SCOTTISH seafood is to become a feature for independent multiple operator, Signature Pub Group, after it signed an exclusive supply deal with north east fishery Amity Fish Company.

The deal sees the Peterhead fish firm supplying lobsters and langoustines to three of Signature’s Edinburgh venues: Badger & Co. on Castle Street, Kyloe Restaurant & Grill on Rutland Street and Element on Rose Street.

Each of the restaurants will feature a special menu, developed with Andante Bakery in Morningside, which includes lobster served on a roll that has been created specially for the purpose.

Ross Ingleson, Signature’s group executive chef, said: “We are lucky to have such incredible seafood in Scotland, but often we find that it is being shipped abroad, or when it does reach local restaurants it can be very expensive.
“Our aim is to make Scottish seafood more accessible and serve it in a way that makes the most of its great flavour.”
