Review on Dryburgh Abbey Hotel, The Tweed Restaurant
Dryburgh Abbey Hotel is a grandiose Victorian baronial mansion surrounded by acres of parkland by the banks of the Tweed. Naturally, there are panoramic views from the first-floor Tweed Restaurant, which now has a new contemporary look. The peaceful setting overlooking the river sets the stage for a daily menu of exciting, up-to-the-minute dishes.
The kitchen is keen to source locally for its menu with many of the herbs and vegetables sourced from their own garden. To start you might opt for the smoked duck with rhubarb chutney and orange segments or Red Mullet Escabeche, marinated red mullet with orange, red onion and crispy leaves. Main courses take in braised daube of beef with roasted shallots, Colcannon and red wine reduction or from the sea there's chunky cod fillet, olive oil crushed potatoes. green beans, chorizo and cherry tomatoes. Finish with desserts in the shape of banana and toffee crumble tart served with crème anglaise or a traditional sticky toffee pudding paired with butterscotch sauce and vanilla ice cream.
The wine list is an international slate featuring a good spread from across the world interestingly all arranged by grape variety except for the fine and rare section which features a good selection of heavyweights from the old world.
