Douneside Dining Club presents an unforgettable evening for those who enjoy the finest food and wine.

Our 3 AA Rosette Head Chef, David Butters (Scotland's Executive Hotel Chef of the Year, Scottish Hotel Awards), will create a special 6-course tasting menu for these evenings, showcasing a variety of expertly crafted dishes that have been created exclusively for the event. Our Sommelier will introduce each dish, explaining the provenance of its ingredients, followed by a brief history on his choice of accompanying wines, explaining why each vintage perfectly complements the dish being served.

Along with our Head Chef’s tasting menu and the selection of fine wines, each evening is further highlighted by wonderful entertainment - from accomplished musicians, to renowned guest speakers or an evening hosted by an award winning visiting winemaker. The entertainment varies at each event - please contact us for details.

Above all, the Douneside Dining Club presents an opportunity to meet like-minded guests in a relaxed and picturesque setting, and to indulge in a true foodie experience.
