Dined at Spey Valley Sports Bar restaurant and been treated rudely by one of the chefs named Derrick. The foods were ok but the serving was confusing without labelling of which were mains and which were sides. I then complained to the restaurant manager about the confusion and the chef attitude. Although the manager was helpful enough but failed to... More

Just spent a really dissappointing hour in the Asian buffet! Leaflet promises Thai, Chinese, Indian n Japanese for just £12.95. Reality was just Thai n Chinese but all the dishes tasted the same! The lemon chicken was inedible- the red Thai curry tasted the same as the sweet n sour. I would've tasted more if I'd eaten a pot noodle!... More

Had lunch here. Restaurant was deserted and cavernous but waitresses helpful. Food was disappointing - works canteen standard cooking and not much choice. The only roast was turkey - so no choice at all in the "carvery". With a little more imagination and better cooking this could be a decent place. As it stands there is little incentive to eat...

At 12pm I bought a sandwich from the restaurant. It had lovely, good quality ham on it, but it was overpowered by huge slices of tomato, which were about 1cm wide. I removed the tomato and some of the lettuce. There was also cucumber on there, which when I pulled it out, it was transparent and limp. It looked very... More

Very pleased with the fantastic service that we received at the carvery today. We couldn't fault anything. The restaurant was clean and staff, chef included, were very friendly and welcoming. Nothing was too much trouble for the staff and we will definitely be back. The waiter was very efficient but we were certainly not rushed in any way, able to... More

I'm so annoyed I'm writing this in the carvery itself. We booked in for a family meal and before we'd finished our starters they told us they were clearing everything up if we wanted main meals. The servers were gruff at best and although keen for us to drink more they certainly didn't want us in their restaurant. The only... More
