Bar & Restaurant

Knockomie Hotel's Restaurant has an extensive Grill Menu which features dishes that are produced from ingredients scourced from local suppliers. Dishes such as Oak Smoked Scottish Salmon and Game Terrine. The menu also features steaks and lamb from local beef and lamb suppliers. 

All of the beef is procured from Macbeth’s butchers in Forres. Established 25 years ago, Macbeth’s supply beef that has been home-grown at their farms at Dallas, Moray. From a base of two Highland Cows grazing in front of their house, Macbeth’s have built up a herd of 180 breeding cows all with Highland blood, but most now crossed with the Aberdeen Angus Bull. Fed on grass and homemade silage with no compound feeds, they produce a high quality beef that is hung for 2–3 weeks to enhance its flavour, which we are sure you will enjoy.

The Malt Library has over 80 single malts and unique blends from all the whisky producing areas of Scotland.

Relax and savour a dram by the fire, or enjoy a personal tutoring by Penny who will take you on a tour of Scotland from the comfort of your chair.

The Speyside Malt Whisky Trail starts in Forres at Benromach Distillery, the first distillery to produce organic whisky, and takes you to such famous brands as Macallan, Glenfiddich and Glenfarclas to name just a few.
