Your two course dinner will be served in the stylish Opus One Restaurant which, along with two AA Rosettes, has won the coveted Urban Restaurant of the Year Award at the Scottish Restaurant Awards.
The menus change regularly but typical dishes might be starters such as wood pigeon with pickled pear, Savoy cabbage and walnut or the goats cheese mousse with textures of beetroot and a Parmesan tuille.
Popular main courses include the Guinness-braised beef shin with herb dumpling, root vegetables and pommes purée or the trio of pork belly, loin and cheek with carrot, pearl barley and salsify.
The New County Hotel has won armfuls of awards but it also fires up the enthusiasm of those who are clever enough to stay there. This is what one happy, recent guest had to say on TripAdvisor:
‘Very pleasant stay – Opus Restaurant was very good. Our room was nice and spacious – light and bright. The beds were comfortable. The manager Simon was attentive and very helpful. We had dinner at the Opus restaurant on the first night – and we were pleasantly surprised by the high quality. We did not expect ‘fine dining’ but that is what we got. It was the kind of menu you read and think “oh I’m not quite sure about that” – but when on the plate the flavours and presentation were excellent. The hotel is in a great position – on the edge of the city centre – so really easy to walk out to go shopping and for other restaurants (of which there are plenty) – and friendly pubs. We had a lovely weekend – and wouldn’t hesitate to return to do it again.’
