The 'Deen Scene: Ardoe House Hotel - Part 2

A note from Joelle... 

♫♪'Victory' - Cry Of The Celts ♫♪

Welcome to part 2 of my Ardoe House Hotel adventure. Have a look at Part 1 if you haven't already!
This post is all about the scrumptious food Claire and I got to eat in the Hotel restaurant.
The Dining experience in Ardoe House is rather special, as you can choose from two menus: the luxurious Blair's menu or the 

I think I'll let the pictures do the talking in this post. Enjoy!
When we got to our hotel room, this lovely selection of treats was waiting for us on the table. How sweet! D'geddit?
The slate slab was a nice touch too. No word of a lie: these chocs were devoured within seconds!
Monkfish & Squid with Pork Belly, Sprout Shells, Red Wine Jus and (what I believe to be)  a Squid Ink gel base
It was one of the best dishes I have eaten in years.
Claire went for this Roe Deer, Loin, Shoulder, Beetroot and Blackberry main.
She loves deer and she loved this dish!
For pudding, Claire went for this lovely-looking Yoghurt Panna Cotta, with Heritage Apples, Red Currants and Gingerbread
smiles all round
I went for the (humongous) Macerated Cherry Souffle and Sorbet
[insert multiple heart-eyed emojis here]
It didn't really taste like a pate, more like blended pulled pork. But it was still really delicious, with generous portions!
Pork & Ale Sausages, Arran Mustard Mash and Pale Ale Jus
As you can see, the portions are large and they are not stingy with the sausages!
Claire chose the Hake with Smoked Mussels and Girolles Fricassee 
Chocolate & Praline Cheesecake with Toffee Cream
Sticky Toffee Pudding & Muscovado Ice Cream
Absolute heaven. 
Breakfast each morning had a slightly different set up. You could either order from the breakfast menu or get a cooked breakfast from the buffet. 
As big foodies, we chose both... #NoShame.
Eggs Royale with smoked salmon - ooooooooh yeah

Not much can beat a Full Scottish Breakfast!
They also have veggie options, fresh fruit, cheeses and cereals, so there's something for everyone

What I loved the most about the food on the menu is that it say precisely where the produce came from - all farmed in the Scotland. They take great pride in using Scottish produce and every dish was cooked to perfection.

The staff were all so kind, on-the-ball and took the time to explain what the menu consisted of as soon as we sat down. Their knowledge was so impressive and went a long way!

But hey! Don't just take my word for it, have a look at Laura from Liparazzi's post about her staycation at Ardoe House!
