About The Spiritualist
Great relaxed Sunday venue
Last minute decision to go out for lunch on the bank holiday Sunday resulted in a quick scan of 5pm and we decided to try somewhere new for us. We spent just under 4 hours in The Spiritualist as it was so relaxed. The staff were attentive (but not too much), atmosphere was relaxed, food was superb and the cocktails were lush. Husbands new favourite place for an old fashioned.
One of my favourite places
Fabulous starters and delicious main course too - well done chef!
Stylish restaurant bar in notable setting
Opened in the spring of 2016, The Spiritualist is a stylish restaurant and bar in the building that once housed Stirling’s Library. Inspired by the Art Deco movement and hung with vintage portraits, the decor is as sleek as it is contemporary. A stunning drinks list features Scottish craft beers; a globe-trotting selection of spirits; a well balanced wine list and many innovative and attractively presented cocktails. A unique Chef’s Table in the kitchen is a real talking point.
Top quality Scottish ingredients
Open for breakfast, lunch and dinner, The Spiritualist’s menus range from a bowl of apple pie porridge through gourmet lunchtime baguettes to exquisite dinners. Prime Scottish ingredients such as Simon Howie beef, Shetland mussels and lobster are all prominent.
Some dishes like, the beef Wellington starter are traditional, British classics. Others, like the lobster burger with mango chutney or the pork fillet marinated in mustard and served with pan-fried cauliflower are more exotic. The Sunday roasts and keenly priced pre-theatre menus are added attractions.
