Scotts heads into spring with new menus for Largs and Troon

Ayrshire’s popular restaurant brand, Scotts, has revealed a collection of new spring menus at its venues in Largs and Troon.

The stylish eateries, operated by hospitality group Buzzworks, are now serving an array of dishes that aim to ‘capture the very essence of the season’.

And with an eye on the 152nd Open happening at Royal Troon later this year, both the Largs and Troon chef teams have been working closely with Buzzworks’ head of food, Scott van der Hoek, to create an exciting menu that showcases the very best flavours Scotland has to offer to both local and international visitors alike.

Head Chef at Scotts Troon, Danny Poli, said: “All eyes will be on Ayrshire in the coming months and with spring on our doorstep and summer just a few months away, we’re excited to present this brand-new menu offering to guests both old and new.

“There are still lots of classic Scotts dishes on offer, but our teams in Largs and Troon have worked together to develop a delicious new range of options which reflect the lighter evenings and sunnier days.”

Among the highlights of the new menus is a whole new section dedicated to refreshing salads. The standout is the poke bowl – a nutritious ensemble of wasabi nuts, pak choi, avocado, edamame beans, picked carrot, radish, tomato and lemon and mint dressing, said to offer a ‘refreshing and satisfying’ meal.

Meanwhile, the specialties section of the new menus celebrates seasonal ingredients and classic flavours, such as pan seared chicken breast served with wild garlic butter, asparagus tips, roast baby potatoes, and tarragon cream.

The spring menu also brings a light lunch section, with options such as the vegan-friendly pea and shallot tortellini, served with pea fricassee, lemon mascarpone, pangrattato, and vegan parmesan cheese.

Deputy manager of Scotts Troon, Beth Neilson, said: “There really is something for everyone with our brand-new spring menus – whether you’re a seafood lover, vegan or vegetarian, or just in the mood for something lighter, we’ll have the dish for you.

“As well as our new spring offering, we’re going to continue running our popular Fork Out for Less breakfast, lunch and dinner menus, as well as our much-loved Steak Night and Surf and Turf options.”

General manager of Scotts Largs, Natalie McKinnon, added: “As we continue to add to and develop our brilliant menu offerings, we’re actively looking for kitchen and front-of-house staff to join our teams across Ayrshire to help deliver some of the best hospitality that Scotland has to offer.

“If you’re passionate about great food and excellent service, then we want to hear from you!”
