    Service excellent with warm and helpful staff Food was well presented and flavoursome but found the lengthy descriptions of each dish sometimes disappointing with the meagre portion size. A welcoming place to come too, however

    The food and service were absolutely fantastic and the visitors we took with us were very impressed with the Station Hotel. The evening we visited was at the end of the Speyside Whisky Festival and there was a large group who had obviously been partaking in the tastings available and were a little noisy but we didn't let that spoil our enjoyment.

    Super locally sourced food. We have been to dine three times, and have not been disappointed. Very attentive and knowledgable staff. Good knowledge of their wines. Quality of food is to a very high standard. I would say the quality is certainly worth the price. We hope to go back again soon.

    Nice place, you can see they have spent a small fortune on the place. But a mixed bag, but in a good way.. . Having been lucky to eat in many top end restaurants i can say the chef is very good and the food is very good with strong punchy flavours. Also nicely arranged on the plate and the pig fat brulee was delicious... Yes, you read that right, pig fat brulee... This compounds my belief that the chef at the burners is a talented offering. Also lots of variable drinks on offer so you wont be struggling for your tipple of choice, including whisky of course. The staff are also lovely and i have no complaint with them... But, the speed of service is bonkers, 4 courses in 1 hour. The kitchen is running at speed, you dont get time to enjoy the theatre of the meal which is a shame. Starters came out whilst eating the bread, starters gone, wham, heres you main which was taken away whilst i was eating my last mouthful then 5 mins for starters then loitering for the bill. When we said we didnt want anything else, we were told "Thats fine, take your time", so why so fast! There was 3 tables when we arrived so not busy so why the rush! Its a nice place with nice food, you just dont get to enjoy the experience as you feel like a duck being fed for foie gras. That can only be the kitchen not the waiting staff but the staff are in a rush too which is a shame. I know thay have a 1.5hr slot per table but it wasnt a big deal on our visit with a 40% capacity. This is the only thing that spoilt our evening. When you want fast food go to BurgerKing when you go out for a meal you want relaxation not indigestion. To conclude great chef,great looking place way too fast, please slow down you deserve it.

    Steve was fantastic and looked after us really well and taught us so many interesting facts about the local whisky history and production. Our Wagyu steaks for dinner were delicious and amazingly sourced from a farm less than a mile away. All local produce was delicious. A really lovely evening.

    Great use of local ingredients well put together in the dishes. You probably need to be a meat eater to really enjoy the meal - could do with more vegetables for us. That being said, we will definitely be going back.

    Excellent standard of food, lobster ravioli and braised brisket was amazing. Buffalo crocket slightly dry may have been better with two smaller crockets with more gravy for dipping. Also, no side dish options on menu such as seasonal vegetables or salad. Otherwise food was faultless
