VisitScotland-300x100Two Aberdeenshire restaurants which source and feature local produce within their menus are celebrating after receiving a Taste Our Best Food and Drink Scheme award.


Hornblowers Restaurant & Takeaway in Gourdon and the Falls of Feugh Restaurant & Function Suite in Banchory have both recently been awarded the accreditation.

Taste Our Best is a joint initiative between VisitScotland and the Scottish Government. Launched in 2013, the scheme is designed to recognise businesses including hotels, restaurants, cafes, takeaways, visitor attractions and B&Bs that not only offer a quality food and drink experience, but include and promote Scottish produce on their menus, to give consumers choice.

Results from the 2011/12 Scotland Visitor Survey highlighted that the sampling of local produce is the second highest activity undertaken by visitors when they come to Scotland.Hospitality is at the heart of the family-run Falls of Feugh Restaurant & Function Suite, in Banchory. Award-winning chef John Chomba showcases the best of modern British cuisine, and prides himself on providing great food and service in outstanding surroundings. His approach of using only the best local and seasonal ingredients combined with innovative methods and techniques results in dishes that showcase Scottish produce at its finest.

The restaurant sources its meat and poultry from Yorkes of Dundee and HM Sheridan in Ballater, dairy produce from Graham’s Dairy in Bridge of Allan, fish and seafood from Blue Flag in Aberdeen and berries from Barra Berries in Inverurie and Castleton Farm at Laurencekirk.


Chef patron, John Chomba, from Falls of Feugh Restaurant & Function Suite, said:
“The award from VisitScotland is a fantastic achievement for us and reflects the hard work we have put in since taking over the business eight months ago. To have received such a good grading from VisitScotland on both our menu and our service is great recognition and we are all thrilled.”
