CALLING all Andy Murrays! Loch Leven’s Larder is getting into the tennis spirit by offering visitors who share their name with the UK’s leading champion and world number four player the chance to bag a free punnet of strawberries.

The family-run restaurant, farm and gift shop, based near Kinross, is creating tennis fever in the Larder to show visitors that they don’t need to go to Murray Mound to get a taste of Wimbledon this summer.

Emma Niven, head of business at Loch Leven’s Larder, said:

“Strawberries are well and truly in season and we want to offer those lucky enough to share their name with Andy Murray the chance to taste them for free, here at the Larder.

“All we ask is that you can prove your identity and in return, we’ll give you a free punnet of the berries to enjoy.”

The Larder offers a fantastic setting to indulge in the finest strawberries and cream Scotland has to offer.

And for the strawberry lovers, there is a heavenly range of other luxurious strawberry treats including strawberry tarts and strawberry cheesecake.

Perthshire’s hidden gem, Loch Leven’s Larder, boasts a restaurant that features a stunning menu using some of the finest seasonal ingredients, grown and served at their best by the Larder’s chefs.
