Dear Pam T, Thank you for taking the time to write a review on Trip Advisor and we're disappointed to hear that our service wasn't the usual high standard.

Dear Sandra F, We're disappointed to read your review after your meal the other night. We understand that our Restaurant Manager, David, did speak to you before you left.

Had a late lunch at Banchory Lodge this Sunday past with a table of 9. Excellent service, excellent food and an outstanding location. The hotel is very nice indeed, outside and in. We also took advantage of the large outdoor balcony area as well, which was excellent as you can sit, relax, eat and drink out there whilst overlooking the...

We had a really lovely lunch here yesterday with flawless service, from Davut in particular, in the most wonderful setting by the River Dee.

This hotel sits at possibly one of the prettiest parts of royal deeside where the Water of Feugh meets the river Dee with the splash of salmon leaping in the background.

A fabulous lunch at the Lodge. A bit breezy on the decking but a warm welcome in the bar. Fabulous food and wine and excellent service from Davud who provided us with a lovely table and was as attentive as always! An amazing waiter at an amazing venue ❤️ Nowhere better to spend an autumnal Sunday afternoon.
