The Hawthorn Restaurant

5 Keil Crofts, Benderloch, OBAN, PA37 1QS

1 rosettes

A short drive from Oban, this relaxed restaurant occupies a low-slung building on a 300-year-old working croft. Inside, an almost Nordic sparseness - dark wood floors, bare tables and exposed stone - is the backdrop to the smart menu of old favourites and gently contemporary ideas. Isle of Mull scallops come tempura style, with caramelised leek purée and soy and lime jelly bringing a balance of salt and sour notes. Main course delivers a piggy trio of slow-cooked belly, fillet and a croquette of pulled pork and potato matched with carrot and thyme purée and creamy Calvados sauce. Finish with sticky toffee pudding with brandy-soaked prunes and gingerbread ice cream.
