Fridays Hebridean Tasting Meal at 7pm £40

The Outer Hebrides have unique geology, landscape, climate and history. Life at the very edge of Britain has traditionally been very difficult for people who had to try to win their existence in the face of stormy oceans, howling gales, long winters and shallow boggy soil.

image003Lewis is home to traditional Hebridean crofts, heather moorland and unique Machair. This creates a rich and diverse habitat for animals, producing excellent wild and free range meat and fish- free from pesticides, and chemicals.

Summer brings nearly 24 hours of daylight but the wind makes kitchen gardening challenging. We do, however, grow a range of vegetables, herbs and edible flowers in The Decca garden.

Our Hebridean tasting meal is designed to introduce guests to local produce based on traditional Scottish and Hebridean recipes.

 

Advance booking for The Hebridean Tasting Meal is essential. The set menu will feature six dishes made using the finest available produce from local sources such as...

  • "Isle of Lewis Cheese Company producing a range of cheeses from their own goats
  • Stornoway Smokehouse traditionally smoked salmon, mackerel and cheese
  • Free range Ness crofters eggs
  • Cross Stores own Marag Dubh (Yallie's granny's recipe) and delicious sausages
  • Line-caught white fish from Port of Ness
  • Fresh fish and seafood from boats working out of Stornoway
  • Free range pork from North Dell
  • Local wild venison
  • Rabbit from the flower-rich Ness Machair
  • Hebridean Mutton from TolstaChaolais- mature, moor-run and melts in the mouth
  • The Harris Gin Company - says it all!
  • Pete's peat-smoked coffee
  • Plus, of course, Louise's artisan breads

Evening restaurant


Expect hearty portions prepared with care and love often accompanied by Pete on the grand piano.

All our food is sourced as locally and as ethically as possible from an excellent range of freshly caught fish and meat. This is usually slowly and gently roasted or braised to create succulant tender tasty dishes in a traditionally Scottish manner.

Evening meals must be booked in advance and we will discuss the menu in advance as we do not generally offer a choice.
