Gleneagles Townhouse, a lively member’s club, wellness space, all day restaurant and 33-room hotel, is the place to gather and be glorious this festive season. Guests will be wowed by the fairytale woodland-themed decorations inspired by Scottish folklore and flavourful, seasonal menus served in the all-day dining restaurant, The Spence. Furthermore, there is plenty in store for Townhouse members in December, including a lavish Hogmanay house party to welcome 2024.

Festive Feasts at The Spence

The beating heart of The Townhouse, The Spence, has just launched its festive menu, perfect for dining with friends and family gatherings. Head Chef, Jonny Wright, uses exceptional produce from across Scotland to create dishes that evolve with the seasons. The festive menu incorporates comforting flavours that are the essence of Christmas. Show-stopping dishes include wild game terrine with walnut jam and winter truffle or the refreshing heritage beetroot with William’s pear and pickled mustard seeds to start, followed by venison loin, potato puree and red cabbage or a classic roast chicken with pork and apricot stuffing and the classic trimmings for mains. For those with a sweet tooth, the dessert menu features an Ecclefechan tart served with clotted cream and a cherry, cranberry and pistachio parfait with a mulled wine sauce.

To drink, there are also festive cocktails to go alongside, including a Townhouse Bellini, blending orange blossom with vanilla, blood orange and Cremant D’Alsace, or a Rusty Nail, made up of Johnnie Walker Black Label, X by Glenmorangie, Drambuie, Sweetdram Escubac and orange bitters, as well as a classic Mulled Wine.

This menu launched this week (14 November), and will be available until 26 December, served from 12pm-10pm alongside the standard a-la-carte menu.
Tables can be booked HERE.

Christmas Eve & Day at The Spence

Due to popular demand, The Spence will once again open its doors for a festive feast on Christmas Day. The day will start with delicious snacks for the table, including Oscietra caviar blinis; followed by a choice menu featuring a chicken and truffle terrine served with hazelnut and toasted brioche, and west coast dressed crab with apple and coriander to start; for mains, options include crowd pleasers such as beef wellington, served with smoked mashed potatoes and spinach, classic turkey accompanied by sage and pork stuffing and pigs in blankets, and a roasted cauliflower served with tahini and pomegranate; there is a choice of four festive favourites to finish like Christmas pudding and Bailey’s sauce or winter berry trifle.
