The Clunie Dining Room

Book Now

Following the recent government guidelines, from 9th October 2020, we will now be closing The Clunie Dining Room to non-residents at 6pm, and residents at 10pm.

We are only permitted to sell alcohol within our outdoor areas. These include the front of the hotel and our courtyard. These areas will have comfortable covered seating with heaters and warming fires to make your experience as cosy as possible. Outdoor service will stop at 10pm.

After 10pm residents are welcome to use the Fog Room and Drawing Room, however only food and drinks can be enjoyed in their room.

We advise all customers, resident or non-resident, to make a reservation in advance. 

We welcome parties of up to 6 people from two households as per the Scottish legislation.

With menus created by Executive Chef Tim Kensett, The Clunie Dining Room showcases the art of wood-fire cooking.

The interior of the restaurant has been transformed by Argentinian artist, Guillermo Kuitca. The work, titled The Clunie River Mural, has been painted in his distinctive cubistoid style that masterfully reconciles abstraction with an illusionist form of figuration. Kuitca was in residence in Braemar for several weeks while he created this work especially for The Fife Arms and this work is his response to the hotel and its dramatic location in the heart of the Cairngorms.

Please note during the current climate that we are in, we are operating a single menu across both The Clunie Dining Room and The Flying Stag.
