Review on Restaurant at Knockderry House

Gloriously situated by the banks of stunning Loch Long (private moorings are available if you want to arrive by boat), this grand baronial hotel still retains many of its imposing architectural features - including turrets and arched doorways.

The restaurant is done out in true laird's style, with panelled walls, open fireplaces, stained glass windows and great views over the loch, although the food strikes a more modern note. Much produce comes from the local waters, pastures and moors and the kitchen makes good use of the bounty.

Lunch and early-evening meals are mostly 'light bites' and easy dishes, while dinner brings on the big guns. Crispy cod cheek with squid, octopus and cuttlefish bouillabaisse or 'bacon 'n egg' (rolled pig's head with bacon lardons and poached egg) are typical ways to begin, while mains might range from braised Perthshire lamb with moussaka and seared kidneys to pollack with cauliflower purée, Highland burgundy potatoes and Parma ham. Cheeses are from Ian Mellis, and desserts could feature roasted plums with rice pudding and toasted marshmallow.
