Floor-to-ceiling windows celebrate the shoreline panorama from morning to night, from breakfast to dinner. We find our inspiration in local Scottish produce: local catches of scallops and fish regularly feature on that evening’s menu.
A light breakfast of fruits, cereals, yoghurts, toast with Scottish butter and jams, coffee and a selection of teas. Or all of the above and a menu that includes Eggs Benedict, cinnamon French toast, peat smoked salmon, Finnan haddie and our house plate of smoked back bacon, farm egg, highlander sausage, haggis, Charles Macleod Stornoway black pudding and a grilled tomato. The vegetarian house plate has vegetarian sausage.
Seafood is locally-landed and meat comes from the Crerar Home Farm pedigree herds. Steaks are dry aged for 28 days before meeting the coal-fired Josper grill, which sears and chars for a unique texture and flavour.
Lunchtime buzzes with lively lighter bites executed with refined flair. By night, Hickory exudes composure and confidence. Sweeping curves and coppery crushed velvet of intimate booths usher in an evening of sensory delight. Marble table tops are assuredly cool, complemented by welcoming soft leather seating.
With a relationship going back many years, our wines are supplied to us by wine merchants De Burgh.
Our Squirrel Room welcomes small gatherings of up to 18 guests who wish a little added privacy for a celebration, special occasion or dinner. From important birthdays or anniversaries to festive gatherings, we work with you to create a hand-picked menu, bespoke table setting and room décor.
Our coastal location is home to some of Scotland’s - and indeed the world’s - best scallops, lobster, langoustines, and sea bass. We work with local farms, suppliers and artisan producers as much as we can to bring together the tastes of the area and the season for our menus.
“Dinner on both nights was superb ... the choice was good, varied and they catered for my wife who has dietary requirements. If I had any comments or advice it would be to keep doing exactly what they are doing.”
Tipping Our Team
Most of our guests now prefer to pay via debit or credit card and be able to include a service charge for great service. To make this easier we have added an automatic service charge - we’ve made it a default 10% which you can change to any percentage you wish, including no service charge.
Our teams have always shared service charges and this is no different - every penny you give is shared equally by our teams through our “Fair Fund”. There is no administration cost and nothing is retained by the company, 100% of what you give is guaranteed to go to our team.
Service charge is entirely optional, if you would like us to remove it, you need only ask.
