About Glenskirlie Restaurant & Grill
Another great evening at glenskirlie
As usual everything was excellent and we had a lovely relaxed evening.
I have been to this establishment many times over the years, and keep returning as the food never disappoints. Not all restaurants can claim this - consistency is something most strive for but don't necessarily attain. Glenskirlie has in all the years I have been a customer maintained its standards of excellence from the warm welcome on arrival - to the best food anywhere served on Villeroy Boch crockery in pleasant surroundings (in our case last night - due to the heatwave we dined alfresco which was an added bonus). It is a pleasure to come here and I look forward to my next visit with the usual excitement.
Fine dining in Central Belt

Scottish ingredients cooked with flair
The chefs at Glenskirlie House Restaurant and Grill take great pride in using the best quality Scottish ingredients to create their innovative British menus. As well as an express lunch menu, they offer an a la carte and keenly priced, inventive market menu.
The a la carte starters are an appealing blend of tradition, adventure and new twists on classics. Examples might be the soy and sesame-cured cod with ginger sake jelly and avocado mayo or the chicken and rabbit terrine served with a pistachio purée and cherry Bakewell.
The main courses are split into classic crowd-pleasers and more complex options. The 1/2lb burger; steak pie or the haddock and hand-cut chips with a parsley and butter sauce fit the first category. Dishes like the chicken with peanut pesto, pickled raisin, charred broccoli and broccoli velouté fit the second.
There are also T-bone and fillet Scotch beef steaks, game and fish dishes like the sea bass with Cullen skink. Naturally, the menus change according to the seasons and the produce available.
