Once home to the Marquess of Huntly, the old hall doesn't lack for period charm, with the restaurant featuring burnished oak panels and mullioned windows. The 20-acre estate boasts a spa and there's an atmospheric pub, but the Huntly Restaurant is the place to eat. It's a refined room with smartly dressed tables and a formal service style. The cooking is broadly modern British, with traditional starters such as oak-smoked salmon and salmon mousse, followed by roasted duck breast with caramel orange sauce and excellent dauphinoise potatoes. Bring things to a close with iced Belgian chocolate and tangerine parfait.
