We had a great meal, great service and was reasonably priced. We will definitely return if in the area again. Well worth a visit. 😊
A delightful lunch with an ex-colleague in a bar with a cosy and friendly atmosphere - good food and service as ever Looking forward to returning very soon
Good food, atmosphere and a nice selections of drinks. Staff are friendly and knowledgeable on current food and drink selection. Service is quick and with a smile. Very happy with my second visit. My wife had the breaded Camembert to start which was lovely. I had the chicken and black pudding terrine which was nice but a bit cold and hard, still nice once eaten! For main course I had the small fish and chips as I wasn't sure of sizes but would definitely go for the large the next time. I think small is probably fine for a light bite and possibly a hungry child. Fish was well cooked and batter not too oily. Came with mushy peas and tartar sauce. My wife had the chicken in peppercorn sauce with haggis bon bons which was well cooked and was satisfying. We had a bottle of pinot grigio also, which came in a chiller with ice. Glasses were clean. All in all a nice pub and restaurant. Will visit again.
Booked a table for 2 at 6pm and we arrived bang on time. We were shown to our table straight away with no fuss. The bar was packed and very lively, but the adjacent restaurant area was peaceful but with a friendly buzz. It is intimate but also private and very comfortable and conversation is easily heard. In spite of how busy the bar and restaurant were, the service was slick and perfectly timed. The menu was good and the food was excellent. Prices were very reasonable. Overall, it isn't hard to see why the Riccarton Inn is busy. Great staff, great food and great atmosphere. I'd recommend to anyone.
Hadn't been for months. Came as a recommendation from a family member who had been a few weeks ago. We usually go to the sister pub Kinleith Mill and we have been on and off over the past few years but have tired of their menu...it just never changes . Our server Julie was very attentive and patient as the menu was so good we couldn't decide. Starters we're v.good and mains were huge...especially the fish & chips...Food was served hot and we didn't have long to wait. Will defiantly recommend and return .
A comfortable overnight stay. Thankful for the fan heater provided in the bedroom as it was a bit on the cold side in the room to begin with but soon warmed up. Really lovely meal in the evening with good service. I gave a 5 rating because in the morning the breakfast service wasn't so good although once our order for a cooked breakfast was finally taken it was delicious when it arrrived, as was the coffee. I would definitely stay again at the Riccarton Inn as it is excellent value for money.
The Riccarton inn continues to provide excellent service and food at very reasonable prices. There is a friendly atmosphere from the moment you walk in, which is a credit to the staff, even when they are busy. I regularly take visiting friends there and have not once had someone who hasn't enjoyed their visit. We continue to eat and drink here for occasions such as a family dinner out, to more formal celebrations.
There were real fires burning in the grates when we arrived for lunch. The country-style pub-restaurant is very welcoming; we sat in a booth facing the bar, which was well stocked with a full range of alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks. The food and service were excellent, and the quantities were generous. Indeed, I did not have room for dessert. I will happily recommend the Riccarton Inn to others.
