The owners, Anne and Archie MacDonald, are particularly keen to welcome local families to The Orangery, with dining that doesn’t break the bank, with ingredients sourced from the incredible local larder available in Highland Perthshire. Featured on the menu will be venison from the local estates, Perthshire lamb and Arbroath Smokies.
Sunday lunch will be ideal for families who are looking for a day trip destination. There are so many beautiful walks to start the day, guests can work up an appetite before enjoying a slow roast rib of Scotch beef at The Orangery. The Sunday lunch menu will vary from week to week, although there will always be a traditional Sunday roast cooked to perfection in the Aga
Set on its own private estate just off the A9, The Old Manse of Blair is located between the major central belt cities of Glasgow, Edinburgh and Stirling and the Highland Capital Inverness, the start of the NC500 driving route.
A Chef’s Table experience is available for up to six guests for lunch or dinner, allowing diners to get up close to the cooking in the kitchen, with a seven course tasting meu and matched wines.
The Orangery is filled with natural daylight and in the warmer months guests can enjoy drinks on the outdoor terrace. The décor has been completed in a boutique contemporary style. There is a blend of bespoke furniture and soft furnishings, along with an extensive eclectic art collection including “Buttercup”, the Highland Cow, an original painting by renowned wildlife artist, Georgina McMaster.
The original greenhouse and walled garden on site will be used to grow fresh produce for The Orangery kitchen.
The Orangery will be open for lunch, afternoon tea and dinner, from Thursday to Sunday. During high season, from 1st May to 30th September, the restaurant will be open daily.
