Palace Hotel Peterhead
The Palace Hotel Peterhead
offers an extensive breakfast, lunch and evening meal menu. Meals can be eaten in the bar or the bistro section. It is a delight to visit the Hotel, it is always efficient and a warm welcome is always given. It is one of the few Hotels in the area that still has a maitre de and all staff are smartly attired in matching uniforms. Service is always prompt though not rushed, even on a busy day. Though the hotel and staff seem formal it has a relaxed atmosphere and the surroundings have a retro feel with the old Cadbury's wall plaques, wooden ornaments and pictures. There is plenty of room between the tables and families are welcome. Highchairs are available and disabled and pushchair access is via the lift.

My new novel:
The Aberdeen skies are under attack from an enemy jet. It is spilling a strange yellow smoke. Minutes later, people start killing each other.
Former Royal Air Force Regiment Gunner Jason Harper witnesses this and then his wife, Pippa, telephones him, shouting that she needs him. They then get cut off. He sets straight out, unprepared for the nightmare that unfolds during his journey. Everyone seems to want to kill him.
Along the way, he pairs up with fellow survivor Imogen. But she enjoys killing the living dead far too much. Will she kill Jason in her blood thirst? Or will she hinder his journey through this zombie filled dystopian landscape to find his pregnant wife?
The Fence is the first in this series of post-apocalyptic military survival thrillers from the torturous mind of local horror and science fiction novel writer C.G. Buswell.

Menus At Palace Hotel Peterhead
Menus are extensive and there are daily specials of soup of the day, over three main meals and an extra pudding.
Recommended starters include haggis croquettes served in a luxurious whisky sauce which are delightfully soft and moist in the centre. The seafood chowder gives an early indication of how well the chefs prepare and serve their locally caught seafood. It is thick and generously portioned with chunks of prawns, cod and haddock.
There are a range of burgers, steaks and salads in the main menu. For the big appetites there is a huge mixed grill which contains a steak, sausage, lamb cutlet, liver, bacon, and black pudding with a fried egg, tomatoes, mushrooms and onion rings.
All seafood is caught locally and is lovely and fresh and served in many ways which includes a tasty seafood curry with various thick chunks of fish in a mild creamy curry sauce. Filleted fish is served in traditional sauces and seasonal vegetables and there is a delicious seafood crumble with several fish and salmon and prawns with a creamy white sauce and a lovely cheesy glazed topping.
Have you seen my beautiful golden retriever Lynne out and about in Aberdeen? Ask her for a high-five! She's a Bravehound PTSD assistance dog, so we'll often be in shops, restaurants, and the cinema together.
We've written a book where I talk about growing up in Aberdeen and then joining the army to be a medic and nurse, and developing military Post Traumatic Stress Disorder.
I also talk about losing my son to suicide and the therapy I have had at Royal Cornhill Hospital and grief support groups in Aberdeen.
The author, Damien Lewis, said of Lynne:
"A powerful account of what one dog means to one man on his road to recovery. Both heart-warming and life-affirming. Bravo Chris and Lynne. Bravo Bravehound."
