Chef Brian Home, who has worked under the helm of Andrew Fairlie and Michael Roux, has taken over the Kirkhouse Inn in Strathblane.
Dating back to 1601, it features 15 bedrooms as well as the newly refurbished Wild Thyme Lounge, the 1601 bar and a landscaped beer garden. Interior design specialist, John Amabile is currently creating a new fine dining restaurant, The Finnich, which will open next month.
Said Brian, “The Kirkhouse has been welcoming guests for hundreds of years but latterly, for many reasons, it had become neglected.
“When we saw its spectacular location and the busy thoroughfare right on its door-step it was easy to see the potential it offered. We have big plans and have already invested around £100,000 in changes which customers can already see the benefits of and have overhauled the menus to ensure they are far more appealing.”
