Bay­wa­ter Restau­rant

The Oban Times - - Leisure -

RE­LAUNCHED last year, The Ari­saig Ho­tel’s restau­rant Bay­wa­ter, now has a new lease of life. Owner Josh Kingswood bought the ho­tel in 2013 and with a new chef and a fresh menu the ho­tel has been fully restored. New chef Robert Bir­rell, who started in March this year, has cre­ated a ver­sa­tile menu whether you want tea or cof­fee with a home-baked bis­cuit, scones or cakes, a snack, a hearty lunch, or a re­laxed evening meal. Bring­ing some great new sea­sonal dishes to the restau­rant, chef Robert uses lo­cally sourced pro­duce as well as bak­ing his own bread, oat­cakes, bis­cuits and cakes. Changes are made to the menu ev­ery few days based on the best in­gre­di­ents avail­able at the time. The most pop­u­lar dish on the menu is sole stuffed with a lan­gous­tine and salmon mousse, which gets rave re­views from all the cus­tomers. Also on the menu at the mo­ment is foie gras and ham hock ter­rine. Evening meals can be en­joyed in the Bay­wa­ter restau­rant from 6.30 - 8.30pm, ev­ery­day apart from Tues­days. You can also en­joy a meal in The Crofters Bar which is open ev­ery­day from 11:30am till late. One of only a few pubs in Ari­saig, The Crofters Bar of­fers a va­ri­ety of dishes, from fresh scal­lops, to the very pop­u­lar, half lobster sup­per. In the bar ev­ery Fri­day night is live tra­di­tional mu­sic ses­sions from lo­cal bands. The Ari­saig Ho­tel will also be tak­ing part in the up­com­ing Mal­laig food fes­ti­val, where chef Robert will be do­ing a demon­stra­tion dur­ing the day, show­ing peo­ple how he hot smokes his own salmon.
