Falls of Feugh Restaurant & Tearoom

Every once in a while, you stumble into a restaurant that simply deserves to be shouted about. And one of them is the Falls of Feugh Restaurant & Tearoom, a beautiful gem tucked away in the little town of Banchory. It’s located next to the River Dee where you can also see salmon jumping at the right season.

It’s great in the summer because we would go for a long walk then head to the restaurant for some lunch. And in the winter, it’s great for taking lots of photos of the snow!

Their menu is fantastic. And what’s special is that they change their menu EVERYDAY. So every single time you head to the restaurant, you’ll have a completely different experience. They have some things that don’t change, like their jacket potatoes and sandwiches. And I always order the same thing (their Cajun Chicken Jacket Potato), so I can’t really write about their other foods. It’s a bad habit – once I find a dish I absolutely love in a restaurant, I hardly (or never) venture out to try anything else.

It’s a must try. And always add some salt and pepper and LOTS of butter. De. Li. Cious. And I don’t know what they put in their salad dressing but it is oh-so-good.

I tried some of their butternut squash soup once, which was really good too. But because the menu changes daily, I’ve never been able to try it again. I suppose that’s the down side of a changing menu. Service is normally quite good. The interior is very quaint and Britishly decorated, which I like. I always think a restaurant’s decoration should reflect the type of food they serve. They also have tables on a little balcony outside that overlooks the river, which is simply splendid in the summer! That said, summers here are not great so you might still find it too cold to sit outside.

I stole the next photo from their website because I don’t have a photo of the restaurant itself (I hope they don’t mind!).

Gorgeous ain’t it?

Ok it looks small from the front, but it extends quite far back. Check out their website for a virtual tour!

    this place looks so lovely and welcoming. the best thing about menus that change daily is that you know the food will be fresh. then again like you said, it’s hard to order what you want again cause it may not be there the next time you visit. like i always, say, “you win some, you lose some”. i’m glad you enjoyed your food there. it seems like quite a romantic place also to be able to sit on their balcony and watch the fish jumping. thanks for sharing dear.

    Quaint and lovely place! I really enjoy going to tearooms although they are few and far in between. Great place to spend a leisurely afternoon.

    That sounds like a great place to go to get food. Yummy descriptions! Such a quaint looking place. :)

    About reading, I really like the book Shopaholic (it’s a really cute and funny chick lit). I also like reading Nicholas Sparks, Jodi Piccoult, and much more. Historical fiction books that I have read and loved include books by Gail Tsukiyama and Memoirs of a Geisha. You probably notice a trend in the books I read. :) What are your favorite books?

      I love historical fiction but haven’t heard of Gail Tsukiyama. Will have to pick that up sometime. Sounds like a Japanese one? Shopaholic is real funny, I like reading that too. A total chick flick lol. Though I don’t pick it up for a second read as much as other books.

      Hmm favourites? That’s a tough one. I like Dan Brown. Jed Rubenfeld “The Interpretation of Murder” is a great one that I love – very psychological with Sigmund Freud and Carl Jung in the story. My latest favourite that I finished reading not too long ago is “The Good Earth” by Pearl S. Buck. This one I REALLY recommend. It’s fiction but interestingly very accurate about the Chinese culture and mindset.

        Yup! As a person who isn’t crazy about historical fiction, I really really enjoyed reading her books. They’re really exciting and descriptive. Did you know that there is a new Shopaholic book? I can’t wait to read that one. :D

        I never read this books before. I heard of Sigmund Freud though because I took psychology before. I’ll look into those books. Btw, I love how we keep on replying….the chain of replies is growing longer and longer, haha.

          Haha I know right! I love it too, it’s not everyday I meet someone who loves to read as much as me! And I love finding out about new books that I ought to be reading :)

    I love this little tearoom in Falls of Feugh. Awhile back I made a similar blog entry too http://pehsun.blogspot.com/2010/09/high-on-tea.html

    I have been back to that place almost a dozen times now and every single time I am totally amazed by that Strawberry laden tearoom.
