Whilst my wife was out with a friend the friend's husband and I went to The Cornkist Restaurant at The New Inn in Ellon. The meal was fantastic. He had never been there before and raved about it to both our wives. Would definitely recommend.

The Cornkist is always a treat. The portions are big and you will never come out feeling hungry! The staff are friendly and the food is good. There is plently of parking near the river across the road. A family favourite.

They do actually have quite a good selection of non meat dishes and if you east fish this is also on the menu. Bring your appetite, their portions are definitely on the healthier side.
