We often come to the tearoom during the day and, although simple, their food is always excellent and we're always impressed by the ingredients used that are grown within the estate. So we've always wanted to try the evening restaurant and we were not disappointed. I had duck followed by a steak which were both cooked perfectly. Sadly the venison... More

Came to Castle Fraser restaurant with a group of friends for Hogmanay (New Year). Very cool setting, dining in a large room with a very high ceiling! Since it was New Year's Eve, it was a set menu, with 6 courses, all of which were excellent - the steak was a highlight, cooked just right, with a very tasty mushroom... More

Ate here with a friend for the first time this evening. Wonderful dining experience, will certainly be back. Lovely seasonal menu with plenty of choice. Food is of excellent quality. Staff were exceptionally attractive, nothing too much trouble. The manager even came to speak to us after our meal to make sure that we had enjoyed ourselves. C'est tres bien.

Visited this place many times and every time is like the first time. The last time was for my sons wedding and this was no exception as the staff were friendly. The grounds were well kept and clean with no litter whatsoever.

I came here to visit with family for a 21st birthday meal and the food was terrific. The staff are all lovely and the restaurant was set out very nicely. You could also take your own drinks which was nice. Would definitely visit again.

Dined here with 3 other couples, one local and the others from USA and Australia. Both the service and food were very good. I had the prawn starter and duck main and enjoyed both. Five of our group had steak and asked for everything from medium well, medium to medium rare and the chef managed to satisfy them all! Note... More

If I was on holiday and discovered a place like this I'd be very, very pleased! As it is we live locally to Castle Fraser and can walk to the Castle Restaurant. The menu changes regularly and they use local ingredients. Always good, always innovative. Soft drinks can be purchased but for wine it is bring your own with only... More

My husband treated me to a lovely evening dinner at Castle Fraser. The location has a great romantic setting, lush green grounds with beautiful gardens and grounds. The restaurant is small and very quaint, sitting possibly around 20 people not much more than that. The room looks to be part of the old castle kitchen, and has original features. It's... More

If you want to tell your friends back home you had a wonderful meal in a castle then this is a good place to start. Great food, great atmosphere and a wonderful picturesque landscape. No music just the buzz and chatter of the discerning diner. Bring your own wine and dont be late. Its a family business and these guys... More

I visited the restaurant because I received gift vouchers for my birthday. The room the restaurant is in is very small. Tables are very closed to each other. Noise levels are very high if there's a bigger table nearer yours. Service was good, the young girls serving us knew a lot about the menu and were quick to help us... More

Thank you for taking the time for leaving a review. On the night you said to me that you loved the food and will be back very soon so i'm confused with the review you have left. You ad a voucher but spend more then the amount on it and looked annoyed to have to pay the difference but we... More
