About The Spiritualist
Brilliant place, delicious food, great service and gorgeous surroundings. Really, what's not to love about this place? Even though it was mid week still enough people visiting for the same reason we were there, to eat good food in lush
First time at the Spiritualist
We went for Sunday Lunch. An absolutely lovely meal, and great value.
A particular mention for the service. The staff struck just the right note between friendly cheerful service, and being attentive without being in your face.
The restaurant itself is nicely done. Very tasteful.
Although it was our first visit, it won't be the last! All in all a very pleasant afternoon.
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.
