My wife and I had the most amazing fine dining experience in the beautiful Samling restaurant. On a par or perhaps even marginally better than a trip earlier this year to the two michelin star Andrew Fairlie at Gleneagles. We went for the wine pairings...More
We had a Sunday lunch at the Samling. The food, service and views were all incredible. I can’t recommend it enough. From the moment you arrive you are welcomed in a genuine and unfussy way. The staff are attentive but don’t rush you and the...More

I sent an emailed request for a lunch reservation (as a non guest), and received confirmation promptly. I did this well in advance - last minute and I do not get along well...
