Most recently, the entire cast and crew of HBO’s Succession – who stayed at Gleneagles for several days to film an episode for the series – enjoyed the culinary delights on offer.
Perhaps the most famous dinner of all took place on Wednesday 6 July, 2005, when Her Majesty The Queen hosted a state dinner for heads of government. Cooked by the late great chef, Andrew Fairlie, dinner comprised a starter of Marrbury Smoked Salmon with Roasted Langoustines and Herb Salad; Roast Fillet of Glenearn Lamb with Broad Beans and Peas, Aubergine Caviar and Parmesan Polenta; and Textures of Chocolate. The wines selected by our sommelier for dinner that evening included a Louis Roederer Quartet NV, Wehlener Sonnenuhr Reisling Spätlese 1995, Masseto 1994 Ornellaia and a Château Climens, Barsac 1990.
During the dinner, The Queen led the singing of ‘Happy Birthday’ for President Bush!
