Restaurant details
Dining options: After-hours, Breakfast, Reservations
Description: The Waterside restaurant enjoys spectacular views over the fishing ponds, golf course and the beautiful Angus countryside beyond. The restaurant is open daily from 9am serving breakfast, lunch, and dinner. We are lucky enough to have an abundance of fantastic local produce nearby, as well as our own homegrown produce from the Forbes family farm, including strawberries, raspberries, peas, free range eggs, pork, rhubarb, lettuce and more! Our Cairn O'Mount bar is a more casual setting with booth seating and a central log burning stove. Our bar is dog-friendly.

Waited 20 minutes for drinks order. Another 15 before it came, meal was abysmal fish was so small and the batter drenched in cooking fat that stank there was 10 chips on my plate, yes I counted them, it wasn’t difficult and they charged me £14 for it. £4.20 for a can of guiness thats a whopping 75% gross margin. Had to chase staff for tartare sauce and vinegar. I personally would have created merry hell but my guest ?? This happened to me before at kingennie, no more chances wont be back.

Family meal off the supper menu.
7 of us for food plus drinks for under £150 shows great value for money.
The food portions were big (and I mean big) and flavoursome. I had the haddock goujons and each one was the size of a small fish from a chipper. Desert was creme brule for me but the others went for the sticky toffee pud but we all agreed all were some of the best we had tasted.
Yep a wee gem of a place just outside Dundee. We will be back in the nicer wether to enjoy the scenery as well as the food
If I could give more than 5* I most assuredly would
The staff also make or break a restaurant so I feel I should praise the staff for their friendly,efficient but not overly intrusive service to our small party. Definitely another reason to revisit
