be perfect.

Joanne was marvelous serving my wife and myself on our anniversary. Food was sublime. What a nice thing to have Glengoyne 10 year old single malt whisky dram!

Riktigt bra mat! Vi åt kyckling och hummer som var perfekt tillagad. Även efterrätterna var toppen. Jättetrevlig personal och bra service. Mysigt inredd och bra läge.

What a perfect way to spend a Saturday afternoon - having afternoon with my Mum in a beautiful setting, steeped in history with beautiful food and drinks!! The attention to detail was fabulous and the staff were so attentive, they couldn't do more for us and made us most welcome. I cannot rate this special place highly enough and look forward to visiting again very soon. Thank you Cannonball!!

First time we have been, had lunch and thoroughly enjoyed it. Looking forward to returning for dinner in the near future. A bit disappointed with the lack of beer choices and thought the price of a bottle of wine was rather high.
