It was easy to manage the booking from Canada. Everyone was helpful. The tasting with James was great and it was fortunate to be there with the live music after the dinner. The whole party was happy with their dinner and accommodations. Fantastic evening overall.

We enjoyed the evening at the Vaults very much, Thank you! The only point we were a bit disappointed was the complicated way of organizing the menu. A little more flexibility would be wishful. You can not expect 10 people to all like to eat exactly the same menu for dinner.

Good value for money, although would have expected the room charge to be dropped as it was a large booking, and we have been members for 35 years!

Helpful, polite and knowledgeable staff in a fabulous environment made for a really special evening. A carefully considered selection to fit my budget provided a range of flavours and a great introduction to malt whisky for my guests.

Es war ein schöner Besuch im Rahmen der Villa Konthor Schottlandreise. Olaf hat uns toll in die Vaults eingeführt. Unsere Gruppe hatte viel Spass. Einigen hat es so gut gefallen, dass Sie auch Mitglieder der SMWS werden wollen. Viele Grüße Robin

Meal was excellent and the surroundings as beautiful as ever. The open fires were perfect. Food was excellent as was a local beer and a dram. The free mini of whisky for the Mothers' Day special was a nice touch.

Another excellent evening, enjoyed by everyone. It was a first visit for most of the guests - and a first taste of whisky for some. They will all be back for more!

We had our wedding reception at The Vaults on a Monday when it was closed, so the venue was essentially private. The food was outstanding, wine excellent, and the tasting after dinner was also top class. Staff were brilliant and the kitchen nailed the food perfectly, our day couldn't have gone better. I can't thank the staff enough, it was a flawless experience and all our guests loved it from start to finish. Thank you!

We had a lovely lunch and some of us (non-drivers) enjoyed a few drams as well! The gang have asked if we can do it again next year as a pre-Christmas treat. It was perfect - and being in the wee room meant we didn't disturb anyone else (some of our group of oldies are deaf and tend to be a bit loud). Many, many thanks - to Amy-Beth, the chef, and the rest of the staff.

I genuinely can't think of a better place to book a tasting for a group of friends...their staff run tastings that can help anyone from a novice to a seasoned whisky fan appreciate their dram more fully, and the atmosphere is great.
