An ideal resting spot whilst exploring the natural beauty of Perthshire, Angus and the Grampian Highlands, the Alyth Hotel features a charming bar that serves plenty of beloved Scottish dishes.
Originally a coaching inn, the Alyth Hotel has since simplified to a ‘quality over quantity’ mentality, housing twelve rooms and a humble bar; the Mersh Bar. Situated close to the scenic Diamond Jubilee Park and the expansive Alyth and Glenisla Golf Clubs, the Mersh Bar within the Alyth Hotel is great place to visit after a few round of golf due to its rich menu, most of which is homemade.
Settle into the bar area with a good drink and peruse the menu, which will reveal three courses of delicious food. Should guests simply wish to unwind with a few drinks they would still do well ordering a few of the starters, which make for exquisite bar snacks, if not wonderful precursors to a fantastic meal. Some of the exemplary appetisers include the enticing Haggis, Neep and Tattie Tower, drizzled with a whiksy cream sauce, and the scrumptious homemade Scotch egg, paired with Stornaway black pudding and a cracked pepper sauce.
Diners seeking a good, hearty meal will be delighted by any of the main course choices, yet some of the local favourites are the juicy roast belly of pork, served with wholegrain mustard mashed potatoes, creamed carrots and a black pudding and apple puree, the tantalising creamy four cheese fusilli pasta, partnered with a crisp salad and homemade garlic bread, and the succulent 10oz ribeye steak, complete with homemade chunky chips and onion rings, satueed mushrooms and the option to add fresh scampi.
Those with room for something sweet to round off the experience are highly advised to sample the divine homemade profiteroles, topped with toffee sauce, or the heavenly homemade chocolate brownie, covered in a white chocolate sauce. Whatever the choice, the experience is bound to be an incredibly delicious meal at the Alyth Hotel.
