Dinner is a set, 5 course affair but the waiting staff go over the menu with you to ensure there is nothing that doesn't suit you and an alternative can be offered. The chef will add canapes, amuse bouche and perhaps a sorbet over and above the menu just to give a few surprises. The standard of food, preparation and... More

We were out for a Birthday treat, and what a treat it was! A set menu (Sunday lunch), fantastic cauliflower cheddar soup with curry oil (yummy), salted cod with basil and olive hollandaise, followed by Galloway lamb with scrumptious vegetables, hot Pistachio souffle with warm chocolate sauce and a cheese plate. We decided to go for one dessert each, to... More

I had the pleasure of eating here for my fathers day lunch with family and it was superb. I then came for my anniversary evening meal and the whole experience was excellent from pre-dinner welcome, fantastic dinner with 'surprises' and relaxing after dinner drinks.

I don't normally review Michelin starred restaurants. If you've got a star, do you really need my endorsement? This is in reaction to discovering that they have lost their star (OK, so I'm not altogether up to date). We live in Bucks, in an area dripping in Michelin stars. In 2015 and 2016 we had been to several starred restaurants... More

We just happen to pass a sign for Knockinaam Lodge, and wow are we glad we drove down the little road. A beautiful house in a stunning setting, we visited on a warm summer day (Yes, we do have them in Scotland!), went down to the beach for a small walk and dipping our feet in the fresh Irish Sea....

Stunning tasting menu for lunch, each course was delicious, tasty and not too much. Very quiet the day we went, wasn't a problem as stunning restaurant in a beautiful location. Highly recommend, only wished we had stayed in the hotel.
