Food and Dining in Scotland

Dining at Crerar Hotels is all about indulging in good food and fine wine. Our chefs source quality local produce wherever possible, and each takes care and attention to complete their menu with local delights. Working with suppliers close to our hotels and within the community, we are lucky to be in some of the best locations for exceptional ingredients, including Loch Fyne oysters and Isle of Mull cheddar.

We believe our food is great and worth shouting about. To prove it, Loch Fyne Hotel & Spa, Thainstone House and Golf View Hotel & Spa have all been awarded an AA rosette for the quality of food and service.  

So if you're a real foodie looking for that something extra special in your next break, try one of our dining recommendations.
