Media Release: Pittodrie House Hotel wins further award for excellence

THE award-winning Mither Tap Restaurant, at Pittodrie House Hotel, garnered a further accolade this month, when it was awarded the Eat Safe Award for its commitment to go above and beyond the legislated requirements for food retail standards.

The prestigious award comes in the wake of the much coveted AA 2 rosettes rating, which the restaurant was delighted to win, in March of this year.

It puts Pittodrie House Hotel among a only handful of restaurants to currently hold the award, which was launched in 2005 by the Food Standards Agency Scotland.

The hotel’s winning streak is testament to the vision of recently appointed head chef, Graham Campbell, who believes in more than just the appearance of a good menu.

As Graham points out: “Serving outstanding food is about more than inventive recipes. If you can say something exciting and fresh with your combinations and then add the very best in terms of freshness of ingredients and kitchen standards then your food really works on all fronts.”

Martin McIlraith, general manager, continues: “Since Graham arrived we have really seen our customer satisfaction soar.

“To be told that we are achieving outstanding results in terms of food standards too is  a real acknowledgment of all that we are doing here.

“We have been pushing the complexity and adventurousness of our menu but our commitment to the fundamentals of good food preparation has not waivered in the process – the two really go hand in hand for us here.”
