Our Botanist restaurant is perfect for a casual weekend lunch or dinner on any evening. Our head chef, Phil Yates, changes the menu every week using the best in-season produce available from our local suppliers. We offer both classic favourites and more creative dishes and our traditional Sunday lunch roast. If you are celebrating a birthday, an engagement, a wedding anniversary or a family occasion we have a number of private dining rooms and promise to make the event special for you. On sunny days, you can dine on our terrace overlooking the garden.

A great breakfast and an all-day menu

Some say breakfast is the most important meal of the day and we would not disagree. Before you leave us, complete your stay at Keavil House by enjoying a delicious breakfast of healthy and traditional Scottish dishes. Our breakfast menu offers a wide selection and includes a number of dishes which are cooked to order in the kitchen. Our all-day menu changes every season and always offers a carefully chosen selection of classic dishes in addition to sandwiches, burgers, salads and the very best 28 day aged steaks. We offer everything from the best gourmet burgers to classic dishes and our weekend lunch menu always offers a traditional roast.
