We had a wonderful dinner in the Black Knight restaurant. Everything was perfect, particularly the attention and service received from the bar and restaurant staff. We wholeheartedly recommend the Black Knight for special nights out and hope to return again in the future.

As the car park was full to overflowing the visit did not show up as being busy. The library where we were directed to was relaxed although not easy to find, and we were attended too immediately. The food as in 'afternoon tea' was excellent and well presented, although the staff were busy as most tables were taken, it was great to see. Overall a very nice Sunday afternoon experience. Ian C.

We had Sunday lunch in the restaurant. The food was excellent as was the service. Nothing was too much trouble. Plenty of staff, all attentive when needed. This is the first time I have visited the restaurant but I hope it's not the last. The whole ambience was fantastic and I would highly recommend

The ‘two dine for £35’ is very good value for money. The food is always very good and the surroundings add to the experience. Staff are always polite and helpful.

Always stop here for lunch in the Black Knights restaurant or Afternoon Tea in the Library or even a crafty sleepover whenever we travel up to Scotland. Another lovely meal in such a fabulous setting. Not the cheapest lunch in the world but definitely worth it. Thank you.

During my visit on Friday evening we found the service to be appalling. Waitress wasn’t familiar with the wine list, asked twice what our drinks were after forgetting, brought drinks with no ice, then brought main course steak with no steak knife, I asked for one, after 15 mins still hadn’t arrived, I had to ask again, by this time food was cold, which spoilt our evening
