KEEPING IT LOCAL
Kari and Phil are now looking to expand their dining offer, increasing their opening hours across the week for both residents and non-residents.
Phil said: “When The Orangery Restaurant opened, we did have a lunch service, which we are hoping to resurrect in 2022.
“We are keen on establishing more local collaborations and recently worked with the Stirling Gantry to lay on a wine tasting and food pairing event, something which we hope to do more of next year.”
Phil added: “The focus on sustainability of food sources is increasing and we’re keen to explore direct sourcing from local producers.
“Our chef is keen on growing much of the finer produce that decorates the beautiful plates of food produced in the kitchen.
“He is also keen on foraging and we are exploring collaborations with local foragers to offer combined dining and foraging experiences.
“We welcome many overseas visitors, and it tells a great story if the plate in front of them consists largely of locally sourced, home grown and foraged produce.”
