I have been many times to this establishment. It took 45 minutes to get soup and had to send main course back - stone cold. The service was very very poor. Excuse that too busy with wedding - if I was informed in advance there was a wedding on would not have gone. Astonished at how poor the whole experience was and travelled from Glasgow. Cannot believe why bookings are taken for the restaurant when clearly no staff either in kitchen or elsewhere are able to cope. I should have at least had a refund - not good

It was a busy for us as im sure you took note of, however that is no excuse for said wait times for your starter. I am very sorry about this and will be speaking with my chef in regard to this matter Please accept my sincere apologies. Kind Regards

Service was fantastic but after booking a table for 7pm and not being seated until 7.30 was a bit annoying. The time we waited between courses was far to long, in excess of 30 minutes and no explanation was given for our wait. My starter mash was cold and my main was only just warm. Sad to have to give a bad review as the place is lovely in a lovely setting. We didn't get to order dessert as we had to be back in Glasgow to collect my daughter from work at 11pm.

Constructive criticism. 26 Dec lunch. Shown to table and our starter followed us across the dinning room before we had even sat down. No bread roll so had to ask. No water offered. Wine brought to table and bottle plonked down and left. Asked for horseradish with beef; none available. Ask for Djon mustard instead but was brought English mustard. Asked for additional gravy but took over 5 mins to come. The location is stunning but the standard of service was woeful indeed probably the worst we have experienced. Frankly the staff lacked even the most basic hospitality training. Management was poor. Everyone just looked out of their depth and lacking in good direction. Such a shame because the property location is stunning let down by the food and service.

Cornhill Castle is atmospheric We have always loved coming here . I brought my cousin here as a treat on 11th October but I was disappointed with the food. Cullen Skink was on the menu but the best Cullen Skink is to be had at the Green Welly stop at Tyndrum and the Cullen Skink last week just did not come up to that standard. There was hardly any fish just onion and creamy liquid. The sandwiches were mediocre and I have tasted many varieties of sandwiches. The best bit was the sweet. My cousin enjoyed it because it was a treat and there was a bridal party there that day but I was sadly disappointed.
