Visited here for the first time since new owners took over. We ate in the dining room and the meal did not disappoint. We had a very tasty amuse bouche which did exactly what it says! I had a lamb dish and the meat was lovely and tender. The accompanying veg introduced a complimentary combination of flavours. We both had... More

My girlfriend took me here for lunch knowing I was a fan of The Kildrummy Inn (new owners of The Tor-an-coille). We were not disappointed, the food was excellent. The Deeside Brewery beer as the main draught supplier is a stroke of genius and definitely the right choice to make as a supplier! We will be back!

Went for a cheeky night away with my partner who surprised me after coming home from a business trip away. Staff were very nice and helpful however on our arrival found out there was a wedding taking place that we hadn't been warned of prior to our arrival. Although it didn't affect our hotel stay, we had booked a table... More

Never disappointed when we go for a meal with friends. Love the new lounge for pre dinner drinks and for relaxing with a coffee and liquor after. Very attentive staff. Large portions, starters were a bit on the big side if you want to sample whole menu. Will always be one of our favourites.
