First time here and thoroughly enjoyed it. A nice little hidden gem! Food was lovely and portion sizes very generous. Our waitress was equally as nice and provided an excellent service.

Went here for the first time for lunch with three young children (3-7). Service was friendly. The food was quite good with the usual burgers, etc on the menu. The kids' meals were unimaginative - sausages and chips, haddock goujouns with chips, etc - and would have neen improved if offered with smaller portions but with fruit or yogurt for... More

Food was average and to me, no slice of lemon or lime in our soda water. Little thing but makes a difference.

This was an interesting place to meet for a business. The Lodge at Strichen is a popular meeting place for locals on the weekend, and with that comes the constant buzz of conversation, laughter and children letting off steam. Like a lot of places in this part of the world, the service was excellent. Not stiff and formal, but warm... More

Have visited a few times now - always on spec and although it's been busy, we've been fitted in reasonably quickly and never given the impression that staff are rushed. The food has always been impressive - not necessarily particularly fancy, but the greatest quality ingredients perfectly prepared and always yummy!

We had a family lunch here to celebrate a birthday in the family. The staff made a special effort to decorate the seats and had made it very welcoming.

Decided to give it a try again after giving it a swerve after poor reviews when it first changed hands. I used to visit on a regular basis and was a bit concerned when I arrived and saw it virtually empty on a lovey day. I wasn't reassured either when handed a very cheap looking menu with an abundance of... More
