Afternoon Tea is served daily 14.00 - 16.00
Well looked after by attentive staff
Fabulous dinner! Attentive service and lovely food.
I can’t comment on the restaurant because despite booking it I got served a bar meal in a corridor. Definitely won’t recommend, service is appalling
Service was fantastic as was the meal itself. Only thing I was say is the house wine is very very expensive
Attractive menu, good food and excellent service.
Lovely place for a nice relaxing dinner staff very helpful food very enjoyable menu could have been a bit bigger would recommend it to friends x
Lovely meal, attentive service.
Excellent meal once again. Beautiful flavours and choice. Friendly helpful staff. Thank you
We enjoyed our meal and the service was excellent. I found the menu was not so much to my taste on this occasion. We have previously found the menu and food to be excellent- not quite as good this time.
Veg curry with added chicken was very good.
We booked a table for lunch at the Kailyard online to celebrate my 50th birthday. When we arrived we were extremely disappointed to fine our booking, although confirmed as the Kailyard restaurant, was infact not for the restaurant but for the bar area and bar menu. This was not highlighted on the website or on my confirmation and was very misleading. When I asked at reception why I had a Kailyard confirmation they said it is the same kitchen for the food (hardly the same experience or choice) and that my lunch booking would never have been in the restaurant as they don’t open until 6pm. Why then did the confirmation not say this? We ended up sitting in a side bar area, long and thin, which felt like a corridor. Only two other tables in the area so no atmosphere. The menu was very limited, not at all like the sample menus shown online for the restaurant. We only had mains courses due to so little choice. The young lady serving us was pleasant and helpful and the food was fine for bar dining but generally a disappointing event for such a special day. Very misleading information and booking for such a large hotel chain. Wound have liked to experience Nick Nairn’s restaurant but not sure I can be bothered travelling again from Glasgow for a try. Even now you are sending a feedback form for Nick’s restaurant asking me to comment on something we did not get to experience. Either say you are not in the restaurant for any afternoon bookings at the time of booking or don’t call the booking a Kailyard booking.
Very Enjoyable, Emma who served us is a credit to the team.
The steak, although supposedly 28days old, had very little taste and was a bit tough. Not a native breed I suspect.
I had steak and asked for it to be cooked medium/rare. Unfortunately it wasn’t cooked to how I’d asked and was sent back to the chef to cook another. Unfortunately this too was not cooked medium/rare as asked but ate it anyway as by this time my husband had finished his main course. The staff were good enough to deduct the supplements but for a restaurant of this standard I expected better!
The meal was included in a dinner, bed and breakfast stay which included 2 courses for 24.95. An extra course, be it a starter or main, was an extra fiver. So 29.95 for 3 courses. Way over the odds. I had a burger for a main. 19.95 for an over cooked burger and ten over cooked chips. Had a nicer, cheaper, bigger one at the Hard Rock cafe in the middle of London. Was not impressed. And I don't think Nick Nairn would have been. My friend had fish cakes as a starter which came with 'Vietnamese slaw', also known as dry pre packed salad. And when did good restaurants stop bringing round a bread basket?! They certainly weren't short of patrons. No extra effort as far as 'guest experience' was concerned. The photo of the dessert she had was in the lift in the hotel. Looked nothing like what she was given. All about the bottom line. Was embarrassed to take my friend there. She wasn't impressed and I felt stupid for spending that much money.
Had a great experience at The Kailyard with delicious food & lovely friendly staff. I would definitely recommend it.
The prawn cocktail was charged extra but the smoked salmon could hardly be seen or tasted.
Afternoon tea, dinner and breakfast were all excellent!
Lovely place... we love coming to the hydro for a wee break away and to dine in the Kailyard x
Lovely hotel and meals were very tasty. Would recommend and visit again
First time here and I found everything to be off a very high standard. The waiting staff Chris was also amazing and very attentive throughout the meal.
The only negative about our dining experience was that the restaurant was freezing. We went to the bar along the corridor to get warm but that room was freezing too.
Always tasty. Nice venue (decor classic, nice atmosphere) Good service, friendly.
The staff were attentive and welcoming. The room decor and furnishings were rather tired....the table and menu informal and seemed set up to cater for large numbers. Given this the association with Nick Nairn seemed tenious ...Sadly .the expectation arising from a restuarant associated with Nick Nairn was not realised.
As always our meals the last 2 nights were exceptional. The food hits the spot every visit. The service staff are a credit to the hotel. Extremely attentive whilst managing to find that balance to let you enjoy the meal. Last night we had asked for tablet with my wife’s coffee, which they didn’t have and was no problem. However they went to the trouble of baking shortbread for her. The warm shortbread rounded off at great evening. Can’t wait to come back. A must visit restaurant
