Myself and my mum visit the orangery many times. Every time we have been delighted with the service of the more than friendly staff and the food has been top rate. Plus on special visits for birthdays ect they have been very accommodating and made the occasion even more enjoyable. A must try for all. Xxx

This was our first time visiting...and we were blown away by the food. The evening starts in a very comfortable lounge with drinks and nibbles. We enjoyed some lovely canapés, especially the haggis Bon Bon. To start I had scallops with ham hock and piccalilli which was utterly brilliant. Some of the best quality scallop I've eaten. Next came a... More

We arrived, were shown to seats to have pre dinner drinks. My husband had to ask for his coat to be hung, and then told, 'it will be behind the reception desk' surely a hotel of this kind you'd expect better service. Then a young girl came to ask us what we wanted to drink, she was surprised when we... More

Hello Ladyj2014, Thank you so much for taking the time to write a review. Dinner in and around Balbirnie's Orangery is very much aligned as a complete evening experience, sorry to hear your views. If we were an hour until main course, that sounds about right, given time for pre-dinner drinks with canapés, freshly baked bread, starter and intermediate course... More

Visited the Orangery on 28th September with my partner, it's well worth making time to visit Balbirnie Hotel and eat at the Orangery. The food is good and the staff make the experience as enjoyable as possible. There was what I assumed to be a wedding party ongoing that evening, whilst we waited in the bar area a steady stream...

My wife and I travelled from Alloa to dine here last night. After following a tree clad driveway we arrived at the Hotel, which is indeed a splendid building. The adjoining car park was full and the overflow car park is a good 150 yards from the main entrance which could create a problem in inclement weather. Once inside, we... More

I live locally and this is one of my favourite places. Sunday lunch is very good Food is generally very good - maybe not five star but the surroundings make up for that. I love the ambience of the place. Service is relaxed but efficient .Really nothing I don't like about Balbirnie.

This excellent restaurant does a fixed price menu (canapes, four courses and coffee) that changes four times a year with the seasons. Coupled with the elegant surroundings and attentive staff, it makes for a really nice experience. I cannot recommend this place highly enough.
