Dining at the Sunninghill


At the Sunninghill we have an extensive menu with options to suit all tastes. We have successfully been accredited by EatScotland every year since VisitScotland began the assessment program.

The Sunninghill is a favourite with locals, visitors and residents who all come to sample our excellent freshly prepared meals. Our chefs try to source fresh, local and seasonal produce wherever possible for use in the menu and their specials which change daily. Our reputation for good food means it is advisable to book for weekends to avoid disappointment as we are often fully booked on Saturday evenings.

Our wine list boasts a fine selection of wines from around the world, or our real ales on offer can equally compliment your meals. The large selection of over 100 malt whiskies can offer the perfect finish to your dining experience.

We have several set/function menus all of which can be adapted to meet your needs, or we can advise and work with you to create a menu specifically for your party. Our team of chefs are more than willing to try and adapt any dishes to meet any dietary requirements that you or your party may have.
