My partner and I visited the restaurant for my 30th birthday on a trip from Brighton. We were the only people dining that lunch sitting which was amazing- a private dining experience! All food was faultless and dietary requirements were no problem at all. Nothing but good things to say about the food. Generous portions too. Lovely ambience in the... More

Giving Boath House food an average is harsh, the next star up is 'very good'. The chef here boasts a Michelin star, as it's horses for courses, not quite there for me - perhaps an off night. My main criticism and I think perhaps failing with the experience is that in this beautiful establishment (and it is gorgeous), all guests... More

We were staying at the hotel & ate on our 2nd night. I had forewarned them I was pescetarian to which there was no difficulty. The short menu read well- there were a couple of things not quite to my taste but I've learned that Michelin chefs can do things to food few others can so I wasn't too concerned.... More

You're well looked after at this restaurant. It's small but impeccably clean, modern and scenic. Given it's size the staff are always on hand and took time to go through the menu and give insight into each course. The aperitifs to start and end were nice without being amazing. Started with the scallops which were large and cooked perfectly. Had... More

SHHHHHHHHHH 'S e seo àite iongantach. Tha na seòmraichean uile iongantach agus tha am biadh air leth. Bidh sinn air ais cho luath 's as urrainn dhuinn. Ghràdhaich sinn a h-uile dàrna bha sinn ann a shin ... agus a-nis bidh e an aon àite a bhios sinn a-riamh a 'fuireach nuair a bha sinn a dhol a dh'Alba. Deichead.

Visited with my partner whilst we were competing in a racing event across Scotland. Food was very good, though my one disappointment was that the lamb starter was slightly on the dry side. Wine was excellent as was the service, location and ambience.

We stayed for a couple of nights and the food on the first night was fantastic, service excellent and alcohol a great list. However the food on the second night was disappointing. When the menu simply says the key ingredients and doesn't give the details of how cooked the problem is it may end up being something you wouldn't choose.... More

We booked lunch due to its 1 Michelin star. Easy and friendly correspondence prior to arrival. Gorgeous estate. The drawing and dining rooms are beautiful. Lunch was lovely and of great value (3 courses for 30 pounds!). Our only complaint was the service was not to the caliber of the rest of the experience. They were young and inexperienced and...

We were really excited to have dinner at the Boath House and perhaps our expectations were the problem. The staff was nice and helpful, the food was good but something was missing for us. Perhaps it was too formal, it is hard to find something bad but also something really good. I guess it was an average experience for us... More
