In the lead up to these prestigious awards, Gillian McKenzie Editor at the SLTN wrote;
'In what has been a particularly tough year for the licensed trade, in which it has not only been hammered by huge rateable value hikes but faced with the ongoing uncertainty surrounding Brexit, business owners, operators and front and back of house staff have once again demonstrated the passion, creativity, resilience and true entrepreneurial spirit that make the Scottish hospitality industry a cut above.
It (the awards) will give operators and staff from pubs, clubs, hotels and restaurants across the country, who work so hard to earn Scottish hospitality its world class credentials, the moment in the spotlight they so deserve.'
On the basis of this, we are utterly thrilled to be awarded the SLTN Best Fine Dining Restaurant in Scotland 2017.
'We are delighted to be once again thanking Strathmore Spring Water, the sponsor for SLTN Fine Dining Restaurant of the Year 2017. We are astounded to win this award for the fourth time and third consecutive year! Myself and the whole team at Le Chardon d'Or have worked hard to maintain of our high standard of food and service, while adapting to the needs of our valued guests. Such a prestigious award and we are very humbled and proud to win' - Brian Maule
