A popular venue for weddings, this grand country pile — a French Renaissance-style chateau — has the feel of a place for special occasions rather than somewhere you might pop in for coffee and cake. Set in acres of lush, rolling countryside just outside Biggar, at the end of a long, winding, tree-lined drive, it has a genteel, old-fashioned ambience of another era. The food and service are styled to match the surroundings. Two dining rooms – the Bistro and Jade restaurants – share the same menu, an amalgam of Scottish and international dishes with the occasional flourish. Starters of crayfish cocktail and seared roe deer are followed by mains including beer-battered haddock, steak pie and a duo of spring lamb, plus burgers and steaks from the chargrill. There's also a popular afternoon tea menu to enjoy, perhaps with a bottle of fizz while sitting back and enjoying the sweeping views across the Clyde Valley.
