Bar and restaurant taking the name, inspiration and a fair amount of produce from the west coast peninsula for its Scottish dishes and drinks.

Eating & Drinking Guide

The 2019/20 edition of The List's Eating & Drinking Guide is out now – only £5.95 (+p&p).

The modus operandi of Ardnamurchan is to use the area as the conceptual basis of their restaurant’s identity. The peninsula offers a plentiful supply of local, fresh produce from land to sea, something that the restaurant promotes in a persuasive section on its website. If its online profile reads well, so does Ardnamurchan’s menu with the sourcing amplified at every possible opportunity. On the plate, it is delivered at a fairly high level: Isle of Mull scallops, while spending a little too long on a not-hot-enough pan, work well with a cauliflower purée and crumbled Stornoway black pudding. For mains, braised wild venison stew is an undoubted star, with the meat forgivingly tender and coated in a deep red wine sauce sweetened with redcurrant. On a wide-ranging and impressive pre-theatre menu, there is a superb cheese board that wouldn’t look out of place in some top-end restaurants. This is a well-kitted restaurant, straddling a nice line of rustic chic with its exposed brickwork and green leather banquettes, and while the tartan is prominent with whisky barrels and flashes of Harris tweed, it isn’t twee.
