Have been to Blairs Cove many times and the latest visits have been most enjoyable with wonderful food cooked just as requested. Staff are well trained and experienced who are helpful and provide a wonderful service.

We had a beautiful meal here as always, the food is excellent, staff are friendly and everything is done to a very high standard. The buffet starters and desserts are always a hit! We will definitely be back.

Excellent resturant. Top class food, service and ambiance. Brilliant starter buffet with every option just begging to be tried. Main course cooked to perfection with delicate flavours. Dessert buffet as good as starter buffet. Very reasonably priced wine list. Will go again and again.
