Glenfalloch has a fabulous menu and uses tasty fresh organic produce. We loved this philosophy. The food was delicious full of delicate flavours. It was also complex dishes that I wouldn’t cook myself. A stunning venue, 5 star Cuisine. Highly recommend

The food is just divine and gives your tastebuds a zap. I have been back a few times and have never been disappointed. Don’t feel like I have over indulged and the gardens are beautiful to look at whilst enjoying your meal.
