Review on Rufflets Country House, Terrace Restaurant
Rufflets Country House is one of the oldest-established and highest-quality country house hotels in Scotland. Built in 1924 as a private mansion, the imposing turreted residence is set in 10 acres of stunning gardens, and has been in the same family ownership since 1952.
Following a refit, the Terrace Restaurant (overlooking the formal terraced gardens, of course) is now done out with light faux wood panelling, high-backed chairs and striking Scottish still life prints on deep terracotta walls.
The kitchen makes use of local produce and Rufflets' home-grown vegetables for flexible, seasonal menu with a contemporary slant, lots of intricate touches and a fondness for stuffing (pork fillet boudin with cranberries and Macadamia nuts, say). Elsewhere, McSween's haggis appears with red onion marmalade in a tarte Tatin, East Neuk turbot gets a brioche and fennel seed crust, and braised Fife lamb shank comes with pearl barley risotto. Buccleuch steaks also feature strongly, and desserts might include White Russian iced parfait with caramelised bananas.
