My wife and I visited Achray House again after receiving a special offer email that mentioned there was a Seafood Taster Menu available and we booked our room instantly as we had been before and love the place.
My review is a few months late as I lost a copy of the menu and the review wouldn't be the same without it.
Salmon - kiln smoked over peat, pink ginger jelly, wasabi air
Squat Lobster - light Thai broth, rice noodles
Mackrel - mini burger, braised orange, rhubarb compote
Scallop - beetroot foam, Talisker syrup
Hake - razor clam & chorizo, samphire, fennel cream
Seaweed - seaweed pannacotta, strawberries
Why anyone would book such a meal and then inform the hotel that they have a fish allergy is beyond me, perhaps a warning on a burning log should read hot don't touch.
The meal was a delight and is a reflection of the great effort that the owners put into making this a brilliant Country House Hotel. They have an excellent attitude in that they put highest standards at the top of wish list.
I was suprised one evening that an unbooked party was turned away from the restaurant and when I queried this the response was that, there wasn't adequate staff that evening to maintain the high levels that are expected of them and they prefer to maintain standards of food and service rather than simply take every booking that was available to them. Great attitude
Quality not quantity, lovely place
We will visit again
