“Sarah and Jane’s brilliant, back-of-beyond bistro”
Lochaline’s Whitehouse Restaurant has collected new accolades.
The new year brings a crop of updated food guides, and the first two to come to our attention are the Michelin Guide http://www.viamichelin.co.uk/ and Pete Irvine’s Scotland the Best.
Michelin describe the Whitehouse as an “Understated, wood-panelled restaurant in remote headland village. Constantly evolving blackboard menu of local seafood, game and garden produce. Unfussy, flavoursome cooking. Hands-on owners.”
Scotland the Best enthuses more expansively. The Whitehouse “sits above the ferry port as the Mull boats come in, a restaurant adjacent the village shop with all the right/best principles: local produce, organic, imaginative cooking. Ingredients from Mull and Lochaber – bay, woods and hedgerow in Sarah and Jane’s brilliant, back-of-beyond bistro. Quiet days in Ardnamurchan begin here. Pan-fried Lochaber stag’s liver with Oban whisky and capers, anyone? Lovely tartines. Perfect!”
Apart from with Pete’s description of the location (the Whitehouse is definitely in Morvern), we can only agree.
