THE HORSESHOE RESTAURANT
The Horseshoe Restaurant with Rooms has been reviewed for its inimitable style, its outstanding food and its refreshingly unpretentious yet polished service in The Times, The Scotsman and numerous national and international magazines.
We look after a small number of guests at a time but those guests are looked after very, very well. There are just ten tables in the restaurant's main room with four more tables in a second room, which can also be used for private dining, for parties of eight to twelve guests. We're open for lunch and dinner from Wednesday through until Sunday. In the evenings we offer a short a la carte at £50 and a tasting menu at £60 for seven courses or £75 for ten courses. The tasting menu is a surprise but if you tell us prior to dinner what you don't like and what you don't eat, then we can always work around that. With our own kitchen garden and daily doorstep deliveries from our local suppliers, what we can promise is that the tasting menu will always utilise the freshest ingredients.
The restaurant is complemented by a charming lounge with luxurious sofas, chesterfields and a wood burning stove. This is where aperitifs are served. We always have numerous Champagnes by the half bottle, at least one Champagne or method champenoise open for by the glass, boutique Scottish gins, imported vodkas and fresh juices.
We are recommended by the Michelin Guide, the AA Restaurant Guide and Stevenson's Scotland's Good Hotel and Food Guide and the Good Hotel Guide.
