Overview

Associated with its “Sister” restaurant Spey, Avon is a formal dining room serving ala carte from the Ballindaloch menu.


Named after one of Scotland's most productive salmon fishing rivers, Avon is marked by unique design, but a thrice-repeating menu within the confines of the ship. The food is the same as Spey and Ballindaloch restaurants, the difference being location and interior design. Dining is formal and meals are served on a regular schedule.

Lunch / Dinner

Menus change regularly, the food is internationally inspired, with a trend towards French classic.

Dessert

The desserts menu is as long as the dinner menu and comes with sugar free options for the health conscious.
