The Whistle Restaurant

Welcome to The Whistle at Friars Carse!

Join up with friends at the historic Whistle Restaurant at Friars Carse. Scotland’s very own Rabbie Burns raised more than a few glasses here in his day! Our kitchen specialises in contemporary Scottish cuisine with a European flair, sourcing local produce in season. Our expert chefs are happy to adapt dishes to most any dietary requirement.

The restaurant is open throughout the week, serving breakfast, lunches, afternoon teas, and dinner daily.

While Friars Carse is dog-friendly, non-service animals are not allowed in the main dining area. Not to worry though for guests wishing to dine with their best friend, our staff will be happy to set you a table in our lounge or bar! While walking the grounds, we also ask that you keep your dog on a lead as there are free-range guinea fowl and peacocks on the estate.


The hotel can be quite busy, so we strongly encourage booking your table in advance. For reservations and further details, contact our reception team on 01387 740 388 or email
