Brockies Lodge, Kiltarlity
Exciting things are happening at Brockie’s Lodge! New management and a new head chef are shaking things up at this Kiltarlity fixture.
The current menu provides traditional options such as a Roast of the Day with potatoes, vegetables, gravy and a whopping Yorkshire pudding! The starter that caught my eye was a Stornoway black pudding and bacon salad and it tasted as good as it looked. A sweet honey mustard dressing on the salad made the dish light and complimented the earthy flavour of the black pudding.
The deserts are a real treat too, with a summer fruit Eton Mess and a Chocolate Brownie with hot fudge sauce that is to die for!
Some of the other options include Smoked Haddock and Salmon Fishcakes, a particularly good Hunters Chicken and Beef Lasagna. There are vegetarian options such as Sweet Potato, Chickpea and Spinach Curry and they are happy to accommodate Gluten Free diets, which is a great service for any restaurant these days.
Put all the good food along side a cosy atmosphere, generous seating, a great location and lovely wait staff and you will definitely have a wonderful experience dining here. They also offer room for functions for up to 160 people and have a large outdoor seating area for the good weather.
A few highlights from the new menu include Arbroath Smokies with Rumbledethumps, a Beef, Mushroom and Guiness Pie and a starter of Moules Mariniere. They have also added a Malt Whisky list and extended their already generous wine list.
In my opinion, Brockie’s Lodge is worth a visit any day of the week!
