Excellent, relaxed meal on a Friday night. Service couldn't have been better! Staff were so attentive and friendly, took all necessary precautions and whole restaurant felt safe. Occupied tables were spaced out which obviously affects the atmosphere of the restaurant but at no fault of theirs. Food was delicious and so was the merlot. This restaurant never disappoints.

Excellent afternoon at the Balgarth. Food and service, as always, were excellent. In these difficult times, we felt perfectly safe as all the appropriate procedures were in place. You are great asset to Doonfoot.

Was disappointed no Sunday roast dinner on menu,then ordered steak and ale pie and it ,was in a scotch pie base with mash on top but feel there should have been puff pastry on the side or on top of pie and mash on side and the gravy was watery and tasteless my experience the last time was there was completely different had Sunday roast and it was delicious just disappointed hasn’t put me off coming back though

Staff were friendly and allowed us to change the reservation last minute. However service was extremely slow once we were seated, courses were brought out separately instead of together as requested (one of the party was having a starter and main, one of the party was having a main and a side meaning the person not having the starter had to wait 40 mins for their meal). When the mains arrived one was lovely (the cajun chicken crepe) however the other not so much with the battered fish looking pale and tasting bland, and the macaroni side looking and tasting like it had come from a can. Atmosphere wasn't brilliant but with the lack of music there's not much you could do about that. Shame as it looks a lovely place and the staff were friendly enough. Just slow and that one meal was below standard.

Really disappointed the children's play area wasn't open and this isn't mentioned on booking. We picked it specifically as we had 2 children with us... Food good but pretty expensive

Friendly staff but with great well priced menu for all tastes. However due to the current COVID 19 restrictions the menu has had be reduced and the atmosphere will have been affected (hence the lower grades). The staff do deal with the social distancing measures very well, and do the utmost for you to be as comfortable as possible. Would definitely recommend.

The food was amazing, the staff were very pleasant. One waiter stood out above the rest and one was most likely new and could benefit from customer service training. Will definitely be back.
