Our Food Philosophy

Our passionate chefs have created menus that are locally sourced, where possible, and celebrate the very best Scotland has to offer. Across land, sea and air, Islay is brimming with local ingredients, ranging from seafood and game to freshly grown vegetables and herbs. So much of the produce we source is free-range and from small-scale farmers and suppliers on Islay in a bid to reduce food air miles, whilst supporting artisan businesses that ecologically manage the land.
