  • 5 star review  Excellent food at reasonable prices and with a spectacular view of the loch, the wildfowl and the fly fishermen - a tranquil scene. An excellent range of meal types ranging from breakfast through lunch to high tea and evening meals at weekends. The building is not as yet finished however the dining area is spacious and the tables are bespoke and beautifully made. The personal touch of the many displays that link to the many 'Laird's' who have occupied Craufurdland over the years adds much extra interest.

    5 star review  I enjoyed lunch at the Laird's Table on Saturday and was very impressed. The initial impression is one of quality, both in terms of environment and customer service. Staff were extremely pleasant and genuinely appeared interested in the customers which makes a refreshing change. The food was first class-both the smoked hake fishcakes and smoked salmon caesar salad were fresh and obviously made using quality ingredients. It was also one of the best glasses of rose champagne I've tasted! A very enjoyable lunch in a beautiful setting and one which I will definitely be repeating.
