Hutchesons's has received Visit Scotland's Taste Our Best quality assurance scheme award which recognises businesses that are passionate about providing a quality dining experience. We're very proud to be recognised for our committment to sourcing the best Scottish food and drink for our customers.
At Hutchesons we work hard with all of our suppliers to ensure the quality, provenance and traceability of all the ingredients we use.
Here's some information about our dining experience and why we were awarded the Taste Our Best award.
We’re members of the Scotch Beef Club and only serve the finest dry-aged Scotch beef and lamb. Our butchers are John Gilmours and Cairnhill Farm - four-generation farmers in Ayrshire, who provide us with grass fed, dry-aged beef from Limousin and Black Angus cattle. For our signature cuts we have our own dry-aging room at Cairnhill Farm where our beef is hung up to a period of 45 days ensuring a consistently high-end product. Poultry is free range and supplied from Scottish butchers, Campbells prime meats.
McCallums of Troon is our wonderful seafood and shellfish supplier, hand-picking and delivering the freshest catch from the west coast of Scotland and fish markets in Shetland, landed from boats fishing in the North Sea and Atlantic Ocean.
Our Scottish cheeses are delivered from Glasgow cheesemonger, George Mewes. Where possible our fruit, vegetables, dairy and eggs are from Scotland and supplied by Direct Foods who source the freshest in-season produce.
Coffee is fairtrade from Italian Roma in Glasgow, while our tea selection is from Edinburgh-based Eteaket. Ice-cream is supplied from award-winning manufacturers Chocolate Box in Lanark.
Complementing our larder, we have exclusive partnership with George Grant of award-winning Glenfarclas Scotch whisky – sixth generation family distillers based in Speyside, with Hutchesons being the ambassador for Glenfarclas whisky in Glasgow.
