We have been coming for a number of years for a birthday celebration at this time of year. Food was excellent as always although notice now no small taster of whiskey with the 3 course menu or any petit fours with coffee. Service was slow although didn’t trouble us too much as prefer a leisurely evening to enjoy the food.

Wonderful , friendly staff. Service a bit slow at times but a wonderful experience for the 70th birthday. The £200 charge for the room was a bit steep given what we spent on wine and whisky but it was a special occasion .

On this, our second dinner at The Dining Room, we found the food to be very good. However, our experience was spoiled by a nearby table of three very loud young people. The four of us couldn't hear each other for the raucous laughter and noisy conversation that continued during our entire meal. Our waiter, whom we found to be condescending and unhelpful, didn't deem it necessary to ask the boisterous threesome to be more quiet. Also, we were surprised, and not in a good way, that we had to ask to taste the Scotch Malt Whisky Society's offerings rather than being asked if we'd like to.

For a small private meeting venue you couldn't do much better than the Scotch Malt Whiskey Society.

Very good food, staff very friendly. However can help but feel staff are not properly distributed amoungst bars and resturants as to often there is no staff available to help or they are busy.

Wartezeit zwischen den Gängen zu lang (2,5 Stunden für 3 Gänge). Nachdem kein Ambassador verfügbar war, wurde uns angeboten einen Flight in der Kaleidoskop Bar zu trinken. Als wir in die Bar gehen wollten, wurde uns mitgeteilt, dass wir nicht genug Mitglieder waren um Zutritt zu erhalten. Die Einzelpreise der 3 Whiskies war günstiger als der Flight Preis
