Food was nice, though I did ask for the sauce in a side dish in my salmon, it definitely had some sauce when they brought it out and they later brought the side dish. We also had breakfast there which was very average - being generous I’d give it a 5 out 10, scrambled eggs bland and over cooked. Not the standard of food or service I’d expect at a hotel of this quality

We came along to view as considering the venue for our wedding. The staff were lovely, so friendly and nothing was a hassle. The venue is gorgeous and balmoral suite is out of this world. We had lunch whilst there and it was such a gorgeous day so managed to eat outside. Unfortunately we cannot get the dates we wanted for our wedding but we 100% will be back for an overnight stay and some lunch again.

Took our mum for afternoon tea to celebrate her birthday. Was disappointed in almost all aspects of the visit. The atmosphere was dull, there didn’t appear to be many staff on. The sandwiches we received seemed stale and hard around the edges. We had to ask for the cutlery to go with our tea and were also only given one pot of tea between 4 people. I was very disappointed in the whole experience due to the price we paid for a few disappointing sandwiches. Also had to leave the table to find a member of staff for the bill as there was no one around.

I feel that it's a little quiet in the dining area but apart from that it's excellent.

Was so disappointed with the food during our visit on Sunday. My husband had booked for us to come on Mother’s Day as a surprise for me as I just had my daughter 3 weeks ago and we previously got married at cornhill in 2015. The food was very bland no taste at all everything had been reheated and very dry and the portion size was tiny, we then asked for sticky toffee pudding for dessert and waited over half and hour and it still was not out so we then told the waiter to cancel it and we kindly asked for the bill and left, still very hungry. Extremely let down as we were hopeful we could make it a regular mother’s day treat each year but would not go back for food. Hope yous can correct this asap Cornhill we have never had this experience before and been a few times in the previous years

A traversty from start to finish. Hence the reason why we didn’t pay for our meal. My booking was 18.15 not 18.45 or even 19.00 when we were eventually attended to. Can’t put into words how disappointed we were! Didn’t even see the Free glass of bubbly for each Mum!!!!

Lovely views of countryside. Staff were attentive. Good food and nice wine. Tables and decor a little tired but sort of in character with place.

Staff were friendly and advised us on everything that wasn’t available from the menu, which we found was quite a lot! No one offered to take my big winter jacket so I hung it on back of chair. Disappointed there was no non-alcoholic wine & only juice to drink as a non alcoholic option. The pork belly was literally just fat, hardly any meat, steak was ordered medium rare, it came well done with rare tomato & mushroom and well done chips. Disappointed a couple of bits of toast came with the pate, and the cheesecake was a massive slice! Lovely location, lovely castle but won’t be hurrying back unfortunately.

The staff were very good and attentive but the quality of food was poor, had a very small sirloin steak which was mostly fat, the chips were cheap and fatty. I'm afraid I was very disappointed
