Worth the 5 month wait!!
Due to lock-down it was 5 months since we had eaten here!! Missed it so much! As usual the waiters were very efficient and made us aware of the COVID-19 regulations, which I must say we were very impressed by and so felt really safe!
I had all my old favourites - the salmon pate which melted in the mouth served with rhubard chutney which complemented it nicely. I followed it with the chicken dish served with the most creamy smooth mash! A delicious trio of ice cream finished off the meal nicely! My friend had the venision which she thoroughly enjoyed and the sticky toffee pudding - a huge delicious serving!! There is a 2hr slot for tables, however we were served our coffees in the little bar area to the left of entrance which was very relaxing and gave us a chance to have a "blether" and shelter from the rain! Our waiter was excellent! Remembered me from previous visits which was a lovely touch!
All the extra compliance measures are very well done - the best I have come across these last few weeks!!
DIFFICULT TIMES BUT WORTH THE VISIT
On arrival we were well received. The social distancing was explained and is perfect for the current times we live in.
Staff were very pleasant and the food was excellent. The entire experience was very pleasant and even more so when our bill was reduced by a government gratuity. Would recommend a visit to anyone and we will be returning as the menu is deserving of further exploration.
Contemporary Scottish restaurant in city centre
Ardnamurchan is a contemporary Scottish restaurant on Hope Street, opposite the Theatre Royal. As the name suggests, the West Coast peninsula of Ardnamurchan has inspired the restaurant and its owners have close links to the area. Whisky barrels, Harris tweed, exposed brick and stone walls plus designer lighting all mean that the decor treads a neat line between rustic and city centre chic.
Artisan produce from Highlands and Islands
The chefs at Ardnamurchan make the most of unique Scottish produce such as wild venison from Ardnamurchan Estate; Hebridean blue cheese and seafood landed on Barra. Some dishes, like the Arran haggis with neeps, tatties and a Ben Nevis whisky sauce, are very traditional Scottish. Others, such as the squid with Szechuan pepper and sriracha mayo take their flavours from further afield. Alongside the venison, Scotch beef, Ayrshire pork and Ardnamurchan lamb, the menus are teeming with the finest seafood. Shetland mussels, langoustines from Uist and Gigha halibut all stand out.
