Burger was really good relish... More

Staying in Huntly on Business over the summer and autumn I tried this place twice and both times it was poor. On both occasions the staff didn't seem to know where things are or the till system. On one occasion I ordered half a caraffe of house wine that didn't come before I'd finished my main. The waitress did apologise... More

Pretty average pub dining room with friendly staff and average food if you like chips with everything. Why can't pubs offer fresh green vegetables?!

Thanks for your comments. We do have daily deliveries of veg and most dishes give a choice of veg or salad. Chips are standard but we also offer boiled and mashed potatoes. More

Worst experience ever. Food was average and the service was really bad! Waitress clearly should not work with the public, very rude. Still waiting to be offered a drink! If in Huntly go to cafe India instead or the Bank Cafe.

Very good food and friendly staff. My husband and I are regulars and haven't had a bad meal on the many occasions we have been in. There is a varied menu, Scottish and International fare, all prepared with fresh produce and great care. Would recommend to anyone visiting the area.

The 'restaurant' are a few tables squeezed around a bar in what feels like a corridor. We were advised to wait in the Cafe Bar until a table became free. That was quite an experience - the 'cafe bar' is a spit-and-sawdust affair with drunks wandering around the place, blaring music, pool table, and weird tattoed people snogging. We should... More

In with the family for a meal. It was quite quick to arrive and there was plenty of it. Very well presented, fresh produce and doesn't break the bank. I like that there are also quite a few specials on the board to choose from along with the set menu. They had run out of one of the desserts which... More
