I ate here for the first time in November with no great expectations as often hotels don't pay as much attention to their restaurants as a restaurant does. However I enjoyed the whole experience so much that I came back in January, both the market menu and a la carte have something to cater for every taste (and dietary requirement. Wine List also has a good selection to please throughout the price range. Highly recommended and now on my list of regular eateries.
My friend and i go somewhere sepcial for a christmas lunch every year in Dec and i think we would both say this has been the best yet. The week before christmas can demonstrate a restaurant's worse side and the food can often be bland and choice limited however not on this occasion. A beautiful setting, fantastic service and the food was simply wonderful. What added to a lovely day was that, despite it being so busy, we were under no pressure to finish up or leave our table. All in all a perfect experience.
We had a Christmas night out booked in the restaurant. The food was excellent and seating area was very comfortable. The initial service of bring drinks was a little slow but overall a lovely dining experience.
After dinner we went up stairs for a cocktail which was excellent.
My girlfriend and I came here for our Christmas Eve dinner.
We were a little early so shown upstairs for drinks. The Salon bar is nice, if a little chilly, but the service was very slow. We waited a long time for drinks despite sitting next to the bar.
Downstairs, the service was exemplary, as was the food. Would definitely go back.
Afternoon tea conjures up images of charming company and convivial conversation in relaxed and stylish relaxed surroundings. On the aforementioned, Blythswood, did not disappoint, unfortunately they failed on the detail. For example, no cream with the scones, or hot water with the tea and an excessive length of time to be served. Trivial they may be, but if you can not get the small things right…
A return visit a fortnight later indicated they had learnt from their mistakes. Good service, well presented food and attention to detail.
The welcome is efficient without being mechanical, the decor is modern without being garish and the seating comfortable.
