In brief...

Skye’s reknowned Three Chimneys Restaurant has announced the creation of a new menu celebrating the food from the island and surrounding area.

The Seven Courses of Skye menu by head chef Michael Smith has created a fantastic menu using from seafood, vegetables, salads and herbs grown within a few miles of the kitchen door, to sweet, heather-fed Skye lamb. The special menu will run alongside the usual three-course fixed price menu, which will offer diners an even wider selection of truly seasonal, regional food.

The Fisherman’s Tavern in Broughty Ferry is celebrating after appearing the 2009 editon of the Good Beer Guide. It is the only Scottish pub to have featured in the guide for 35 consecutive years.

Published by Campaign for Real Ale, the Good Beer Guide is Britain’s best selling independent guide to good beer and good pubs.

The Fisherman’s Tavern, owned by Belhaven Brewery, is one of only nine others in the United Kingdom boasting an exemplary record.

The Wee Restaurant in North Queensferry will be re-opening for lunch on Sundays due to popular demand.

The Wee Restaurant has also just launched The Wee Restaurant “Outside” following an increasing demand for chef Craig Wood’s catering services out with the restaurant.

Scotland’s new national food guide is now live, a hub of information on Scottish restaurants, chefs, food and drink.

The interactive, all-new website provides news, independent reviews, links to all the latest offers, and publishes feedback from readers. Online now at:
