Welcome to the “Auld Alliance”.
I pride myself on using local ingredients sourced where possible from local suppliers.
Our meat is supplied by:
“Welcome to Ballards Butchers, a family run farmer-butcher shop in Castle Douglas. We sell tender and flavoursome Scotch Beef, Scotch Lamb and Scotch Pork to online customers across the UK. Our meat comes from our own farm and a few other carefully selected local farms. Traditional breed meat reared for tenderness and delivered with care.”
Ice cream is supplied by:
“Glen Urr Ice cream is lovingly made with the milk and cream produced from our award winning herd of Ayrshire cows at Halmyre Farm, Haugh of Urr, Castle Douglas. We also make a wide range of fruit sorbets which are made from fresh fruit when available. These are extremely popular with those who may have lacto intolerance but enjoy the experience of an ice cream. The texture of our sorbets is not in any way ‘icy’ but creamy and luxurious and packed full of fruit flavour. We pride ourselves in using 100% natural ingredients. There are no artificial colourings or preservatives in either our ice creams or sorbets.”
Cheese is supplied by:
“Why isn’t our cheese called ‘Cream o’ Galloway Cheese’?
Because there’s already a company based in Stranraer who make ‘Galloway Cheddar’ and they have all rights to the use of the word ‘Galloway’ in association with the word ‘cheese’.
Wilma & David Finlay established Cream o’ Galloway ice cream in 1994 and now make Finlay’s Farmhouse Cheese too. Handmade at Cream o’ Galloway with our own organic milk, our cheeses are all made with vegetarian rennet.
All of our soft cheeses are pasteurised. Our hard cheeses have been matured for between 4 and 12 months.”
I hope you enjoy eating at my restaurant.
