With its atmospheric oak-paneled main dining room and airy converted courtyard (known as the Secret Garden), dinner at this 16th-century building near the castle gates verges on the theatrical. The menu of classic preparations has a distinctly Scottish flavor: foie gras parfait with truffle jelly and brioche toast; roast filet of Buccleuch beef with a horseradish mousseline; seafood platter (oysters, langoustines, clams, mussels, crab, smoked salmon, and a lobster). If you just can't get enough of the tapestries, gilding, and rich fabrics, stay overnight in one of the seven romantic suites upstairs.
