Nestled among beautiful countryside just off the A1 in beautiful Haddington, Maitlandfield House Hotel on Sidegate offers a luxurious yet homely escape from the real world – and the dining experience is no different. With award-winning chef Mark De Freitas leading the way, Maitlandfield House provide an experience at their Brasserie going beyond first-rate food. The service is crisp but not invasive, the atmosphere is elegant but comfortable, and the selection of fine wines is exceptional. The food, though, mustn’t be overlooked, and it’s some of the very best contemporary British cuisine you’ll find in East Lothian, with a dedication to quality local products fuelling a menu that balances classic dishes and modern creations. The menu changes with the seasons, but roast marinated rack of Lothian Hill lamb, fresh Icelandic haddock in Belhaven beer batter and a vegetarian bean burger with grilled Portobello mushroom and halloumi cheese are a few examples of what may be expected.
