Was at the dormitory for a meal and drinks on Saturday night I have to say meal was lovely most staff were awful. Waiters didn't know what they were doing or what was in the foods as one of the group had a food allergy twice he had to check. he had dirty hands which put me off slightly, the... More

Usually this place is excellent, but this time I tried the tandoori lamb and it came with incredibly spicy sauces on the plate (they really should be in small dishes on the side) and the green coriander one was really over the top hot, and I am used to hot sauces. They need to segregate them and also warn the... More

we have been going to the dormy for a few years now and love it every time. it is a great atmosphere and the new bar they have added is a great addition. its superb for the casual sandwich or a sitdown dinner over looking the golf course watching the players finish up their game. ideal would highly recomend

Recommend that you book a table otherwise you might be disappointed. Saying that they managed to fit in the 4 of us. We all ordered fillet steak. Which seemed forever & a day to come. When it arrived unfortunately the steak was cold. My partner & I opted to keep the steak but his parents sent theirs back. The side... More

As with a previous reviewer we have been coming here for a number of years and have seen the changes take place, and The Dormy has always served good food albeit at a price. However this is Gleneagles so don't come here if you want a cheap meal! Gleneagles and The Dormy are much more than just somewhere to eat.... More

Had 2 lunches here whilst staying at the hotel. The meals are massive and good quality and very tasty. The service is fantastic as you would expect from Gleneagles. Love the atmosphere here very relaxed and informal

Even if you have never swung a golf club, The Dormey is a great place to eat and enjoy the company of family and friends. The set up is great; varied sitting and dining areas complete with open fire pits and on view cooking. Among other things we had cullen skink, crab cakes, haggis bonbons, baked salmon, tandoor chicken and... More

Lots of child friendly options. Great choices for adults. Quick service. A little walk from the main hotel although if wearing heels or raining you can get a lift over.

I completely understand that this is the club house for a world famous golf course and a fabulous five star hotel. However the prices are ridiculous for what is on offer. The food is good. But it's not £17 for a burger good, £22 for three small pieces of tandoori chicken good or £4 for a side of mushy peas... More

Description
Relax with friends while taking in the exquisite views of The King's and The Queen's courses: The Dormy is the perfect place for that well-earned drink after a long round. Our clubhouse gives a warm welcome to all: golfers and non-golfers alike. You can order comfort-food favourites such as fish and chips, mac'n'cheese, bangers'n'mash or something spicy from the tandoor oven in the main restaurant, which overlooks the 1st hole of The Queen's course.
