I was told they have over 400 malts available. The index shows all sorts up to £90 a dram. You do need to book a table.

Seven us went to the Lynnfield Hotel for a very special dinner; and we were all thrilled with the quality of our dining experience. The lounge provides a splendid relaxing atmosphere for both a pre-dinner drink and a post-dinner and coffee with 'peedie' fours. I would hazard a guess that the selection of Malts will be hard to best anywhere else in Scotland. Tonight certainly exceeded expectations in every way. Highly recommended!

This is a lovely place to sit and have a drink. Rex the dog is a plus! You will need to book for a meal. We didn't and there was not even bar snacks available.

Was it just a bad night for this place? We were a bit confused at first because we had been told that we had the last 6 p.m. reservation, but when we were ushered into the dining room it was nearly empty. We both ordered a steak and requested medium rare. It came pretty well done, but the reason was probably that it was such a thin cut it would have been impossible to make it medium rare. For the quality of our dinner we paid what felt like a very high price for a thin steak. Strange dinner music played overhead...at least strange for Canadians in Scotland. "The Yellow Rose of Texas". Where were we?? The second night we ate elsewhere.

The Lynnfield was recommended when we asked our hotel about seafood. They do have an excellent seafood platter available as both a first course or main. They were also very considerate about the fact that I can’t eat pepper and made accommodations quickly. However, one young lady was rude enough to remark that my husband offered the ”wrong “ glass for the wine we were drinking and when I complained to the house manager he just defended her, adding to the insult. I can’t stand a young waiter or waitress who thinks they know it all!
