Dinner for Two
From moorland game to mountain lamb, the Strathearn serves up only the best in local produce and prides itself on the exceptional quality of its luxury Scottish and French cuisine. The elegant art deco setting creates a backdrop to remember, with an innovative menu that has been conjured by a team of award-winning chefs including the famous Andrew Fairlie. The Strathearn is the heart of Gleneagles, and is the place to enjoy an ultimately authentic Scottish evening. If it’s a romantic experience you’re seeking, dinner for two at the Strethearn has all the ingredients for a truly memorable evening together.
The hotel’s Christmas gift vouchers have become a popular way to treat an extra special someone, and one of the best ways to spend a voucher is on a deliciously extravagant afternoon tea in The Bar. With a range of sweet and savoury treats, the world’s best tea and suitably ostentatious cake stands, this experience is the perfect treat for best friends, mums and anyone with a sweet tooth.
If the mouth-watering tastes of the Mediterranean are more your thing, book a table at Gleneagles’ Deseo, a vibrant restaurant perfect for casual business dinners or memorable meals with friends and family. The atmospheric, warm ambience provides the perfect setting, and the range of rich and flavoursome food includes wood fired pizzas and fresh fish. Perch on the barstools and watch chefs create culinary masterpieces close-up or get cosy in your own private booth. /
