Knockinaam Lodge has a noted reputation for Chef Tony Pierce’s tremendous food that is served in the romantic, candlelit restaurant. The kitchen makes as much as possible in-house, from freshly baked bread each day to the wonderful raspberry jam and marmalade at breakfast to the tasty petit fours at the end of dinner.
The restaurant offers a five course tasting style menu that changes regularly. Here is a typical example:
- Grilled fillet of salted cod with a red pepper emulsion and green olive tapenade.
- Cauliflower and flat parsley soup with white truffle oil.
- Roast breast of free range chicken with wild garlic, parsnip puree, charred tenderstem broccoli and a Madeira sauce.
- Warm pear and almond tart with praline creme Chantilly and Amaretto sabayon.
- Coffee and petit fours.
The extensive wine cellar has won several awards while the whisky list features more than 120 malts.
