As usual we had a fabulous meal at the Orangery. The service was excellent and the food was delicious. Add in the great views and you got perfection!

I was given a dish which was not properly cooked, smoked haddock scotch egg, and I sent it back. I was not given any apology for this. When the bill came I was charged for said dish. Spoke to manager who apologised saying they were extremely busy, not an excuse in my eyes. We then sat for a good 10 minutes waiting for someone to take our bill Eventually we went looking for someone to be able to pay and leave The Orangery bills itself as fine dinning this is certainly not what I experienced Very disappointed on my visit as this was a special meal to celebrate 40 years of marriage

Lovely meal, however my veggie kiev and my fathers fish and chips came with a cooked lettuce on the plate. This tasted almost like the smell of cigarettes as it was charred/burnt. If this had not been on the plate however it would have been perfect.

Great service from staff who were friendly, polite and very efficient. Food arrived quickly and was of a great standard. Love that we have such a great place to eat on our doorstep. Waitress was extremely helpful and immediately changed our table to flat back seating upon my request as I find the curved back seated tables at the windows facing the sea too uncomfortable.

Reception seemed not to be able to find our booking. Therefore we were seated “upstairs” but there were empty tables down below during our entire lunch. Had never happened before at Hydro. A tad disappointing.

We were disappointed with the menu, which different to the last time we visited. Some of our favourites were missing, e.g. Cullen skink, haggis, and goat's cheese.

My husband and had booked for Sunday lunch. The restaurant was busy and after waiting for what seemed longer than you would usually expect to wait we had to catch a waitress's attention to take our order. I asked to see the gluten free menu for myself and ordered pate for my starter and burger for main course. The pate came with 3 oatcakes which was not sufficient given the portion of pate. I ask the waiter if I could have more oatcates and he brought me non gluten free one. However he did exchange them for gluten free. All I could say was that my main course was ok but had a paper napkin n the plate under the pot of relish which was a nuisance. The quality of the food I thought was mediocre and the chips seemed like chips out a chippy Although I was a bit disappointed my husband enjoyed both his starter especially the steak pie even though he couldn't finish it.

We had a lovely meal. Only comment is we found the room temperature was cold - as if a draft coming from somewhere or no heating on? I put my coat back on and still felt cold Also, would be good if staff offered the vegetarian menu with the main menu - we had to ask for it and then given one copy between 4 of us

Some dishes would br better served without the small pot of mashed potatoes, ie on the plate where it would be easier to eat. Again the lamb dish could have been served straight on to the plate. Sometimes fashions in serving do not improve the dining experience.

The food was delicious however the service was very poor. Some staff appeared to be doing all the work while some of the younger waitresses did very little and didn’t seem to be very aware and had to be asked several times for the same things.
