    Such friendly and helpful staff. Well-paced service. Very good food and generous portions. Casual but smart set up. Lovely gardens. Really nice atmosphere.

    The afternoon tea was nice and filling and a take home box was provided. Overall a good experience and the grounds look lovely. Would have been better if the table had a nice table cover suitable for an afternoon tea ambience.

    Very nice, can’t really fault the setting but be mindful there are people walking around in just towelling robes! The afternoon tea was good, but the best I’ve had but not the worst either! Food was nice especially the cakes. Would be nice to have a broader range of teas- I had to ask for any variations on just “tea or coffee”! Also how about loose leaf instead of tea bags? Nothing bad to comment on though

    Having a smart casual dress code when there are people wandering around in bath robes seems a little odd. Grounds are nice. Food & cocktails are good.

    Maxine’s at Bannantyne spa has a captive audience but is not complacent, a variety of food and bar drinks available, both really good (although not sure the £2 per meal spa day levy is entirely fair) Otherwise a pleasant place to dine with views over the landscaped garden a bonus. Would visit again.

    Many thanks to the staff and management. Was a lovely late afternoon meal . Even though limited menu what we had was great . The blankets were a plus when legs got a bit cool. Lady on reception was very nice , booking our taxi for us

    Good food would like to see the fish and chips back on the menu and maybe more simple alternatives on sandwiches. The desserts are not worth £8 each this an extortionate price and definately not good value

    Lovely food. Bit of confusion over the bill as our package included meals, but the manager sorted it all out without hesitation.

    I booked the Valentines special and I can't compliment the staff and venue enough. The food was delicious, the staff excellent and the atmosphere incredibly romantic thanks to the live saxophone performance. I'd highly recommend this to anyone wanting a truly special treat. My favourite dish had to be the chocolate fondant. The only negative of the experience was trying to book as the Bannatyne website is dreadful and didn't have much better luck getting through on the phone. Once you do manage to get booked in though you're in for a treat, just a shame about the initial hurdle which was almost enough to put me off.

    Third afternoon tea here this year and as always was lovely! This time it was the "festive afternoon tea" which wouldn't be to everyone's taste and was not our favourite but lots of lovely treats that we enjoyed!

    Was disappointed in our dining experience. We ordered bread and oils to start with and bread was like a rock, then for mains we had the lamb and sizzling chicken. Lamb was so fatty and unedible and flat bread again was hard and not enjoyable. Disappointing experience .

    Second time having afternoon tea and just as delicious as before. Lovely sandwiches and cakes and generous with the clotted cream, always a winner - will definitely be back!

    We ordered sandwiches and salad. The salad was plain and dull - just leaves and no dressing. The steak in the sandwich was gristly and inedible. The bread was dry and stale. Very disappointing. The dish was £12 so left feeling ripped off - v poor value. Would not recommend.

    Lovely outdoor seating. We had the salmon and the pork belly and they were both delicious
