Kailyard Restaurant Doubletree by Hilton Dunblane Hydro

Quietly tucked on a small hill it is has a magical touch overlooking the small town of Dunblane, a Victorian style building offers breathtaking views set in the rolling hill.
We stayed here for 2 nights and had 2 lovely twin rooms compliments with Crabtree & Evelyn lotion, shampooing & conditioner in the bathroom, and nice selection of teas and coffee with cookies snack inside the bedrooms, this place was very quiet and restful, the rooms were spacious and very well kept.
The dinning room was spacious and comfortable surroundings create a sophisticated and romantic ambience, and very cool lighting, nice decor.
Like in other restaurant we have been eaten in the UK each diner gets their own delicious, warm bread and butter.
Although can order a la carte, we realize it’s really best to do a 4 course meal. Before the courses began, we were brought a tasty little amuse onion bread. Then came the sweet pea soup. This soup was infused with mint flavor it melts on your mouth, and didn’t taste like any pea soup and it was heavy and thick.
Next up is the main course was a pan seared chicken breast with  beans, mashed potato, carrots in gravy sauce. The chicken it was moist and carrots it was sweet and cooked perfectly, but came with a tasty silky mashed potato that made the dish very interesting.
For dessert, delicious panna cotta is a fabulous with a sweet slab of citrus of lemon zest and compliments with coffee or tea. The servings are the exact right size so that you won’t end up walking away overstuffed.
The next morning we have full Scottish breakfast in buffet style before going to Edinburgh city there is plenty of foods to choose from potato scone, eggy bread, plain or multi grain bread, bacon, beans, haggis, slice sausages, tomatoes, oats or trigo Scottish congee, yogurts, fresh sliced of fruits, ham and salami, prosciutto and more and had our table seat at the Wallace lounge.
Thou everything looks so delicious I only can go for a plate of my breakfast choice, just enough to get stuff!  But I really like it the haggis, its tasted like the reno liver spread from the Philippines yum!
I had a bowl of Scottish porridge is a dish made by boiling oats you can mix with honey or brown sugar it was delicious light and healthy too. The service was a bit slower but much better than the other restaurants we dined in other places. The staff was friendly and helpful this place is fit for any special occasion.
