My meal was quite small for the price and there were no vegetables included. Prawn cocktail was very nice but, again, very small for the cost.

The service on the Sunday afternoon was not very good at all. Drinks ordered sat on the end of the bar for considerable lengths of time, sauces taken from table prior to main course arriving and despite asking for them to be replaced several times we had to wait an inordinate length of time.

Please bring back the lunch time menu. £24 for Skate not including a vegetable side is an expensive lunch. I think you will lose customers during lunchtime sittings without an incentive, including me.

Hi Jacqui and all, As you know we have been coming to the Roslin, for accomodation and dinner for nearly 10 years now. I just wanted to send you a little comment about dinner. As a resident or frequent user, I find staying to dinne with you is very convenient. In that sense, the set menu was a good option, especially when it costed about 20 GBP. We first found last year that this went up to 23 GBP (which ususally rounds or excesses 30 by the time we add a beer and / or some extras). Last week the waitress told us the set menue is no longer available so we have to go for the a la carte. This time, while the soup of the day was good, I must say that the Halibut (with chorizo sauce!!) didn´t meet your usual standard. We paid nearly 90 gbp for two dinners which I simply think too much this time. I just hope you consider that having a simpler menue (whether is set or no is irrelevant as long as is good quality (which often is at The Roslin) and a little bit more affordable cost (which is not now often the case). Breakfats continues to be excellent, by the way and Angie is a star! See you next time and best regards, Gorka Urbieta

I have been here 3 times before and have always had a great time. I found all staff to be very friendly but professional and the food in particular is of a very good quality. Unfortunately I found myself very disappointed on this visit. This was purely down to the Roslin having a refurbishment. I didn't notice this on their website in which case I would have waited for the completion date to take my friend there for her special treat. We were seated in a pretty room where I have had afternoon tea but it didn't have the ambience of the main restaurant/bar area. There was banging whilst we ate plus the view was of workman going about their business. However the food was still of a great standard but felt there should of been some notification of the work going on there plus I would also like to mention that parts of the hotel were cold. Not very nice when visiting the ladies..

Stood in the entrance to the restaurant for a long time before any staff spoke to me, We were early for our reservation but none of the staff that walked past me standing in the doorway asked me if they could help us. Once seated the service was otherwise good, and the food was first class.

I had a call from yourselves on 30 Dec. Asking me if any of us wanted the set menu. As there was 10 of us l would have to ask each person. I asked the young lady what was on the set menu, she informed me she did not know, and handed me over to another person. She informed me, the set menu and price would not be known until new years eve. How could l ask ten people if they wanted the set menu without knowing what would be on it and the price. I did say what was the point of ringing me without this I formation. She had no answer.

Despite doing a pre-order for our Christmas party meal there seemed to be confusion over our starters. A waitress appeared with a second prawn cocktail when we'd only ordered one and 4 of our guests waited approx 5-10 minutes longer than those of us who had received our starters already. One of those people had the soup which was cold by the time they got to eat after waiting for all starters to be served. We also had to chase up our white and rosé wine, again after having pre-ordered. My roast turkey dinner was barely warm, some parts of it were cold in fact. Unfortunately after the starter delays we didn't want to wait for it to be heated up further. My friend who had the beef said it was very dry on the top. The evening was fun however and there's a great atmosphere but the food quality had declined significantly since our party in 2018. We were able to get a table in the ballroom unexpectedly which was a bonus. We have a table booked already for this year but we're debating if the food quality in 2019 might not keep us coming back for 2020 which is a shame.
