Featured Auchterarder Restaurants
1. Andrew Fairlie, Gleneagles Hotel French restaurant in Auchterarder
“You are enveloped in a cocoon of luxurious decadence on arrival at this intimate room, which exudes the glamour of a previous era” – a “darkly lit, quiet space which is very romantic” (but to some tastes a tad “gloomy”). On most accounts, “the tasting menu is an ultimate culinary experience that shouldn’t be missed, with each course more sublime than the last; and with superb wine pairings (which allows the sommelier to present a mini course in viniculture)”. Service is generally found to be “engaged and enthused” and “very friendly”. Unsurprisingly some reporters challenge the extent to which it’s good value, or judge the performance to be good rather than great, but for most visitors “despite the incredible expense, for a truly memorable evening I can’t think of a better place to splash out”. STOP PRESS. Sad news in early November 2018 – Andrew Fairlie is to step down as he is suffering from terminal cancer. He will hand over to head chef Stevie McLaughlin, general manager Dale Dewsbury and his business partner Gregor Mathieson on February 1.
2. Jon & Fernanda's British, Modern restaurant in Auchterarder 34 High Street - PH3
“Small, family-run restaurant” where the “predominantly British menu is superb” and there’s an appealing “wine list from all over the world”. “It punches above its weight” and some fans are completely wowed: “far better than its neighbour, Gleneagles!” (where the owners honed their craft).
3. Strathearn Restaurant French restaurant in Auchterarder
Gleneagles ‘other’ restaurant is less well-known than Andrew Fairlie but highly rated nevertheless as “one of the very best ‘grand’ dining rooms in Britain”, following a traditional ‘silver service’ format. It will emerge in spring 2019 after a major refurbishment.
