The 1887 restaurant at The Torridon has been awarded 3 AA Rosettes.
Selected by the AA as a restaurant that represents ‘Culinary Excellence’, the accolade regards 1887 as one of the leading establishments in Scotland. 1887 joins 24 other restaurants in Scotland that have received or retained the rating in 2020.
Paul Green, head chef of 1887, said: “It’s such an honour to have been awarded 3 AA Rosettes. I’m incredibly proud of all our team and what we have achieved as we continue to showcase the world-class produce of the Scottish Highlands and the importance of sourcing sustainably and supporting local suppliers. We can’t wait to continue to deliver excellence and create unforgettable experiences for our guests.”
Utilising locally sourced products from renowned Highlands and Island suppliers, Paul has created an earthy, produce-led menu that reflects Wester Ross’ natural larder. His daily walk to the kitchen, taking in the rugged landscape and sea loch surrounding The Torridon, and around the hotel’s own Torridon Farm and two-acre Kitchen Garden, serves as inspiration for the refined dishes, where produce is presented in its purest and tastiest form, and treated through classic techniques. Dishes include Crab from the Isle of Skye, dressed with Kitchen Garden fennel and dill, local wild Grouse with heather-baked beets and Armagnac sauce, and brambles, whisky parfait and salted oats.
Spring 2020 also saw 1887’s extensive refurbishment, designed by co-owner, Rohaise Rose-Bristow to embrace comfort, design and quality whilst maintaining its elegance and history, creating a new ambience for the restaurant’s refreshed vision.
