First class service and food; however tables way too close together, very uncomoftable and felt had to keep conversation to a minimum as everyone else was listening...

Staff were brilliant. Without asking, they served the dessert decorated with happy birthday to my partner s daughter, who had turned 21. Great service from the waiting staff. The food was also excellent

Disappointing. My wife’s cheesy chicken sauce had a burnt taste, and the ground beef in the chilli did was either poor quality or not particularly fresh. Despite the restaurant being quiet, and appreciating that guests don’t like to feel rushed, wait of nearly 35 minutes after finishing the main course before being offered dessert was way too long!

As always we were delighted with the quality of the food. Would love it if you changed to proper chunky chips

I did not enjoy the veggie curry with noodles. The food was not as hot as it should have been, as were the look- warm chips which appeared to be re-heated. The curry consisted mainly of a few bits of potato & red peppers with a sparing offering of very small pieces of mushroom, barely making any impact on the dish.

Great service and food as always, however many restaurants are now incorporating allergen menus for people such as myself who are dairy intolerant, and it would be great to see the Cochrane Inn adopting this. The regular menu is very restricting for me as many dishes contain milk, butter and cheese.
