Dining and gastronomy is a special chapter for Norton House which offers many possibilities to wine & dine. Guests can choose from private dining in specially designed Ushers Restaurant with a la carte menu or head to the Brasserie and enjoy traditional Scottish dishes with a touch of uniqueness. During my visit, we have tried chicken Caesar salad and celery-apple soup as starter, chicken breast with mash potatoes and salmon with lentil dip as main course, pear perfection and chocolate cake as dessert. Everything was beyond amazing and I must say that it definitely deserve stars award rating which you can see on the wall prior to entering the Brasserie. 3-course menu is served in Brasserie and guests can choose from wide selection of wines or cocktails to accompany their meals. Afternoon tea, deserts and snack can be served in comfortable lounge with fireplace which is also perfect destination for quite private working time.
