When we arrived, the dining room was totally empty with two waitresses on duty.. We were told that no half portions... More

Thank you for taking the time, but our recollection is somewhat different. We were called and asked if we had " haddock and chips" on the menu; which we do; and we confirmed that our childrens menu has scampi and chips, but not haddock.There was no discussion about half portions. On arrival and at ordering we advised we didn't do... More

Nice menu, good selection. Service ok, little bit slow waiting for water but probably cos i was thirsty!! Booked for 6pm so actually ate from the lunch menu which was great as it has a 2 course option rather than only 3. Fair bit less expensive too.

The selection of food for a business lunch was good but the service is very slow.Not what you need for a midday lunch. Prices were reasonable

Needs to provide some simpler options, not too bad for a single night stay, but too much for longer stays

We went in a group of 5 people of varying age from below 10 to over 70, for midweek lunch, without a booking. We were shown to a table promptly, and service was friendly and helpful throughout.

As you will already be aware Aberdeen for accommodation is a nightmare trying to find a place to stay over expensive in most cases, so I looked at Booking.com and found the Craighaar Hotel it is a bit out the way and if you want to go into Aberdeen for dinner or drinks I would think the taxi fare will...
