Culloden Estate unveils new-look Mitre restaurant

The Culloden Estate and Spa has unveiled its recent £1 million refurbishment.

Various parts of the hotel have been revamped, with a new-look Mitre restaurant and refurbished bedrooms including the four original tower suites.

The spa will also be refurbished this month.

Adrian McNally, General Manager, said: “As well as the refurbishment of the bedrooms, we undertook a complete redesign of the Mitre restaurant.

"Our aim for the Mitre was to stay true to the heritage and architecture of the original hotel while introducing a contemporary luxury with rich upholsteries, rich mocha woods, flowing gold voile sheers and antiqued mirrors reflecting the natural light from a wall of floor to ceiling windows overlooking the estate gardens and Belfast Lough.

"We are delighted with the result and are confident that we have achieved the correct balance between traditional and contemporary."

Executive Head Chef Paul McKnight and Executive Sous Chef Brian Donaldson have created a new menu which takes on classical dishes with a contemporary twist.

"For example, we took a starter of prawn, ham and melon and created a prawn ice-cream, chargrilled watermelon and air dried ham," said Mr McNally.

"It is a very exciting menu and reinforces our dedication to using the very best of local produce.

“Taking our guests through this extraordinary culinary journey is a team of highly trained services professionals and coinciding with our investment we have developed new services styles with the input of our servers and training from our new Restaurant Manager Chris Kilpatrick.

“With this ongoing investment in our property and our staff, we feel we continue to offer the most attentive service with the best of Northern Ireland hospitality."
