The Bistro

The Bistro is open in the evening (advance reservations only) and Dinner is served from 6pm with last orders at approx. 7.30pm.   The Bistro is generally closed on Sundays and Mondays and can be closed on other evenings, particularly in low season and therefore we always advise telephoning to check availability.  Please note due to lack of demand we do not serve lunch, morning coffee or afternoon tea.

Guests are shown into the Drawing Room where they can relax with a pre-dinner drink.  Dinner is served in the Bar/Bistro which has a relaxed and cosy atmosphere.  
Dining at Dalrachney augments the Highland experience where our professional staff have acquired an excellent reputation for service and great food using the best of fresh local produce - see Sample Menu below (available until end August 2018 only).
