Loch Kinord Hotel

Ballater Road, Dinnet, BALLATER, AB34 5JY

1 rosettes

Built in granite in Victorian times, Loch Kinord has homely lounges with real fires, a small bar and a dining room done out with tartan wallpaper and plush red and gold carpets. There's a classical leaning to the kitchen's output and a good showing of regional produce to inject a sense of place. Start on game terrine with red onion marmalade and toasted brioche, followed by rack of lamb with mustard and herb crust, the meat perfectly pink and tender, served with braised red cabbage and black pudding mash. Chocolate fondant oozes in all the right places and comes with a scoop of intensely flavoured vanilla ice cream.
