Yes they do but they change so best to go on line and update will be there. They had a bruschetta with feta and that was lovely as we were there the other day. Sorry I'm not much help
Stayed at hotel for friends birthday weekend. Arrived to find a very friendly young lady waiting to greet us. She showed us to our lovely peaceful rooms told us a bit about the hotel and wished us a pleasant stay. The dining area looks over Loch Lockie with views to take your breath away. Food was amazing and at a very reasonable price. I have nothing but praise for this lovely hotel and the staff are a credit. We will be back soon I hope
