Review on The Peat Inn

Geoffrey and Katherine Smeddle took over this legendary gastronomic Mecca in 2006 and wasted no time in bagging just about every award possible culminating in a Michelin Star in 2010. Geoffrey trained under Michelin starred chefs Herbert Berger and Chris Galvin while Katherine, with her passion for the industry, focuses on front of house and the two, working with their small dedicated team, will ensure your time at this famous restaurant with rooms is enjoyable and memorable.

Meals are served in three intimate little dining rooms and the kitchen, where Geoffrey is passionate about fresh, local produce, sends out a succession of exemplary dishes with bags of flavour and panache. Seared scallops with fennel purée and basil velouté could start things off, before Harbourn Estate partridge, Cairngorm venison or roast sea bream with crushed peas, langoustines and shellfish bisque. To follow, there might be roast figs with damson purée and praline ice cream or Scottish strawberry cheesecake with pannacotta.

The Peat Inn wine list is as legendary as the place itself: a top-drawer collection of more than 400 bins, with patrician clarets and burgundies, loads of stuff from smaller growers and a thorough exploration of the winemaking globe. For those wanting to stay over – and who wouldn't? – there are eight delightful suites in The Residence, a beautiful self-contained building next door to the inn.

The Peat Inn is also featured in: Michelin Guide, Good Food Guide, AA Guide
