Service good with all the staff v friendly, food average and overpriced. Starter and desert poor. We had the beef for the main, average. Expected a lot more considering there was near a year waiting list. Won't be back

NacNean House is amazing, the food, the service are all outstanding. I did think there was a lot in the 8 course tasting menu, having said that I did clear my plate each time!!!! The room may not have been the largest but it was spotlessly clean and they gave us fresh milk for our tea & coffee in the...

Super meal - 9 course tasting menu - loved every morsel of it. The staff made the experience all the more wonderful. Have found some foodie places in the past to be 'stuffy' and OTT but not here. The staff are the perfect combination of friendly but not too familiar. They really can't do enough. For a mainly young crew,...

I found this an interesting experience. Every dish was a work of art. I found the 8 course taster menu a bit too much, perhaps 5 courses might be better. You would have to experience it for yourself to appreciate this place, it is different.

A beautiful restaurant with gorgeous decor. Only thing lacking is the staff knowledge and training. At times the staff appeared clumsy and uncomfortable (delivering drinks in particular.) Also one staff member not knowing what was in one of the dishes and told us they had no idea! One of our party of six was quite surprised with that answer and...

What a fantastic experience ...... the house, although on the side of the street, is wonderfully decorated, very homely but modern with pleasant accommodation. Each and every one of the staff were so pleasant and nothing was too much trouble. We went for the tasting menu and to say I was full after dinner was an understatement however I wouldn't...

Actually, many plates. If you want to dine sumptuously without being fleeced and conned by the Michelin star brigade look no further. Food, staff, wine, hospitality, inventiveness, quality, choice are just superb.

I'm not a newbie to the excellent food at MacNean house! As a family, we've had many beautiful Sunday lunches in the establishment. However, over the bank holiday weekend I took my boyfriend to experience Neven's beautiful food for the first time. As per usual the food was flawless, service was impeccable and the "MacNean suite" that we stayed in...
