10/10 for the Roslin Beach hotel and restaurant. The atmosphere and decorations really set the Christmassy mood. The waiting staff were friendly, helpful, attentive and knowledgeable about the menu. I opted for Prawn Cocktail, Roast Turkey and Tiramisu. All delicious especially the Turkey Roast dinner which was of huge portions. The tiramisu I found a little too creamy but nonetheless... More

The great food, the decor and the atmosphere made this a great choice for a special dinner with close friends. The staff were friendly and welcoming and our waitress was attentive and helpful. Fine dining, but not too formal.

Stopped here for a cocktail. Ordered one of the best Pina Coladas I've ever had (and I've certainly sampled way more than my share). Husband had a Bloody Mary, mixed to perfection...he ordered extra spicy...he got extra spicy, nice! Great views from the terrace.

Myself and 3 family members visited this afternoon for 'festive afternoon tea' I had booked several weeks in advance and told them my sister is a vegan and they said that was fine and they could accommodate her. It was chaos when we arrived with poor customer service from the outset with one front of house completely ignoring us and... More

The Roslin hotel environment is a typical seaside hotel with added glitz. The hotel's illuminations must be so bright that they can be seen from the planes on the flight path to the local airport. However, the restaurant fails to shine. Service is inconsistent, drinks were served swiftly but after more than half an hour no food had appeared. The... More

My wife and I rarely get to eat out together during the day, as our jobs keep us busy. But yesterday we both just happened to be at home with a couple of hours free, so we took ourselves along to The Roslin for lunch. We were early, noon, and walked in to a really friendly greeting from the restaurant... More

I have just arrived home from the Roslin hotel after spending weekend there celebrating my 60th birthday. We had an afternoon tea party in the Bay Room which was absolutely gorgeous - Amy the events manager was wonderful and nothing too much trouble from the time I started organising it in March. The staff on the day were magnificent and... More

Waited 10 mins to be seated in nearly empty restaurant. Service was slack. Food order mixed on plates. Constant interruptions whilst eating, but kept waiting inbetween courses. Steak was good and very tender, one tiny tomato and one small mushroom. Dessert was flavourless but very sweet. Thought it very expensive considering the terrible service. Would not go back or recommend.... More
