    It is 4 years since i stayed here and things have certainly changed.

    In a general sense covid has obviously affected things and you cannot blame the owners for cutting back on a few things.

    You used to get a bottle of prosecco  in your room, plus a few other treats, that sort of thing.

    The Copper Dog restaurant does good food and the breakfast was also good so all things considered ok so far.

    The whisky bar has lost it's buzz a little, all the bar stools have gone and covid has hampered it a little by obviously limiting numbers so you need to make allowances for that and I am also assuming the fact that quality bottles cost a packet now has affected how many bottles they have to offer?

    I would estimate that the amount of bottles to get drams from is down 25% at least and there were less stand out bottles to choose from. They had the glitzy new Glenfarclas decanters but they were really for show and to pad the display out.

    If you come in a place like this you expect to pay a  premium but 4 years ago there was much more value to be had and stand out drams were also in reach price wise.

    Now that is not the case and £200 bottles in the shops you were paying around £20 a shot which is the norm now,  but some bottles here were much more.

    On the plus side there was enough on offer at £5 and under to make sure you had a good night which is a plus point and the staff are friendly.

    I still like the place and recommend it, but once restrictions are lifted, they need to sort things out a little, there were empty bottles on the shelves, which should not happen, unless as I suspect  they were there to pad their depleted stock out and give the impression they had more to offer?

    Enkel in de Copper Dog iets gegeten en helaas niet naar de whisky-bar gegaan.

    Eten zeker lekker en aanrader om te passeren. Over de whisky-kaart kan ik niets zeggen maar al het overige zoals bediening en eten meer dan de moeite waard. Aanrader!

    We booked a dinner in the Copper Dog with our trip. The meal included 3 courses with a matching whisky. Service was great and so was the food and the whisky. After we finished the dinner we went upstairs to have a dram at the whisky bar. Worth comming back to in the future.
