The launch of The Scullery restaurant

We are very excited to unveil the newest addition to our family, The Scullery, after an investment of £60,000+ in the formerly named, Waterside Restaurant. The Scullery encompasses all the elements that were loved by guests previously, including the waterside views, the delicious food and the fantastic service, and it brings to the table fresh décor, inspired by the natural Scottish surroundings. The major makeover enhances the guest experience with a bold colour palate, luxurious booth seating, quirky river tables and a statement wine cellar.

Thistle Wallpaper in the Scullery

Design highlights include unique thistle wallpaper by Timerous Beasty, a wine cellar designed and crafted by the in-house blacksmith along with Lamin8 fabricators, industrial style lighting and River Tables in Elm wood with a blue epoxy resin running through the middle of them to reflect the rugged Scottish riverscape. Each table is totally unique; formed with natural elm wood creating natural living edges. The statement piece is the large 5 metre Feasting River Table, which guests can hire out for gatherings and celebrations. The booth seating is constructed with high-end Italian leather, made from naturally cured cow-hide built by Suite Illusions.

The resort is owned by The Forbes Family, who in 2020 celebrated 25 years in business.  The family are renowned for their investment within the local area, as well as their exceptionally high-quality designs and strong attention to detail.

The name, ‘The Scullery’, is underpinned by Scottish influence, traditionally meaning a room at the back of a kitchen for prepping food and cleaning utensils. Mike Forbes recalls his Grandmother, Elizabeth, who lived at Slainspark which was a dairy farm in Inverbervie, used to have a Scullery out the back of her kitchen, where she would get fresh milk delivered daily from the dairy, just a few metres away. Mike remembers skimming the cream off the top of the cauldrons of fresh milk.

Head Chef, Scott Davidson, who learned his craft at Gleneagles, has created an enticing new menu. Scott says, ‘I’m proud to be using the finest Scottish ingredients tied in with our own produce, including homegrown pork, peas and strawberries, all farmed within a stone’s throw of the resort.’

Wee Tea Room

The food is good value and excellent quality inspired by the Scottish heritage and matching the overall restaurant look.

Another new addition to the resort is The Wee Tea Room, a neighbouring space to The Scullery, that offers a relaxed area for guests to enjoy a coffee and a cake, with a natural backdrop of greenery to create an outside in feel as well as a stone floor, with flagstones sourced from local, award-winning Denfind Stone, in Monikie.  The area brings together all the dining spaces including The Cairn O’Mount Bar, The Scullery and the outdoor veranda.

This development is part of a continual investment plan that looking to the future will see additional luxury lodges being built, alongside new hot tubs being installed in current lodges. We are hoping locals will be charmed by the newest quirky instalment at the resort.
