Food was pretty mediocre considering the hype.. good deal for 3 courses but both starter and main was luke warm dessert was good. Staff were really nice and welcoming. Not going to rush back unfortunately
My friend and I took advantage of the set brunch menu, great from start to finish, lovely staff, very attentive and good food, will definitely be back!
very slow service just not up to usual standards which was disappointing. We normally so very much enjoy it here. Hopefully just a few hick ups.
Thank you to all the team for a lovely afternoon on Sunday 21st November for my husband's birthday. Everyone went out of their way to ensure we ate extremely well, the food was lovely, most of all your staff are fabulous, in these trying times. Many thanks and we will be back for sure!

Service was excellent, dealt with the nut allergy very well. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed their meals.
Staff and food were excellent. My only criticism is that our lunch took almost 2 hours and we didn’t have time for coffee.
An excellent meal, the food was Awesome, service great and there was actually an atmosphere which is lacking in so many places these days. Thank you
Could not fault it, lovely evening.
Lovely brunch menu. Cullen skink was delicious. Great service from Scott and the team.
We enjoyed our lunch at The Esslemont very much. Atmosphere was as good as can be in these times when music can’t be played. We did note that although our waitress was lovely, she was not as attentive as we would hope. We had to ask for drinks a number of times and she was never very forthcoming with the next stage of our visit. She was busy so perhaps that didn’t help, but trying to get someone’s attention wasn’t easy! However this wouldn’t put us off returning, the food was delicious!
Brilliant experience, lovely food and excellent service. Would highly recommend and we will be back again 😀
Excellent service and delicious lunch!
Very relaxed lunch, would def go back x
