Not becasue it is International Carrot Day but becasue we reopen for the 2014 season with Mike and Lee back in the kitchen. This assumes they make it through customs with all the incredible spices they have hand picked while in India.  I hope the sniffer dogs can tell the difference between the finest saffron and other products from Goa!  

 

 

We may be shut but you can still buy our food!

Mike and Lee cooked a number of lovely dishes for us before they headed off for the winter which we have for sale in the Ardtornish Estate Information Centre (01967421288).  These include creamy cauliflower cheese which I think is delicious, slow cooked belly of Argyll pork with vegetables and a number of fantastic Indian dishes including a lamb curry.  If you want any further information please email us on info@thewhitehouserestaurant.co.uk  Jane

Lovely new entry in the Good Food Guide 2013

The 2013 Good Food Guide is out and our entry has been updated.  It says

" With food all around, the Morvern peninsula inspires hunger;  Whitehouse co owners Jane Stuart-Smith and Sarah Jones know how to feed the HIghlands to thier guests.  Their delightful whitewashed restaurant is prettily plan and the location has attracted a kitchen team with a strong pedigree.  A fresh, appealing menu puts fish and seafood to the fore in dishes like parten bree or langoustine with rapeseed mayonnaise.  Meat from the Ardtornish Estate is another feature, demonstrating the value of long lasting local connections.  Stag liver and kidneys, ususally snaffled as the gun's treat is served here with capers and whisky jus.  Puddings are understandably boozy; try boarder tart with Tobermory malt whisky or a frozen Highland belini with home grown strawberries and Shetland gin."
