Review on The Dungeon Restaurant at Dalhousie Castle
This legendary 13th Century fortress surrounded by acres of parkland and overlooking the river Esk is just a few miles from the city of Edinburgh. Steeped in local history this stunning building started its current role as a hotel in 1972 and there can be few places to rival its romantic beauty.
Step back in time as you descend the ancient steps to the barrel vaulted dungeons where you will find the award winning Dungeon Restaurant. The kitchen draws on supplies from local farms, estates, and fisheries for a contemporary repertoire of dishes ranging from roast partridge on a rockette salad with toasted pine kernels and caramelised shallots to fillet of rainbow trout with roast langoustine in tarragon with a crushed pea & mint risotto.
Desserts provide an enticing mix of flavours and the wine list is suitably aristocratic with pedigree clarets and burgundies backed up by plentiful treasures from the New World.
For a more informal meal give The Orangery a try with its lighter menu of modern Scottish cuisine with more Continental influences.
