Taste our Best
The Restaurant at Eriska has been awarded 'Taste our Best' by Visit Scotalnd and holds a mark in the Good Food Guide 2013. In 2010 we won the "Taste of Scotland Award" at the Scottish Thistle Awards and in March 2011 we were delighted to be awarded the "Hotel Restaurant of The Year” at the Scottish Restaurant Awards. Our award-winning chef serves an impressively diverse selection of fresh and seasonal produce. As well as our comprehensive wine list we are renowned for our famous Farmhouse Cheese Trolley which is a favourite with our guests.
Ross Stovold - Head Chef
Ross Stovold previously held the position as head chef at Alimentum in Cambridge. Alimentum is a 50 cover restaurant which currently holds 3 AA Rosettes and a Michelin Star. He also has a range of good quality businesses on his list of achievements, most recently Sat Bains in Nottingham and the New Angel in Devon. Ross' focus is on bringing a training and development ethos to the kitchen.
Part of Ross' concept is to employ four apprentices in his team alongside a strong top level, leaving him time to train and work with the juniors in an endeavour to grow our own chefs of the future.
His focus is on using the produce that the west coast of Scotland has to offer. Salad, herbs and mushrooms from our own gardens, jellies and chutneys made from Eriska's own berries, fish from the local fishermen, meat from the local butcher and game from the surrounding estates.
Our kitchen team pride themselves in their use of the freshest, local produce in a way which develops and enhances the flavours and taste of the food. Local suppliers have been sourced and by working closely with them over a great deal of time we have forged relationships which ensure the best Scottish Menus can be expected.
Our dinner menu changes on a daily basis and offers a choice of starters and a choice of main courses, one a fish from the surrounding waters another a meat dish from the hills surrounding the island and a final vegetarian alternative inspired by one of the gardens or larders close at hand.
Please note that due to our geographic location and how we procure our food we need at least 24 hours notice when booking to be able to accommodate non-residents and any diteary requirements.
