We had booked a table for 7 pm and were a bit worried when we arrived and there was no one to be seen. However our worry was unnecessary as two very pleasant staff arrived and we were given a warm welcome. The food was very good and the friendly duo did an excellent job of serving two separate rooms... More

Yet another visit to a great and quirky restaurant. We had our meals in the bar and went for the burger and chips with various fillings. As usual food never fails to disappoint and my husband was in his element with the real ales. He even had a go at the vast range of whiskeys on offer. We will be... More

Very good hotel and restaurant, Nice persoel and very good traditional scottish food. This hotel is old fashion and what you expect in Scotland. Close to one of the best places for spoting dolphins i Europe.

Really enjoyed our experience last week at the Anderson, even the owner came over to greet us (Well meet the dog really). Food was great, beer too. Friendly atmosphere. Dogs are allowed in one of the bars. More pubs should allow dogs!

We got here at 22:00 and were made very welcome. The vast arrange of local and foreign ales will keep the barmaid waiting patiently whilst you make your choice. The locals were happy to chat with us and this made it a feel good bar

Third visit here in three years and after two excellent experiences sadly disappointed Slow service, at least 45 minutes to wait for main courses then we had to eventually ask if they were taking orders for desserts! 'Suppose I could' was the reply. The bill even included drinks that did not have. Having enjoyed my two previous visits I'll not... More

what to say about this place, except this was one of the few magic places discovered during our road trip. The atmosphere is trully local, yet welcoming and warmful to outsiders and tourists like us. The staff was extremely friendly and nice to held up discover local beers and dishes. Quality of food was great for a very decent price.... More

We'd heard very good things about the restaurant at the Anderson, and we weren't disappointed. We are here twice during our week in Fortrose, and enjoyed several dishes, ranging from a lovely salad through to their rib eye steak. The steak was the star, excellent meat, great flavour, cooked just as we like. Best steak I've had for years! I... More

We had a lovely meal for four here last night the food was obviously home cooked to order and had none of the horrible heated up rubbish so many places serve nowadays. The staff were very pleasant and helpful without being intrusive. The bar restaurant filled up as the night went on and judging by the chatter and friendly vibe... More
