    Thought has been put into the decor creating a warm professional setting. The menu offered an excellent range of choices as did the wine list.

    6 of us went to Rothesay Rooms for dinner. The staff were so friendly and welcoming. The food was sublime, beautifully presented and delicious. We had clean plates all round.

    We came here because of the concept behind the restaurant....and we came back because of the overall, service and because of the beautiful interior design. A truly wonderful place!
