Ragdale Dining

Our approach to spa dining is all about balance, not just nutritionally, but also to embrace taste, texture and a little bit of luxury. We do not believe that any one ingredient is bad for you and therefore, by eating what you enjoy, you are more likely to adhere to a healthy lifestyle and get both pleasure and benefit from what you eat. 

We are happy to cater for special diets, but would ask you to contact us if you have any concerns about your own specific dietary requirements.



A continental style breakfast is served at the leisurely time of 8.00 to 8.30am in the comfort of your room - a rare and luxurious treat.

A comprehensive menu of healthy and energising dishes provides choice and variety in preparation for whatever may be planned for the day ahead.

You may pre-select your menu the day before meaning there are no difficult decisions to be made in the morning about what to have for breakfast, one of the most common reasons for skipping this very important meal.

If you prefer an earlier start we can deliver breakfast to rooms at 7.30am.  Alternatively, a later breakfast option is served in the Verandah Bar between 9.00 and 9.30am.

See here for a sample Breakfast menu.

Atholl Brose - Ragdale's famous breakfast!



Our Dining Room offers a three course lunch including a sumptuous hot and cold buffet full of interesting and wonderful dishes that provide a stunning visual impact and a real feast for the eyes. Nourishing and tasty with fresh, zingy and colourful salad combinations alongside a variety of meat, fish and vegetarian dishes, ensure your palate is catered for.

You are free to graze the buffet for tempting and flavoursome dishes and little treats of luxury items that will pamper and satisfy food cravings.

Lunch is the ideal opportunity to re-fuel at a leisurely pace, enjoy light and wholesome dishes and continue the feel-good factor later into the day.

Whether you are seeking classic or contemporary dining, our dinner menu provides the ultimate spa dining experience. Fresh ingredients, professional chefs and a world of culinary influences all combine to deliver three courses of gastronomic and luxurious delight.

Smaller portions and optional lighter dishes help to control calorie intake and also allow for a treat or two - in moderation.

Freshly baked bread, a glass of wine or the Ragdale "Comfort Pudding" mean that starvation or abstinence are not on the menu, leaving you content and calm whilst you wind down towards the end of your day and enjoy a relaxed and peaceful night's sleep.
