If the landscape doesn’t take your breath away, the food will
Chef Tony Pierce and the kitchen team at Knockinaam Lodge have one objective in mind each day and that is to please the guest. Tony has been doing just that at Knockinaam Lodge for 28 years and during that time has trained many young chefs the traditional methods of great cooking.
Tony keeps it fresh with his own touches, including surprise courses
In 1995 the daily changing set menu was introduced by Tony to Knockinaam Lodge, as one of the first in Scotland to adopt the 5 course tasting menu concept. By the early noughties many more had taken up the trend.
Of course, when someone says “set menu” you may think this is a policy of the kitchen to manage cooking time efficiently or use up surplus ingredients and in either case, you may feel it’s the kitchen dictating to you what you must eat.
A Set Menu that isn’t set in stone…
This is not the intention of the tasting menu: the daily changing menu is a great showcase for the most stunning ingredients that are sourced locally and further afield. That said, at Knockinaam we want you to be looking forward to your dining experience so we are very keen to know your likes and dislikes. Your own meal can be adapted to ensure you don’t go missing out on a course just because your most feared ingredient is taking centre stage as the main course.
When you dine at Knockinaam we want you to feel that it is an event and an integral part of the experience here
Having enjoyed our stunning landscapes and coastlines we want you to sit down, relax and savour a whole spectrum of stylish Scottish based dishes, taking that memory away with you too.
We can also cater for special diets with advance notice, please inform our staff when booking.
