About The Torrance Hotel
Torrance Hotel has a rich history. It was originally built as a cotton-spinning mill and workers houses and was the very first manufacturing enterprise in the village of East Kilbride. Recently refurbished and significantly upgraded, The Torrance has always been at the heart of East Kilbride. The building has retained all its original character and charm. We have 20 comfortable bedrooms including the newly refurbished Honeymoon Suite. Enjoy a meal in our warm and friendly restaurant or lounge bar which caters for a wide range of food from traditional meals to bar snacks. We have a special menu for children and a wide range of sophisticated dishes for adults.
Afternoon Tea is served Monday to Friday, 14.30 - 17.00
Unfortunately, there was a wedding at the time of our reservation, which made the restaurant and bar area extremely noisy. It was difficult to get the attention of the waiting staff even when we shouted at them several times! The food was ok. We would have appreciated being told about the wedding at the time when we made our reservation. It would have definitely swayed our decision to book.
Dear Tracey, Thank you for reviewing your recent visit to our restaurant. I am extremely disappointed that your visit was not as you would have hoped upon booking. Normally noise does not travel from our conservatory area in to the main restaurant therefore this is why you were not made aware upon booking - please be assured that this is not an excuse but an explanation. Your comments have been passed on to our management team to investigate why the service was not to our usual high standards. In the meantime, if you would like to discuss your experience further, please do not hesitate to contact our general manager on 01355 225241 or at [email protected] Once again, I would like to apologise that the your recent visit was not enjoyable and hope that we can rectify this upon your return. Kind regards, The Torrance Hotel
Service & food were pretty poor, overpriced for what we had to eat
Dear Jacqui, Thank you for reviewing your most recent visit to the hotel. I am extremely disappointed to read your feedback regarding our food & service. I would like to assure you that this is not our usual standard and would like to find out more about your visit. If you could forward any information about your visit to our general manager, Greig Brown, at [email protected], then we would be extremely grateful as it will allow us to identify what went wrong and hopefully rectify it for you. We hope your most recent visit will not deter you from visiting in future. Kind regards, The Torrance Hotel
Food. Was really good but could have been a bit more on the plate. As I am in the older bracket the music in the bar was to loud, could not hold a conversation.
Dear Andrew, Thank you for revewing your most recent visit to our restaurant. I am so pleased to hear that you enjoyed your meal - I will be sure to pass your comments on to our team of chefs. I was dissapointed to read that the music was too loud for your preference. When you book with us again, you can reserve a table in our conservatory area for a more relaxing meal.
Staff extremely helpful and very accommodating Food was lovely too and both our retirees were delighted with the chocolate decorated slates they received at the end of the meal Thank you for a lovely night!
Hi Yvonne, thanks for the lovely feedback. So glad you enjoyed your visit, hope we see you again soon! :)
Every time I arrive at Torrance restaurant there is no one to show you to a table , stand waiting at the wait here to be seated sign for several minutes.
Hi Pamela, thank you for passing this feedback across, without it we cannot improve the service we provide in the restaurant. I have let the Restaurant Manager know who will take appropriate steps to rectifying this issue. We hope we see you again soon. Thank you.
Had the cocktail masterclass Scott was lovely, very chatty and welcoming, even came to us in the bar and wished us a good night. Liked how the cocktails were split in between courses allowed food to settle and not rushed. The down fall is the conservatory but was so loud! Could barely here a word as there was a large table in so that was disappointing as we were shouting to each other just to be heard, should be more private for a better experience. Also went through to the bar and was mobbed more seats needed as half the tables were reserved therefore so many people were standing, doesn’t make you want to stay very long.
Very disappointed with the food.Had dinner both nights in the restaurant below average. Felt sorry for the staff who were very attentive but quality not what I expected.Music from bar far too loud in restaurant......couldn't hear ourselves speak. Sadly I would not recommend the hotel

Service was brilliant. Staff very attentive to customers & nothing was too much hassle. Food was delicious & great value for money. The atmosphere was great.

Thanks Ruth :)
Excellent meal with massive portion sizes. Greeted on entry and brilliant professional and welcoming service throughout. Never managed to sit in outdoor area (no fault of the Torrance, due to family health unable to be outdoors), however, will be back to check it out! Also, the front restaurant area with the bar was lovely, a few birthdays going on that day. Highly recommend!!!
Hi Stephanie, Thank you so much for the lovely feedback. This will be passed back to the team too so they can continue to maintain these high standards. Look forward to you coming back and trying out the outdoor areas soon! Thank you, Kathleen

We arrived and we’re immediately seated with the service being first class. The staff were very attentive throughout the meal with a special mention made to Jonathan Ewing who was beyond exceptional on the night. Unfortunately after the meal and our dinner plates were cleared we were almost 50 minutes before we decided to leave as we felt discarded as we weren’t approached for additional drinks or anything. There was numerous staff member standing around but they appeared more interested in what was happening with a 30th birthday party which was happening. Overall, great food, great service at the start of the night but left with a sore taste at the end which left us leaving the hotel and heading home.
Dear Paul, Thank you for your review on your recent visit. I am delighted to read that you enjoyed your dining experience in our restaurant and that you received great service from our team including Jonathan at the start of your evening.

Our team take pride in ensuring to provide the very best service to our guests therefore please accept my apologies that you did not find this to be the case on this occasion. I can assure you that our guests feedback is always greatly important to us therefore I will be sure to pass all your comments on to the rest of our management team for review.
