Passionate About Scottish Food
We love food and are committed to offering every one of your guests a dining experience they will cherish with every morsel. Our love of food is exactly why we only use fresh, seasonal ingredients from Inverness and the surrounding area. The Highlands of Scotland has a lot to offer in the way of great produce and we are delighted to have this on our doorstep.
Fine Wines & Spirits
Our independent Master of Wines has personally selected all of the vintages we serve to complement our menus, ensuring you receive only the best flavour match. If wine isn’t your thing, you’ll be pleased to know we have a full range of whiskies, spirits and beers to complete your meal.
We offer two restaurants at our hotel:
The Inglis Restaurant is perfect for family functions as it offers a fixed price table d’hote menu, lovingly prepared by our talented and dedicated team of chefs. We defy the children’s menu norm, offering a selection of excellent dining options that will introduce your child to new and exciting flavours.
The Conservatory Restaurant offers a magnificent view of our gardens, allowing diners to enjoy a leisurely meal in relaxed surroundings. Whether dining with a client or a loved one, The Conservatory offers an elegant setting with exceptional menu options.
We also have seven events venues that can be easily adapted to suit your requirements. Whether you want a grand awards dinner or an intimate catch up with old friends, we’ll have the space for you. See what some of our previous guests have had to say about dining events at Kingsmills:
“Excellent night last night, service and food were spot on. The best meal they’ve had on tour so far according to their Michelin starred chef!” [A. Asher]
“I can’t thank you all enough for your generosity last night – everything was just perfect. Your staff were utterly charming and brilliant, the canapés were delicious and everyone I spoke to said how impressed they were.” [Nicky Marr, Writer & Broadcaster]
Taste Our Best
“The fillet of beef on Hogmanay was a real triumph, and to serve so many at the same time, all cooked to perfection was massively impressive” [Mr and Mrs W Marsh]
Scotland is lucky enough to boast a wealth of excellent fresh produce which is why we aim to use only seasonal ingredients where possible. Our desire to create quality dishes has been recognised by Visit Scotland as we are now “Taste Our Best” accredited.
