A wedding at Greens at Gretna - Scotland

a long weekend at gretna green

With Christmas well and truly done with, I made my way up to Scotland to attend a family wedding, which was a great way to mark the end of 2015. 


We stayed in 'Greens at Gretna' which is the first hotel in Scotland just as you cross the border, so it was very easy to find and there is a great retail outlet across the road with lots of well known brands. We stayed at the hotel for 3 nights and had a lovely time, it's currently going through a refurbishment so not all the rooms where complete but I can imagine them looking great if the reception area is anything to go by.

The reception, bar and restaurant is all open plan and had a stylish boutique feel, with ornate picture frames hanging to separate the areas, and a mixture of lighting and seating was used making it feel very homely and welcoming, we spent the majority of our time on the nice comfy sofas, it was definitely a great venue to have the wedding celebrations at.


All the food we ate over the three days were delicious, and the restaurant had a lovely fine dining feel. 

Firstly, the lemon cheesecake I had was out of this world, perhaps the best cheesecake I have ever eaten, it was very creamy I was so tempted to have seconds, but after my growing food baby from Christmas I thought I had better not. 

For the main meal I ate a Chicken Tequila, which was a butterflied chicken breast with lime, tequila marinade, rice and roasted vegetables which was bursting with flavor, I am going to try and recreate it myself back home because I enjoyed it so much.
