Arrived to find our table wasn't ready, service was slow with drinks and to take order, food took forever to arrive after we had eaten no one came to clear our table and offer desert 45 mins later we paid and left I tried to mention the problems to the lady taking the money but was completely blanked.
We have used the classroom on a few occasions but would think twice about going back.

Hello sandram, I am sad to hear you did not have an enjoyable dining experience with us. I apologise and can assure you this is not our usual standard of service. We can be incredibly busy during lunch, especially with bringing back the 'Eat Out to Help Out' offer. We hope to see you in The Classroom again to give us an opportunity to rectify your previous experience.

Absolutely fantastic place! The braised beef is exquisite, so full of flavour. We were impressed with the Parmesan fries as we expected the Parmesan was just sprinkled on top but it had actually been sprinkled right the way though which makes such a difference. Staff were lovely & friendly & the food came out piping hot. Great cocktails selection too, will definitely be back in our next visit through!

We spent a lovely time in the ‘classroom ‘ from the moment we entered until we left. We are having a new kitchen fitted, so will have to eat out for a while and the classroom was first. The coved procedure was faultless and a warm welcome was received as we were shown our table.
The menus was varied and a good selection was offered. There were no delays or no hurrying at all. We declined the sweet, as the lovely tomato soup and lamb that followed was sufficient.
The waitress was charming, courteous and friendly. The bill was reasonable and it was a pleasant evening. We have been to this restaurant before and will certainly return.

The roast mushroom soup of the day was really tasty and the Caesar salad with grilled chicken was also lovely. My partner had the haggis and cheese loaded fries which he needed help to finish as the serving was very generous. Personally I found his choice looked less appetising to me but as I helped him clear his plate I was pleasantly surprised at how flavoursome it was. I am fairly sure it's an age thing that makes this 'poutine' type of dish less attractive to me and I would never have known how good it was if he hadn't ordered it. I can easily recommend the food and the service was friendly and efficient. Two starters two mains and two alcoholic drinks for less than £50. We will certainly be going again !

During our 3 day trip up to Nairn we had a fantastic meal at the Classroom restaurant.
Popcorn prawns to start with, absolutely delicious. We both had fish for main course, fillet of trout beautifully cooked and a monk fish curry.
Finished off the meal with a Scottish cheeseboard.

Excellent food and service my only complaint was that the special did not state it came with chips and we ordered chips separately. When the meal arrived with chips and the extra fries arrived as well we informed the waitress that the special did not state "with chips", she said it did, went away to check but never came back. The menu did not state it included chips and we thought as the mistake was with the menu and we never touched the extra fries we should not have been charged for them.

Hi Smartcarracer, Thank you for your review. I am delighted to hear you enjoyed your visit overall. I would like to apologise for the mix up with your order. I also apologise for nobody following up your query on the night. I do agree that you should not have been charged for the fries and this should have been actioned during your visit. Please accept my apologies and know I am happy to refund the fries. I hope this hasn't put you off paying us another visit in the future. Many thanks.

Have been to classroom several times over the years but not since it has been taken over.
Went for lunch and my soup of the day was good unfortunately the cullen skink was not good. The churos were rock hard and inedible and had to be returned. Very disappointing. They did take money off the bill. The staff were pleasant and helpful.
Unfortunately I will not be returning until I hear the food has improved.
Had our Ruby anniversary here and the lunch was to celebrate our 45th so was very disappointed.
