This was my first visit to Turnberry and to Corney & Barrow's annual wine tasting held at the hotel.
In fact my wine merchant has been trying to persuade me to go for several years and I now wish I had said 'Yes' years ago.
It is an extravagent luxury but well worth it for the sense of decadence, stepping back in time, faultess service and amazing wine list presented to me on an iPad!
The dining experience is particularly memorable as the restuarant is huge and you feel like you are on an Edwardian ocean-going liner. The menu is equally classicly-inspired, but faultlessly executed.
My only minor gripe was the price of a sandwich (£10.50 I think, not particularly good bread and it really was only a sandwich) and the supplement for the rack of lamb at dinner. Quoted as £7 but for two people, this turned out to be £7 per person. I clearly didn't read the small print.
Nevertheless, we had such an enjoyable time, my wife has already invited friends for our next visit to Turnberry. And 'Yes', I am planning on making the Corney & Barrow annual wine tasting... an annual wine-tasting from now on!
