EAT ON THE GREEN: SOMETHING RATHER SPECIAL

Eat on the Green is a high quality, fine-dining restaurant in the heart of Udny Green. I had the pleasure of dining here earlier this month and this was a lovely change as I actually work here as a waitress… Was great being on the other side!

Eat on the Green is renowned for being the perfect place for special occasions. I was here for a family celebration and on the night we went, there was actually a proposal! Always endless amounts of celebrations going on in this Udny Green restaurant.

As soon as we arrived we were whisked away to The LSV (which is short for Le Salon Vert) which is The Laurent Perrier Champagne Lounge. It’s actually the first Lauren Perrier bar to come to Scotland!

As you can see, it’s a beautiful wee building which is the perfect location for before and after dinner drinks. To access this exclusive part of Eat on the Green, you can become a member! Members also receive special bottle prices and invitations to exclusive members-only events during the year… are you tempted yet?!

After we had a few drinks and our canapés (which were crispy haggis balls, hot smoked salmon with lemon and chive mayonnaise and a tomato gazpacho; amazing) in the lounge, we went through to the main dining area to start the feast…

For starters, I had the roasted carrot and celeriac soup with garlic and rosemary focaccia; it was lovely (especially the focaccia, I recommend!)

In between the starter and the main course, we got a refreshing lemon sorbet to cleanse the palette! (I was clearly too hungry to take a picture of this…)

Now onto the main course; I had the Oldmeldrum beef (and so did everyone else that I was with… adventurous, I know). As you can see below, there was a chargrilled fillet and braised beef cheek, rustic hand cut chips, baked carrot, caramelised shallot and red wine sauce. The picture explains itself… absolutely amazing!

Of course, we had to leave room for dessert in which I had the Little Taste of Eat on the Green which included sticky toffee pudding, chocolate torte, iced terrine and a lemon posset.

Here’s a closer look at the chocolate torte… yes you guessed it; it’s amazing. Also, I didn’t have two desserts, although this is something I would consider doing in the future…

If you weren’t already too full by this point, here are the petit fours; chocolate brownies, amaretti biscuits and Scottish tablet!

It was an absolutely delicious, high class meal which was also made special by the immaculate service by the team at Eat on the Green, not forgetting the kilted chef; Craig Wilson!

So basically, if you don’t leave Eat on the Green completely stuffed then you’ve definitely done it wrong!
