The Oban Times - - Districts -

AN ARGYLL ho­tel has been cho­sen as one of the top 200 restau­rants in the UK in the Tatler Res­tau­rant Guide for 2016.

The Airds Ho­tel and Res­tau­rant in Port Ap­pin, near Oban, is the only es­tab­lish­ment in Argyll to be named in the an­nual guide and one of only 50 restau­rants sit­u­ated out­side Lon­don.

The res­tau­rant prides it­self on us­ing lo­cal pro­duce and head chef Chris Stan­ley was rec­om­mended in the Miche­lin Guide in 2016.

Airds Ho­tel and Res­tau­rant owner Shaun McKivra­gan said: ‘We are over the moon to have been in­cluded in the pres­ti­gious Tatler Res­tau­rant Guide 2016.

‘It is a real tes­ta­ment to head chef Chris Stan­ley and gen­eral man­ager Gra­ham Steven that they have achieved this.’

Re­gional di­rec­tor for Visit Scot­land David Adams McGilp said: ‘My con­grat­u­la­tions go to the team at the Airds Ho­tel and Res­tau­rant on achiev­ing this sta­tus.

‘It is ac­co­lades such as these that help to boost the grow­ing rep­u­ta­tion of restau­rants, cafes, bars and pubs in Argyll and the Isles.

‘Food and drink are an in­te­gral part of the out­stand­ing tourism ex­pe­ri­ence the re­gion of­fers so it’s im­por­tant we pro­mote the fan­tas­tic qual­ity of our lo­cal pro­duce and the su­perb stan­dard of cater­ing on of­fer here so that we in­spire more vis­i­tors to ex­plore the re­gion.’
