Deer Duck Bistro


Deer Duck Bistro is a stunning hunting and baronial hall themed restaurant in Auchenflower, with a rabbit warren of dining rooms replete with gilt framed mirrors, oil paintings and the odd stag head.

Offering a degustation dining experience that is worth crossing town for, with its charming setting of mismatching antique chairs and crockery and cutlery, Deer Duck Bistro also has a la carte options in addition to the degustation menu and a bar next door with its own excellent bar food menu.

Open for dinner as well as lunch on Friday and Saturday, Deer Bistro also offers an indulgent After Dinner Experience of hand-made chocolates paired with Rum or Grappa, as well as special themed dinner events, with the next one to be held on July 21st.

Diners can choose from a selection of Degustation menus - Five Course, Short Course (7) and Long Course (9), each of which have a full vegetarian option. A matching wine selection is available with all of the degustations.
