THE SCRAN AND SCALLIE
Two of Scotland's top chefs, Michelin star chef Tom Kitchin and Dominic Jack of Castle Terrace Restaurant, have come together to create menus of fresh, home-cooked dishes using quality, seasonal, local produce, with the support of Head Chef Jamie Knox. Co-owners and Directors Michaela Kitchin and Philippe Nublat are overseeing operations and front of house.
The rustic but charming interior of the gastropub showcases many of the old features of the building, refreshed with modern Scottish accents and a hint of Scandinavian influences. Furnishings are distressed and reclaimed with tartan and tweeds, adding character and bringing the original interior back to life. Fabrics from the Isle of Bute mixed up with exposed original brickwork and natural tones are sitting alongside tactile Scandinavian finishings and wallpaper by Scottish design duo Timorous Beasties.
