Reviewed yesterday NEW

We had a birthday lunch here and were very impressed with the quality (and quantity) of the food. No nouvelle cuisine-sized portions here! In fact, when the sweet arrived I thought it was for sharing, it was so enormous. Good food, excellently cooked. The staff were very efficient and friendly, and on a grey Scottish spring day the roaring log...

We have eaten here on several occasions and never had a complaint, but today Mother's Day was a disgrace, soup was like dish water and the roast beef awful a 10 cm slice of raw meat, on top of barely cooked vegetables only edible portion was the mashed potatoes, cheese board was rubbish where Brie cheddar and blue, all tasted...

Whilst she asked if everything was ok, we now realise you perhaps didn't want to make a comment at the time as you've stated you weren't paying. She would have happily addressed the...

Ate here for the first time in November and very much enjoyed it so returned for lunch for my birthday on 8th march and had wonderful food and service again. Very enjoyable afternoon with friends. Stunning views over the river.

Title says it all really, you wont be disappointed! One of the few genuinely dog friendly places in Aberdeenshire. Excellent food, stylish venue, stunning Scottish views of the grassy manicured lawns stretching down to the Dee where fishermen stand knee deep. Glamourous sunny al fresco terrace. Dogs always looked after and offered water bowls.

Had a lovely afternoon tea in a private room which was just the right size. The tea itself was very ample - lots was left over - and the scones in particular were wonderful. Much more competitively priced than other places I tried - I would definitely recommend. The surroundings are beautiful right on the River Dee and the staff...
