Staff recreate 100-year-old menu for Xmas at Atholl Palace


Staff at the Atholl Palace found a menu dating back to 1914 and are re-creating the dishes from Christmas 100 years ago in order to raise funds for the Royal British Legion.

The Atholl Palace Hotel in Pitlochry, recently judged to be one of the most ‘jaw-droppingly srtunning’ places to stay by tourism website TravelGround, is serving uo a feast that includes starters such as Radishes, Assorted Olives and Celery and Cold Sliced Beef Tongue followed by Young Turkey, Cranberry Sauce, Currant Dressing and Giblet Gravy with Pumpkin Pie and Amontillado Sherry to finish off.

The four star hotel is passing on £1 for each lunch served during December to the charity.

Graeme Strachan, general manager at Atholl Palace Hotel, commented that perhaps ending a meal at the table with White Rock cigars or Fatima cigarettes, which were offered on the 1914 menu, probably isn’t the done thing nowadays.
