Have been to Ardnamurchan a few times so I knew it would be good. It’s so handy for the Theatre Royal so we booked it for the lunch deal prior to a matinee. Service was friendly and efficient therefore we got to the theatre in good time. Food was of excellent quality and was plentiful. We had mackerel pâté then fish and chips. Best mackerel pâté I’ve had and the horseradish pesto was a lovely accompaniment to it. Lunch menu deal was excellent value and included a small glass of wine.
Booked a 5pm deal so had 3 courses for less than £20. Food was amazing, service was excellent, and the staff were really friendly.
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.
