    Amazing tasty food, pity the pepper sauce was served fridge cold however the food was delicious. Small tables so stressful seating thinking things were going to be knocked off. Service was ok for the time of the year as it was busy. All in all a lovely evening thanks glad we booked.

    The food was really good. I loved the ambiance. My only issue was being seated at one table. To be moved for a larger party and than watching no one sit there. Other than that the food was good.

La formule de dégustation est très intéressante pour tout le monde qui désire découvrir ou approfondir le whisky, la nourriture est vraiment bonne avec des serveurs très serviables !

    A bit of a mixed bag of opinions from our group of 6. Service was excellent. Regarding the food 4 of us had the Ardbeg menu and 2 found the steak not at the standard they were expecting. Overall we felt that it was a bit overpriced.

    It’s not my first experience at the whiski rooms and all my experiences have been positive. I have booked in for lunch at 12 noon, however, arriving doors were still closed and other patrons were also waiting to get in. As always, the food and drinks were exceptional and the service by the staff was efficient, well mannered and all the staff met us with a smile and a can do attitude. Overall another great lunch at this lovely eatery
