Title says it all really, you wont be disappointed! One of the few genuinely dog friendly places in Aberdeenshire. Excellent food, stylish venue, stunning Scottish views of the grassy manicured lawns stretching down to the Dee where fishermen stand knee deep. Glamourous sunny al fresco terrace. Dogs always looked after and offered water bowls.

I had the smoked chilli chicken wings to start and the fish & chips for main. Both were fantastic. The price was reasonable for the quality of the food. I will return again. Our server Davut was...

Had a lovely afternoon tea in a private room which was just the right size. The tea itself was very ample - lots was left over - and the scones in particular were wonderful. Much more competitively priced than other places I tried - I would definitely recommend. The surroundings are beautiful right on the River Dee and the staff...

I came here with my mum and sister to celebrate their birthdays. The food was delicious, the service was good and the dining room was beautifully decorated. I will definitely come back in the summer to enjoy the view.

For £130 a night (which is badged as their best rate room), this was a pretty poor experience. The room itself (room 23) had flimsy locks onto a patio which was also directly off an entrance to the restaurant and bar. So noise was an issue. If you have a young child or baby ask not to be put in...

Birthday lunch in bar part of Banchory Lodge. Service was excellent, even tho the place was very busy. One particular waiter held everything together and seemed to have his eye on all needs at every table. Food excellent. Puddings perhaps could offer a wider choice.
