An Aberdeenshire hotel has launched a new casual dining food concept in its award-winning bar.
Meldrum House Country Hotel has launched 1236 in the venue’s Cave Bar.
A new chapter in the history of the hotel, the Cave Bar, now called 1236, is the oldest part of the 800-year old building.
Named after the year Meldrum House was built, diners will be able to enjoy the space for breakfast, lunch and dinner.
On the breakfast and brunch menu customers can expect to see porridge, a full Scottish breakfast, burger sliders, sandwiches and salads, while on the evening menu a variety of small plates including haggis bon bons, French onion soup, gin battered King prawns and Glen Garioch whisky smoked salmon will be available.
As well as small plates, diners can also enjoy big plates like pies, pulled pork, burgers, steak and fish dishes. Desserts such as an indulgent millionaire’s chocolate brownie will be on offer too.
The Cave Bar is home to more than 120 whiskies and will also sport a new drinks menu with a selection of cocktails. Some favourites include a French martini, espresso martini, jam pot daiquiri and a twister.
1236 will provide the perfect place for an informal lunch or dinner for guests who want an alternative experience to the 2 red rosette dining room.
In warmer weather, the doors out to the terrace area will also be opened so guests can enjoy a bite to eat and drink in the sun.
