MACDONALD Hotels & Resorts has unveiled a new restaurant at its Houston House property on the outskirts of Edinburgh.
Award-winning chef Jeremy Wares, who previously owned the 63 Tay Street restaurant in Perth, is fronting the new eatery at the 70-bedroom hotel, which dates back to the 16th century and is said to have hosted Mary Queen of Scots.
The 39 year old chef, who was diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease three years ago, said Jeremy Wares at Houstoun House will offer “locally-sourced cuisine with a modern twist”.
“We both share the same belief and passion for offering diners flavoursome dishes based on only the finest freshest and ideally locally-sourced produce, always prepared from whole raw ingredients,” he said.
“I can’t put in the 16-hour days required to run a top restaurant any more, but that doesn’t mean I have to hang up my chef’s hat.
“Jeremy Wares at Houstoun House is a tremendous opportunity to further indulge my passion for cooking delicious dishes in a bustling restaurant environment.
“We are now working hard to make Jeremy Wares at Houstoun House a truly leading culinary destination in Scotland.”
