The Drawing Room bar and lounge

The Drawing Room Bar and Lounge features many original paintings by Scottish artists, as well as a fascinating array of artefacts collected by the Spence family over the years, including a display of 140 cheese dishes - collected from all corners of the globe.

The focal point of this splendid drawing room is the baby grand piano which is festooned with a pictorial record of some of the many VIPs and celebrities who have visited and stayed in our hotel since it opened in 1993.


With a real log fire burning invitingly, our guests and visitors find the Drawing Room an ultra-relaxing retreat - for morning coffee, afternoon tea or for joining friends and colleagues for drinks before and after lunch or dinner. View sample menu.  Please be advised that due to popularity bookings are required for Afternoon Tea.
