Events for Playfair’s Army

It’s 2017 and we’ve hit the ground running here at the Ardgowan Hotel and Playfair’s Restaurant!

We’ve got a lot happening here over the next few months – special events in the restaurant, redecoration in the hotel – and we’re so excited to be back open after a long Christmas/New Year break!

First on our list is Burns Night! Head Chef Duncan has put together a fantastic menu, perfect for celebrating Scotland’s national poet, with traditional Scottish dishes like Cullen Skink and Haggis Neeps and Tatties. This special menu is £15.95 for 3 courses, and will be running alongside the a la carte menu that evening (just in case you’d like a steak instead!). And if you miss out on Burns Night, don’t worry – we have haggis neeps and tatties on our a la carte menu, so you can celebrate any time!

Next up we have a Wine Tasting and Canapé evening planned in Playfair’s on Thursday the 2nd of February from 6:00pm to 8:30pm. Head Chef Duncan has teamed up with Gordon Davidson from Corney and Barrow to create 6 delicious canapés paired with carefully selected wines, which Gordon will talk everyone through that evening! Tickets are £20 per person, and they’re limited! We’ve already sold quite a few – book your table for this event before it’s too late!

Also in Playfair’s, we’ve got Valentine’s Day just around the corner. Looking for the perfect way to celebrate with the one you love? Look at the amazing menu our chefs will be serving and book your romantic table in Playfair’s today! (Don’t worry – they’ll be serving this menu until the 19th of February!)

The Ardgowan Hotel has also seen lots of changes over the break, and even more are on the radar! Rooms have been painted a lovely soft taupe colour, new grey headboards and Hypnos beds have been delivered for the Classic Standard rooms, feather pillows and duvets are making their way into the Classic Standard and Deluxe Rooms, and they’ll be upgrading to a modern key card system soon! Keep your eyes on their blog posts, as they’ll be posting updates as the rooms are ready.

As you can tell, we’re really excited about everything happening in our little corner of St Andrews. Why not pop in for a meal in Playfair’s or book your next stay in St Andrews at the Ardgowan Hotel?
