Autumn Menu

We hope we have created a good variety of dishes that will tempt your taste buds and of course always grateful for any feedback.

The Scottish Borders have a wide and fantastic range of food along which we have tried to incorporate throughout this menu.  Plus, where possible, we utilise items from our own 400 years old walled garden and across the 28 acres of grounds and woodlands.

One of our fish suppliers, Douglas Ross, is based on the Borders’ coast at Eyemouth and as you travel across land, we use prime Borders meat through Gilmour’s, bakery products from Peebles’ own baker Forsyth and lots of items from the small providers such as Belhaven smokehouse and Tweed Valley venison to name a few.

We believe the blend of local and international products creates a plate of food that not only looks good, tastes delicious but still satisfies the most discerning palate.

To compliment the fine food, we offer you a nice selection of wines, many selected by our owners following visits to the winery itself.  Also local drinks feature, with beers from four Borders breweries, apple juice from the area, local gins and new items appearing regularly; with the Borders distillery coming to fruition, we have to wait though for a little longer for their first dram.

We really hope you enjoy your dining experience and Chef will be more than happy to talk with you if you wish, as will the team to make sure you have a great evening.

If you would like anything special, we shall endeavour to provide and if you have any allergies, please let us know.
