Sadly the meal was not up to standard. The attention to detail was poor. The salad leaves were tired and brown., which you don’t expect with a meal. I expect the food to be fresh. Also the desert that we chose stated caramelised apples, which certainly the apples had not been caramelised.Though it wasn’t all bad with the flavours been good. We always come to the Shetland hotel for a special occasion, as normally the quality is consistent. It was my 60th birthday so I was rather disappointed by the lowering of standards. We didn’t say anything as we didn’t want to spoil the evening. On a positive note the waitress was charming and we were happy with the service. It is a shame that I now feel we should go elsewhere for a special meal due to the points above. Regards Monica

Music really annoying and CD was skipping!! Service was really slow. Had to remind waiter about dessert menus then waited over 15 minutes to receive pudding. Husband asked for no ice and received a glass full of it!! Pretty disappointed to be honest!!

Wonderful food, wonderful service and a pleasant atmosphere. Shame that the rest of the Hotel is so tired! Needs some love and it will be a great venue.

Ordered sirloin steak with side order of onion, rings, mushrooms and tomatoes. Only the onion rings arrived. Too hungry to complain. Sirloin steaks were fatty, tough and chewy. We were not provided with or or offered steak knives. At no time did the waiter ask us how our meal was. On paying for our meal, the girl serving us asked us "was everything alright with your meal?" To which I responded by telling her the steaks were disappointing, she replied..."Oh really?!". Poor customer service, staff training imperative. This was an anniversary meal. Unfortuately very disappointing.

No mussels in the fish pie although stated in the menu. Very ‘rustic’ presentation. Small portion of salad with butterfly chicken. Lack of direction when fire alarm went off. And we were left standing outside and not told it was ok to come back in.

Good food. Not much variety of gins. Staff accommodating. Had to wait a while for dessert. Dessert was quite small. Overall a bit expensive but ok for a treat, wouldn’t be able to afford regularly. We paid over £90 for the 2 of us for 3 courses and 2 drinks each, quite pricey.
