Franklin's Restaurant @ Cluny Bank
“Sophisticated classical cooking and warm hospitality in a smart setting” - AA Inspector
Our Inspector's view
A substantial Victorian mansion in lush gardens, Cluny Bank has traditionally styled decor and a small, smart restaurant called Franklin's. There is a lot of period charm to the restaurant and a definite air of sophistication, while the menu name-checks the local Moray suppliers.

About the area
The largely undiscovered Moray coast offers miles of red sandstone cliffs that spill down to fine sandy beaches split by dramatic rocky headlands, and a chain of small towns, sleepy villages and fishing ports. The gentle breezes and warm sunshine of lazy summer days give the place a restful, relaxing air, and the evenings are a magical time too, with this part of Scotland renowned for its superb sunsets.
Elgin, the commercial and administrative centre for Moray for over eight centuries, stands on a meandering loop of the River Lossie in a richly fertile agricultural district known as the Garden of Moray. Although the townscape has been reworked and rebuilt over the years, it retains a medieval street plan with narrow alleyways leading off the broad main street, a cobbled market place, and some fine old 18th and 19th century buildings. Elgin has long been a favoured tourist centre for exploring the north-west corner of Grampian and offers a host of attractions.
