Glasshouse Restaurant at Airth Castle

Posted on: October 5, 2011     |     0 comments

After battling through a wet West Lothian for an hour, utilising my phone as a poor GPS system, we finally arrived at the stunning Airth Castle.
We had booked dinner for 8.30 and arrived at 8pm to have pre - dinner drinks in the very comfy lounge area. After a refreshing libation, we were seated in the very impressive Glasshouse Restaurant. The restaurant is a huge glass pyramid, reminiscent of The Louvre in Paris and we hoped the food was going to follow the Parisian theme.
The table D'hôte menu at the Glasshouse restuarant was mouth watering just to read, with 7 choices for each course. For the first course my dining partner chose the goats cheese salad and I opted for the pork, apple, pancetta terrine. Both dishes were excellent, presented beautifully and my choice was full of flavour and great textures.

For  main course I opted for calves liver, while my companion went for sea bass. The calves liver was cooked perfectly, nice and pink and a stunning melt in the mouth texture. As for my partners fish, well I hardly heard a peep while the course was devoured!! Accompanying this dish we had a great bottle of Australian Riesling, which had a fantastic price point.
After a nice break between courses, desserts were next up. Vanilla Crème Brulee and Chocolate Brownie with Praline Ice Cream. Once again both  dishes were fantastic, and truly fitting finale to a great meal. With coffee, tablet and fudge to end the evening, we paid great compliments to the waiting team who had been discreet and knowledgeable to any questions asked. We then headed back to our stunning castle room, content and for myself anyway, stretching the waistline of my jeans!
Dinner, Bed and Breakfast at Airth Castle was £110 and for this price was exceptional value for money.
