Three Chimneys in the UK top five

Head chef Scott Davies thanked the restaurant’s staff and suppliers

THE Three Chimneys on the Isle of Skye has been rated one of the UK’s top five restaurants by travel site Tripadvisor.

Announced as part of the site’s annual Travellers’ Choice Awards for Restaurants, The Three Chimneys was listed as the number five restaurant in the UK. Tripadvisor said the list is designed “to celebrate the best-rated fine dining establishments around the world”; it is based on the standard of reviews over a 12-month period, as opposed to a judging panel.

It was also recently named UK Restaurant of the Year in the Good Food Guide and received the AA’s Food Service Award.

Commenting on the listing Scott Davies, head chef at The Three Chimneys, paid tribute to the restaurant’s staff and suppliers.

“What I really want to say is thanks,” he said.

Shirley Spear, who owns the restaurant with husband Eddie, said that she is “staggered at the consistency of great reviews we have received for our food and all-round experience since head chef Scott Davies joined the business”.
