Eat on the Green
This review is taken from the 2011 edition.
Craig Wilson’s popular and well-respected restaurant is something of a flag-bearer for rural Aberdeenshire. A French style of cooking prevails in the upmarket style dishes, but this is a place with its roots in the local area.
This fi ne-dining restaurant in a rural location has carved out quite a reputation for itself. Under the auspices of chef/proprietor Craig Wilson, also known as ‘The Kilted Chef’, it delivers imaginative and contemporary dining. Lunch, afternoon tea and dinner are delivered with exquisite presentation and attention to detail. Ingredients are sourced as locally and seasonally as possible, with Wilson working in conjunction with a number of respected Aberdeenshire suppliers and utilising handpicked herbs from private gardens in Udny Green. Despite the high culinary standards the service is relaxed and unpretentious. If you fancy getting down and dirty in the kitchen they offer ‘Chef for a day’ experiences.
