While there’s much to be said for exploring the culinary delights of Dunblane and its surroundings, you simply will not find a more indulgent dining experience than that of our own "The Kailyard by Nick Nairn" restaurant. Food lovers from all over the UK flock to the DoubleTree by Hilton Dunblane to sample the gastronomic masterpieces designed by our resident celebrity chef, Nick Nairn.
One of the most famous and highly-celebrated chefs ever to come out of Scotland, Nick is also one of the youngest ever recipients of the coveted Michelin Star award. Along with a passion for the freshest ingredients, Nick believes in the importance of using simple, locally-sourced produce of the highest quality in order to produce signature dishes of truly outstanding prowess. Assisted by the incredibly talented Executive Chef Steven Campbell, this unique pairing of gastronomic greatness has created an exciting yet comprehensively simple menu to give diners a truly tantalising taste of the real Scotland as well as a menu for vegetarians and a special menu for children.
Our menus change daily in order to reflect the freshest and most decadent produce available at the time, though many of our signature specials can be sampled the whole year round.
FRESH SCOTTISH SALMON - Loch Duart salmon with watercress & apple salad and brown bread.
FINEST SCRABSTER HALIBUT - Pan-fried Scrabster halibut, herb mash, wilted spinach & caviar butter sauce.
NICK'S BERRY TRIFLE - Devour homemade blackcurrant jelly, vanilla custard, crème Chantilly and toasted almonds.
