Our ChefsMake an enquiry

Our chefs are selected with the same care that we take in sourcing the finest food for our menus. A combination of innovative training and hands-on experience means our chefs create succulent dishes based on an impeccable knowledge of taste and an understanding of seasonal produce.

Before taking his role as Executive Chef at the Macdonald Marine Hotel, North Berwick, John Paul McLachlan learned his trade with Gordon Ramsey and Raymond Blanc. 

Our Chef 's Apprenticeship Scheme, aimed at 16 to 19 year olds, ensures we maintain the highest standards in our hotels. Our apprentices spend time learning the skills needed to produce excellent cuisine before putting the theory into practice for our guests.

Our bar and waiting staff are as vital an ingredient to the dining experience as the food on your plate. To be a member of our team takes enthusiasm, professionalism and a commitment to excellence. Wine and spirit appreciation courses enable our staff to recommend the finest wines and beverages to complement your meal.
