The Dining Room

Local connections give our head chef access to game from HM The Queen’s estate at Balmoral. Salmon plucked from the River Dee also makes a seasonal appearance on our menus. Our Scottish meats are farm-assured, while our steaks are traditionally matured for a minimum of 28 days to ensure maximum flavour, tenderness and quality.

“The food is excellent, I had the wood pigeon for starter and venison for main and it was spectacular. Chilling out by the wood fire is great, the staff are all lovely and the location is great.”
