Lively modern Scottish cooking at Andy's place

Open all year
Private dining
Wines by the glass

Cromlix has had a lively history. It was built to more or less its present specifications in 1874, and promptly burned to nothing four years later. Little daunted, its architectural mirror-image rose again, and it's been a hotel since the 1980s. In 2013, the year he first won Wimbledon, Andy Murray, who grew up three miles away in Dunblane, acquired it, and the place has benefited from a sensational modern makeover. A contemporary dining room in light primary colours has views of the gardens or of the kitchen, depending on your priorities, and is supplied with lively modern cooking by Darin Campbell, under the aegis of Albert Roux. First up might be a brace of seared Mull scallops with rose veal sweetbreads, smoked red pepper purée and aubergine caviar, an attractively balanced array of flavours, before main course brings on Gartmorn duck, the breast cooked pink, the leg meat stuffed into hispi cabbage, alongside a chicory tartlet and baby turnips in raspberry vinegar jus, or perhaps seared stone bass with artichoke and a crab and lemon thyme croquette. Finish with Perthshire strawberry soufflé with matching ice cream, or with formidably rich Valrhona chocolate millionaire tart and Baileys ice cream.
