“Taste our Best”
Serving Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Tuesday 6pm-8pm
Osprey Restaurant Bistro Evening Meals (Pre-Orders required by 5pm)
Enjoying Scottish cuisine on the banks of a tranquil Scottish loch, especially al fresco in the warmer months, should be on the ‘to do’ list of every visitor to the Scottish Highlands. When we designed the Osprey Restaurant we wanted to create an atmospheric space that would allow diners to really savour this unique experience. All-around picture windows, with French doors opening onto the Osprey Deck and loch-side terrace, ensure that wherever our diners are seated, they are sure to enjoy uninterrupted views of the Loch of Aboyne and the Cairngorms National Park beyond. Beautiful by day, when the sun sets behind the mountains, the Osprey Restaurant takes on a whole new atmosphere, creating one of the most exceptional natural light shows to be found anywhere in Scotland. If you are fortunate, you may just see an osprey power-diving into the loch to catch their dinner – a little bonus with our compliments.
In Room Oven Ready Meals
Sunday, Monday and Wednesday
New for 2022, we are pleased to offer our brand new in room culinary experience. Following a long day exploring, or travelling some guests enquired about a room service option so we have reinvented the wheel and given the choice and control to our customer – a prepared self catering if you will. The new in room menu is an amalgamation of the most popular dishes from the restaurant and some new flavours and dishes. The packages not only includes freshly prepared food, our new food preparation trolleys have a combination microwave oven, fridge, crockery and cutlery. This in room oven ready option is available on Sunday, Monday and Wednesday while our restaurant is closed. Pre-ordered by 12 midday we will have your delicious 2 course meal in your room ready to be cooked at your convenience. Drinks orders from the bar to compliment your meal could be a bottle of prosecco in an ice bucket or a selection of Scottish Beers stored in the fridge. Download the room menu as a .pdf here.
Our high culinary standards and use of only the finest ingredients, sourced locally from ‘Scotland’s Natural Larder’, have earned us accreditation with the Visit Scotland ‘Taste our Best’ scheme and the AA Good Dinner Awards. We pride ourselves on offering our diners a satisfying choice of classic Scottish Highland cuisine, popular dishes from the Mediterranean, and a few surprises too. Our breakfast and dinner menus vary as the seasons progress and are complimented by a daily specials board, allowing our chef to prepare dishes made from produce fresh from local markets. Every dish that leaves our kitchens is unique, prepared to your wishes, and cooked as you like it. We cater for special diets, including vegetarian, gluten free and vegan, and we are always happy to advise guests with food allergies. * Please note that the following are sample menus and that dishes will can from week to week.
The Single Malt Whisky Bar
Fully complementing the fine dining experience of our Osprey Restaurant, our Single Malt Whisky Bar provides guests with a cordial setting in which to enjoy an aperitif or relaxing after dinner drink. No visit to ‘The Lodge’ would be complete without sampling a wee dram of uisge beatha (the water of life) and we have a choice of over sixty malts and blends for you to choose from. We boast an extensive wine list, carefully selected from some of the best vineyards in the world, with our private collection of Bordeaux Cru Classe wines taking pride of place. Cocktails are a speciality and we can mix timeless classics like a Harvey Wallbanger or a trendy tipple like SOB. Or if you prefer a non-alcoholic drink, we have a large selection of juices and carbonated drinks, not to mention our freshly ground Italian Lavazza coffee. Slainte Mhath!
