Five of us had lunch at The Turquoise Thistle which was a thoroughly enjoyable experience with comfortable, modern but pretty surroundings. The food was delicious, the service great and the staff very friendly and helpful.

I had an Afternoon Tea with friends for my birthday party and it was lovely. Most of us were students so value for money is really important to us and it certainly delivered on this aspect. The staff were very helpful and the only negative I have is that there weren't many other people there and so the atmosphere was a bit lacking. But overall, we really enjoyed ourselves and I will definitely come back.

Afternoon Tea at the Turquoise Thistle is an outstanding experience and, in my view, the best in town.

Truly enjoyable experience. So surprised that there was only one other table booked at 7pm. Service was excellent. We had the pate for starters and sirloin steak for main course. Everything was full of flavour and ample portions. Try the triple cooked chips and the side of mushrooms. So tasty! The chocolate mousse was a great way to end a great meal. I certainly would go back again!

Very good food, in very well decorated and nice surroundings. Unfortunately there was a noisy crowd in the adjacent bar that somewhat impacted the quiet ambience. Otherwise an excellent, good value experience!
