We ordered food and an alcoholic drink which we took outside, we didn’t have time to finish our drinks as the starters came and we had to go back inside as it was not the weather for dining outdoors. The limited menu was very limited and quite disappointing especially the choice of starters.

My guests and I had lovely meals . Service, covid safety, and delicious food made the time we spent in the restaurant very enjoyable, almost like old times. We will be seeing you again next year. Stay safe and thank you.

Enjoyed a relaxing coffee and delicious scones. The lounge was quiet with only one other table occupied but even if it had been busy the tables are well spaced out. Plenty hand sanitisers. We will be back.

This is the second time we have visited Craigendarroch, having stayed here back in October. The service was excellent and we were hugely impressed that one waiter remembered us from October, he even remembered where we were sat. This attention to detail is so important! The food was delicious and we enjoyed the steak night, including the fish that was selected by one of our party. The boys who are 8 and 10 also loved their meal off the kids menu, and loved the fact they were able to enjoy the lovely fresh bread beforehand! We are looking forward to our next visit....we will definitely return!

Good food. Unlike most restaurants, sauces to accompany steak is an additional charge so one to keep in mind. Try Miller and Carter as a leading light of the industry.

The live music in the bar was very good but quite a few people left when the disco started - it was not very seasonal and we also left early.

We booked in for the New Years Eve meal and entertainment. Lovely evening with great service, food and a nice atmosphere. However at £85 per adult and £45 per child with drinks on top our bill for a family of 4 came to £287! On reflection this wasn’t good value for money. Appreciate its New Years Eve and you always pay a bit more to go out but I think £60 per adult and no more than £25 per child would have been a more reasonable price.

The food is exceptional, true 5 star quality. The staff could not have been nicer or more efficient. The only critique would be to lower the lighting for dinner time.

Was rather surprised to find that the turkey roll contained so much stuffing. Would have preferred all turkey as there was traditional stuffing on the plate also.
