I used the dining at home experience and it really was excellent, with excellent food and instructional help which meant i had little to do bar turn on the oven, pour the whisky and enjoy. Shame my wife demanded her share of the whisky...

The Home Dining Experience food comes ‘Pre-prepared’ in a way and with instructions that make it really easy to present on the p,ate. The food is by far the most tasty and fancy takeaway you will ever buy.

Brilliant service and fantastic food as always. The fabulous Christmas decorations were an added bonus! Thanks so much to Sarah and staff for also making the meal even more special by kindly giving us a gift to help mark what would have been our wedding day. We look forward to visiting again very soon!

Food is second to none. Always has been great but having got a couple of our home dining meals from elsewhere really showed SMWS Queen Street to be in a league of its own. During collection; staffs friendliness, efficiency while still 'covid friendly' can't be faulted.

I wanted to mention that I have been fortunate to have dinner at the Queen street venue on several occasions pre-covid , which is excellent ,and have now had dine at home on a couple of occasions , the experience is no less diminished as the food and presentation package for dine at home is just really good value , with the paired whisky's and the videos to assist in the experience its a really good night in and during these times what more can you ask for , well done to the team at SMWS

All three courses were delicious and selection of whisky was good. 2 things which could be improved. First is that the portion size of the main course was quite small and could have done with more veg. Second, it was not clear from the instructions which whisky was paired with which course (and could also have benefitted from explaining colours/numbers on the stickers). However overall a delicious meal and would not hesitate in doing it again.

We had a great time, the food was amazing - you make a killer haggis and whisky sauce - despite the current situation the atmosphere was great and we will be back again!

I am afraid this won't be good. We traveled up from London as a party of 3 to specifically eat at your restaurant on 28/12 having eaten with you on 2 previous occasions. The booking was for 5 and made over a month in advance. When we arrived we were told our 14 year old son would not be able to sit in the bar area and when I advised we had a restaurant booking the manager came down to tell us that children were not permitted in the restaurant under 14 years of age and claimed this was stated on the website. I've since checked the website and I can see a small statement that the venue is over 18 years of age, but I completely missed this when booking. First piece of feedback is to ensure the age restriction is stated clearly at point of booking not just on landing page where it was missed. The manager at no point offered any solution to the situation even though the website it states private rooms are available for children under 18 years of age. I feel very disappointed. We had a family member and a friend flying in from Los Angeles to eat with us on that evening as well. Their evening and ours was ruined. I've eaten in many high end restaurants around the world and this is the first time we've ever encountered an age restriction on children in a restaurant area. I feel so frustrated and disappointed that I let my family and friends down that I will not be renewing my membership. Please count on additional reviews and feedback.

A combination of surly staff attitude and slow service,45 mins wait for Coffee???, takes some doing and highlights a disappointing drop in previous high standards set by SMWS..
