Highly rated by 5pm customers
One of 5pm’s most highly rated restaurants, Two Fat Ladies at the Buttery is well known for its unique oak panelling, stained glass and wonderful mahogany and marble bar.

Today’s Big Deal is for eight people to dine in either The Snug or the Chef’s Table, the two private dining rooms in Two Fat Ladies at the Buttery.
The Chef’s Table has a ringside view of all the action in the kitchen but, shielded by a window, diners are protected from the heat and noise of the kitchen team working at full throttle.
After being shown to their room, each guest will enjoy a glass of Prosecco with canapés followed by a three course set menu. Included in the deal are four bottles of house red or white to share plus coffee and petits fours to finish.
Individual dishes may vary depending on the best produce available from suppliers on the day but typical starters at your meal might include Cullen skink; a mussel and chorizo risotto or flash-fried West Coast scallops served with spiced dahl and lime coriander sour cream.
The selection of main courses might features dishes like mignons of Scotch beef with a garlic cream and chive mash, red wine and beetroot jus or the whole lemon sole which is accompanied by Indian spiced butter and toasted almonds.
Options such as the Two Fats’ cheesecake; the ever popular Buttery crème brûlée or a selection of pasteurised and unpasteurised cheese, chutney and Arran oatcakes are likely to be offered for dessert.
Coffee or tea with petit fours will crown the private dining experience.
