was visiting Nairn on a golfing trip with friends and decided on the Boath House by previous reviews on TripAdvisor. We were received by very friendly staff and enjoyed a drink and canopes before being seated in the restaurant. We chose the 6 course option...More

On the previous occasions we've dined here it was obvious from the outset why this is a Michelin starred venue. Our most recent meal was as good as always but the overall experience was a little lack lustre. The canapés served with our drinks were...More

Lovely country house in a beautiful setting. Lounges and dining room are very well appointed and comfortable. Staff are excellent: friendly but professional, attentive but not over-bearing. Nice drinks list (very well made martini) and lots of interest on the extensive wine list. The menu...More

As 'foodies' travelling on a 'budget' we tend to eat out a lunch time and restaurants like Boath House are a must. The setting is in a Boutique Hotel ('hidden' on the other side of the main road from Auldearn if you're using sat nav.)...More

We had a lovely lunch at Boath House last week. The food was excellent (in particular the roe deer!). The only thing preventing me from giving a 5* review is that it was lacking in atmosphere a little, though perhaps this was because we dined...More

Dear Guest, Thank you very much for your kind words. It is not often that we have guests check in at midnight, however it was no problem at all, albeit perhaps a little daunting for you as it is hard to find your bearings in...More

When one plans to go to a Michelin starred restaurant, one expects a well-hosted, leisurely dining experience with fine food. My wife and I reserved for dinner at the Boath House well ahead of time. First difficulty was finding the place, which is located in...More

Dear Guest, We are a little confused at some of the points raised in your review and can only assume that as it has been 6 weeks since your visit that you have misremembered some things. It's OK though, we can help clarify them. Firstly,...More

Although the setting was so beautiful and the food interesting- molecular gastronomy trappings, we were disappointed that none of the courses were outstanding. Every course was just good and not memorable although the plates were wonderfully presented. Even though the wait staff were friendly they...More
