Classical French cooking in historic, luxury country-house hotel

When tennis superstar Andy Murray decided to give something back to his home area (he grew up in nearby Dunblane) by attracting more visitors, his eyes alighted on this turreted country house hotel. Already rather swish, it's even more so now. It emerges from the trees at the end of a long, single-track drive through an estate partly owned by the Eden family (think Sir Anthony, the 1950s, prime minister). The Chez Roux restaurant, overseen by the legendary Albert, and run by award-winning executive head chef Darin Campbell, is in a glass-walled conservatory, with an open kitchen to one side, added in Andy's time. The menu, listing dishes in both French and English, changes frequently to offer, say, hand-dived Mull scallops with British rose veal sweetbreads and smoked red pepper purée to start, while a main might be Gigha (the most southerly Hebridean island) halibut, with new-season asparagus, grapes, garden mint gnocchi, white asparagus and verjus velouté; and ballotine of French rabbit with Scottish wild mushrooms, garden tarragon mousse, fondant potato, carrot purée and rabbit jus. In the spring, look for Perthshire strawberry soufflé and sorbet. That the hotel has a tennis court should be no surprise, but its purple and green surface, Wimbledon's house colours, might well be.
