Taste Our Best

Posted: 15th May 2017

Having seen the trays of tasty strawberries arriving last week and the impact it had on the specials menu, I thought it was about time that we featured our great local suppliers in our blog. We pride ourselves in using quality local and seasonal produce and as a result we were recently recognised with a Taste our Best award from VisitScotland. If you see egg trays or strawberry trays sitting on top of a car this is the best way we have found to remind Brian to go and collect some more supplies! 

Here is a summary of the provenance of some of the produce used in our menu:

Fruit & Vegetables

When possible and in season we use fruit and vegetables that are sourced in Scotland. We are supplied by Failte Foods who deliver direct from Glasgow’s fruit and vegetable market. We also buy direct from local farms. Our strawberries are from George Christie at Myreton of Claverhouse, our potatoes come from John Brown, West Adamson Farm. We get our brussel sprouts from Crofts farm, Carmylie as a Christmas Tree grower and with the amount of visitors to the farm in December it was essential to us to get a great sprout supplier!.

Dairy & Eggs

Our milk and cream comes from Kerr’s Dairy, the only local dairy left in Dundee and is delivered daily by Drew. We collect our free range eggs direct from Arbuckles at Lundie Castle. Our icecream is supplied by Mackies of Scotland at Westertown farm who also supply our crisps and our cheese is Lockerbie cheddar.

Meat

Our butcher is Yorkes of Dundee Ltd who buy direct from farmers at local livestock markets. The burgers they do are the best and are a regular feature on our specials menu. We also use the famous Stornoway Black Pudding in our breakfasts and on our breakfast rolls. 

Bakery

Our local bakery, Rough & Fraser supply us with our morning rolls. Our shortbread and biscuits are handmade at Your Piece Baking Company in Fife and McDermott’s of Dundee supply our tablet and some of our traybakes.

Drinks

Our refreshing pure fruit juices, presses and cordials are from Fior Fruits at Monimail, near Cupar.

If you are local producers and think your product would be great on our menu please don't hesitate to get in touch.
