Private Dining

Private Dining Selection 2013


We are delighted to offer you our set menus for 2013 suitable for parties of 20 or more guests.

The menus have been devised to suit most tastes and are based on our popular best sellers from 2010. They are carefully balanced and we would ask if at all possible that you do not change the existing menus, however we do appreciate that you may well have a favorite dish you would like us to add or something you would like to change so please just ask and we will do our best to accommodate your request.

Dietary Requirements

Please let us know in advance of any dietary requirements that your party may have and we will ensure that these are met in full and where possible chef will provide alternatives for the guest to choose from.

All about our Suppliers

We are genuinely very proud of the East Lothian suppliers that we deal with, very little is purchased outside the local area and we often have first pick of the best produce around, quite literally as the chef often stops off on his way into work to get his vegetables from Chapel Farm where Graham Elder grows the most wonderful organic vegetables. Our eggs are from the Gosford Estate and our meat is provided by John Anderson and Sons on the High Street – a quality family butcher with too many awards to his name to mention.

Our fish is either caught locally or provided by JKT in Musselburgh. From March onwards most of our shellfish comes from the harbor in North Berwick. We are registered as a first fish buyer with Marine Scotland which means we can buy straight from the boats, bringing you the best fish possible. If you would like to include a fish course or add locally caught lobster, crab or Langoustines to your menu just let us know.

Our Philosophy

Almost everything that comes out of our kitchen is homemade, nothing is purchased pre prepared. We start by making the best homemade stock and take it from there. Bread is baked daily, all ice creams and sorbets are made in house, and chips are even cut from real potatoes! Our desserts are made by Jane Buglass who in our opinion is the best dessert maker bar none in the county.
