The Hotel has developed The Red House Hotel blend, which is also served at the Hotel’s sister business, The Dalmore Inn, Blairgowrie.

A Dark Italian Espresso, it blends Brazilian Santos Beans with Colombian Excelso Beans and Ugandan Robusta Beans. The grind is Whole Bean, whilst the Roast is Dark Italian.


Hotel customers can order this very same coffee to enjoy at home by scanning the QR code which is displayed in each venue. The coffee is then delivered to their homes within three working days.


lan Bannerman, owner of the Red House Hotel in Coupar said:

“Developing our own delicious coffee blend with Blendly, is just one of the new initiatives we have introduced to celebrate our forty years of ownership. It’s also in response to customer demand, as everyone wants great coffee at any time of the day, and we were finding that artisan coffee was becoming more and more popular. As a brand it was important for us to create something unique that matches our brand values for quality and independence. We’re not a big chain hotel – we are family run, one of the biggest employers in the town, and we promote community.”




2020 is a special year for the Hotel. Dating back to Victorian times, when Coupar Angus had a vibrant railway station, the building was originally called The Railway Hotel.

When the trains ceased to run, the neighbouring potato store and railway yard was purchased by current owner Alan Bannerman’s father Norman, and his Uncle Telford, from then owners, Scottish Brewers, in 1979, with the two men calling their business partnership, Nortel Leisure.


Redeveloping the building back into a Hotel, which they called The Red House Hotel, the business opened its doors to guests in 1980. With Quality food and service at the top of  The Red House Hotel’s agenda, they understand that more and more top establishments, hotels and restaurants have increased sales of coffee three times faster than specialist outlets, by creating coffee blends that are unique to them and their customer.


Alan Bannerman continued:

"Our Beer Garden has also become a great spot to gather, drink our coffee blend, and chat in small bubble groups – our customers can come into the hotel. Coffee and a chat has become so important post covid as we all reconnect, so let’s do it over the freshest, most delicious coffee we can offer”


Head Chef at the Hotel, Nigel Liston, is excited about working with Blendly, and has plans to develop a dessert containing the Hotel’s blend.
