Inver Restaurant

Strathlachlan, STRACHUR, PA27 8BU

3 rosettes

Inver Restaurant is AA Restaurant of the Year for Scotland 2016-2017. Pam Brunton and Rob Latimer have made quite a metaphorical splash on the shores of Loch Fyne. Their low-slung whitewashed cottage sits in splendid isolation by the water's edge, and a well-designed interior spec provides contemporary simplicity tempered by a couple of real fires. A stack of vinyl records provides a cool backing track. If the interior brings to mind the purity of Scandinavian design, well, that is perhaps no coincidence, for Pam's time spent at Noma in Copenhagen has helped inspire her culinary approach too (check out the cookbooks on show to find further clues). The menu reflects the seasons and the local terroir, and modern cooking techniques enhance the ingredients to maximum affect. Lunch can be Loch Fyne langoustines with sourdough bread, while the evening four-course menu might get going with a heavenly bowl of girolles and potato dumplings, enriched with an egg yolk. Roe deer stars with fresh walnuts and walnut milk, the tender meat concealed under wafer-thin slices of celeriac, with a glorious sweet-sharp hit from some local brambles, or go for cured halibut with lard and cauliflower. To finish, almond cake with greengages and bitter almond custard is a bang on bit of baking. Children have their own wee menu, and the wine list, like everything else here, lifts the spirits.
