Dining / Breakfast Room at the Royal Country Inn

Dinner is a la carte or a buffet, depending on the number of guests. There is the larger dining room, which also serves as a breakfast room, and the smaller grill room for more private dining.

Grill Room at the Royal Country Inn

The larger dining area opens onto small courtyards on either side. Daniel and Motz love indigenous trees, and planted a Combritum (or Bush Willow) in the larger courtyard, which we are proud to say is growing very nicely! It is a lovely shadey corner to enjoy tea, or a coffee, or even dinner, lunch or breakfast, since our weather usually plays the game!

Meal times:

  • Breakfast: 7 am to 9 am on weekdays 8 am to 10 am on weekends
  • Lunch: 12 pm to 2 pm
  • Dinner: 6 pm to 8 pm

The Courtyard at the Royal Country Inn

Join us for a drink at the resident pub – the Garrulous Griffin – dedicated to the 24th Welsh Regiment who fought so valiantly at the battle of Rorke’s Drift.

Daniel and Motz restored the original public bar and have created a pub bursting with charm and atmosphere, and highly conducive to a quiet night at the pub counter. Pub lunches are served.

Pub hours:

  • 1 pm - 9 pm

Garrulous Griffin Pub

If the pub seems too tempting – relax in the lounge, read your book, browse the memorabilia, or just recover from a day’s travelling or touring…

The Royal Country Inn also boasts a cosy, well stocked library with books of the history of Dundee and its surrounds and of the many battles fought in the area.

Indulge yourself before going out on a field trip or after returning from one of the Battlefield Sites to educate yourself further on our rich cultural past.
