OXFORD MILLS - The Brigadoon Restaurant is a delight to the senses with its amazing casual lunch and fine dining menus and unique meeting rooms.

First, you take in the striking facade at 9 Bridge Street, located just a few minutes from Highway 416 via County Road 44. The 1853 heritage building offers up three floors with a restaurant on the main level and several dining, meeting and party rooms upstairs. The decor is Victorian, right down to the knick knacks and teapots. Going there is a tradition to those who have already discovered it since its opening 28 years ago.

"We really focus on service and attention to detail," says Stephanie Mackie, who grew up in the restaurant and now manages it along with her grandmother, Brigadoon founder and owner Cheryl Mackie. Together they strive to make every visit special with fresh and flavourful meals.  

Cheryl opened the Brigadoon on New Year's Eve in 1989. To her surprise, 35 people came to dinner that first night even though she didn't advertise. A short time later, the restaurant was featured on Ottawa's Regional Contact show and business picked up immediately. It has since become a landmark eatery.

"It's about doing something a little different," says Cheryl, noting all dishes, including their big dessert menu, are made with care on site. Her British upbringing is reflected in the menu. Friday nights feature roast beef and Yorkshire pudding. 

There is a three-course dinner special each Saturday with wine pairings. On Sundays, there is a "full English Breakfast."  The restaurant is open seven days a week. Afternoon tea is offered if booked in advance. They offer food to go, including frozen homemade soups, beef and chicken pies.

"It truly is a destination restaurant with its ambiance and good food," says Denise McCanna. She and her husband Colin have been loyal customers for 25 years. They live in Manotick but sometimes drive to the Brigadoon up to three times a week. "It's well worth the trip," she says.

Learn more about the Brigadoon by visiting its Facebook page and website. You can also follow them on Instagram. Contact them via email or call to make a reservation at 613-258-4433.
