Fonab Castle a Scottish baronial castle, once the home of the Sandeman port and sherry dynasty. Today a 5-star hotel overlooking Loch Faskally offering both formal and informal dining. Opened in 2013 at ‘no expense-spared’ by the Clark family, who are dedicated to make it one of Scotland's top hotels.
The Sandemans’ Restaurant and lounge provide a wide choice of quality produce cooked to the highest standard. The Scottish country house tradition of fine food and great wine is the very much the focus of the informal restaurants.
The Sandemans’ Restaurants menu starts with a choice of Nibbles and Breads to a range of Scottish Starters, Salads, a good choice of Main Courses starting at £11.50, also Grills, Sauces, Burgers, Sandwiches and Snacks (12noon to 5pm), a fabulous choice of Deserts, and Dessert Wines and Ports. They also will try and meet any dietary requirements.
The Fonab Castle's aim is to become famous for their superb range of wines and champagnes, so they have taken great care in choosing a wine merchant who would look after the whole process from source to their cellar.
Corney and Barrow has a pedigree of one of the longest established wine Merchants in the UK. (Founded by a group of prominent Ayrshire merchants and landowners in 1766, Whighams of Ayr. In 1994 Whighams merged with Corney and Barrows Scottish operation. The 1766 built cellars are still in use today). Whether in the drawing room enjoying a glass or two as an aperitif before going to one of the restaurants, you will soon appreciate the great quality throughout the hotel’s great 187 Corney and Barrow chosen wine list, which is also rich in clarets and burgundies.
