Castle Venlaw Hotel, which was built in 1782 and has been operating as a hotel since 1949, is set a little away out of Edinburgh in the stunning scenery of the Scottish Borders. It is also home to Smithfields Bar & Restaurant, which, with its dark wood, soft leather furnishings, deep red and gold colour scheme and candlelit ambience in the evenings, is perfect for a romantic getaway. Indeed, the hotel itself offers guests idyllic and private surroundings for an escape from the city.

Chef and owner Lorna Curry trained with the Marriott hotel group and Whitbread and has over 24 years' experience in the hospitality trade, while chef David Morgan comes from a background of cooking in luxury hotels like The Balmoral and Gleneagles. With this kind of expertise from both, it's no surprise that the food here is just as refined as the hotel itself.

With all the fresh ingredients locally and ethically sourced, a three-course meal might include Bloody Mary king prawns sautéed in vodka and seasoned with a spicy tomato coulis, followed by a 35-day-aged hand-cut 10oz chargrilled Aberdeen Angus rib-eye steak with roast vine tomatoes, mushrooms stuffed with garlic butter and chunky chips, and a lavish homemade strawberry and Cranachan shortbread stack to finish.

As for drinks, Smithfields boasts a collection of fine wines specially selected by local wine experts at Villeneuve Wines and Wood Winters in Edinburgh, as well as over 30 premium whiskies and a range of bottled Scottish ales - yet more reasons to visit
