Is steak is your love? Then you have come to the right place… Stockman’s bar is a place you can sample some of the best beef steaks in Aberdeenshire prepared on our Spanish Josper grill.

Homely and informal, Stockman’s is located on the lower ground floor and can be easily accessed direct from the main car park without having to walk through the hotel. There is a real feeling of satisfaction as our guests tuck into steaks, burgers and grill dishes with daily changing specials from the board.

The seating is comfy and relaxed, and there are little nooks where guests can snuggle up with a glass of red from the extensive wine list, whilst tucking into a piece of Aberdeen Angus steak.

Stockman’s serves local ales, fine wines from a huge list - by the glass or by the bottle.


Steak night is every Thursday from 5.00pm until close.
Guests can choose any one of Chef’s Josper grilled steaks for only £16.95.


Originally created to tame the hunger of mid-afternoon, afternoon tea has long become a much-loved tradition in Aberdeenshire, enjoyed by many.  Afternoon tea at Thainstone House can be taken by the log fire in the Drawing Room, the Club Room or one of the comfortable sofas in the upper and lower gallery, served from 12pm to 5pm daily.

Afternoon tea works well with an extra bit of sparkle – add a glass of Prosecco or Champagne.


Our chefs are committed to sourcing the best quality ingredients and local produce where possible.  Relationships are key and the kitchen team have fostered great relationships to secure the best local produce.

We work with John Davidson butchers in Inverurie for the best prime cuts of meat, Turriffs of Montrose for fruits and veg, and Campbells from Peterhead for fish to name but a few.

Our chefs fare well at the World Porridge Making Championships each year so our porridge takes some beating! 

The Green Lady restaurant is a 2 AA Rosette winning restaurant set in an elegant room with dramatic high ceilings, Wedgewood green walls, grand paintings and large picture windows overlooking the parkland. 

Guests start the day in The Green Lady with a full Crerar breakfast or a light continental choice from the breakfast buffet. 

In the evening this impressive room with dimmed chandelier lighting and candlelight is where our fine dining six course taster and à la carte dinner menus are served.  

Dress code is all about being comfortable, so smart casual will suit most.

Young diners can feast on smaller portions from the main menu, or for those up to the age of 15, from our special young diners menu, specially created for those little people looking for something a little different.

We try and cater for every dietary preference, just ask us.

We believe greatly in locally sourced ingredients, high quality and seasonal produce for our menus, which means occasionally dishes from our advertised menus may be unavailable. 

Whisky in Scotland is plentiful and with Speyside and Highland Breweries not far away, trying a whisky for the first time in our Drawing Room by the fire could be quite an experience.  Cocktails are quite the thing of late and at Thainstone House we have a varied menu which includes classics such as Mojito and Long Island Iced Tea.

Wines have been specially selected to complement the dining experience at Thainstone. Like many hoteliers, we love our wines and Champagnes, which are available in magnums for diehard fans and those celebrating. Our wine list is comprehensive; including Prosecco, sparlking wines, rosé and a selection of reds and whites, sorted by Old and New World origins. The list was compiled with the help of our trusted personal master of wines, Tarquin de Burgh, so you know you're in good hands.

'It is always very enjoyable helping to put a wine list together for Restauranteurs who are foodies. When clients understand and love flavours it makes our task so much easier.  When Crerar Hotels asked us to help them develop their wine list we felt it important to make sure we knew their varied menus and so we thought it only right to try all their tasty dishes.  A few inches wider, a couple of £'s lighter and most importantly with a good understanding of Crerar Hotels guests' expectations, we met up with Paddy Crerar along with a dedicated wine and food committee to discuss our ideas. Crerar Hotels clearly understand food, flavour and love their wines too. Putting together their varied wine lists proved to be hugely rewarding. Not only because Crerar Hotels kept an open mind to suggestion but also because their approach was to ensure their lists offered some super bargains too. Their lists offer something for everyone and are also very well priced, especially when you decide to go further into the wine list.

We are rather proud of what we have put together thus far and are excited about what is still to come!'
