A very warm welcome to the restaurant of Cringletie House, situated just outside Edinburgh, nestled in 28 acres of woodland and gardens on the sloping hills of the Scottish Borders. Everything here is geared to providing the guests with a relaxed environment in which to enjoy the array of dishes available on the menus.
The kitchen team is headed by Executive Chef William Pike MBE. Willie has an outstanding and long career of chef in a variety of roles. He was involved in the menus for the Olympic Games in 2012; he has also cooked for royalty but most of all, the Scottish Chefs Conference is his "baby" and that Conference is an event on the Chefs' calendar that is sought after and therefore booked up in no time.
The management of Cringletie House and Restaurant are extremely happy to have Willie overlooking the kitchen and training our Chefs. Menus are seasonal with produce that is sourced as locally as possible. During the summer season, our 400 year old walled garden is something very special. Every morning chefs go in and see what is ready to be harvested for that evening's dinner! You can't get it any fresher than that!
Dining is a feast in the stunning dining room with its hand painted ceiling. If guests look up to this ceiling, they may be able to decipher the monograms that are there. This room is situated on the first floor, hence the views over the gardens and rolling countryside.
3 Course Dinner - from £29.95 per person; the menus vary with the season and wherever possible, produce is sourced locally, regionally and if need be nationally.
A light lunch menu is served Monday to Saturday and the traditional Sunday Lunch is served on Sundays from 12.00noon to 2.30pm.
Afternoon tea, the great British tradition, is served daily from 2.00pm to 5.00pm in the lounge or bar or if weather allows, outside on the lawns.
