Hello and Welcome to Michael Neave Kitchen And Whisky Bar
I am Michael Neave a young Scottish chef who has been fortunate to work with and be trained by hugely passionate, talented chefs and a few grumpy ones, all of whom have encouraged me to explore the best of Scotland’s Larder.
This restaurant, my first, is my opportunity to put into action the many influences and ideas that I have had. Our Scottish produce, quite rightly displayed on the menus of many of Europe’s finest restaurants, will naturally feature heavily in my cooking.
I have met the growers, the farmers, the fishermen and I appreciate I am only a part of this endeavour to get the food to your plate.
It is my name above the door (aagh !) but I won’t be doing this on my own….my colleagues who have given me so much of their time and knowledge and the support of and close relationship with my suppliers.
Above all I want my restaurant to be a happy and all encompassing experience, vegetarians and dietary requirements will not be an afterthought.
No restaurant in Scotland would be complete without a whisky bar so that is going to play a big part, but also featuring will be the many interesting gins and estate rums and stunningly interesting beers not forgetting a fabulous wine and champagne collection and as weather permits the opening of our champagne terrace.
Cooking is a journey, I hope you will join me for that journey!

Malt of the Month
A’Bunadh is the Gaelic word for ‘the origin’ and this Aberlour expression hints towards the whisky-makers of old times when whisky was bottled at cask strength with no addition of water or going through the chill-filtering process. The nose is quite rich and full with a distinct presence of Sherry, nuts, ripe apples and a slight hint of smoke. On the palate it feels full-bodied, intensely sherried with more apple flavors coming through. additionally hints of ginger and cocoa are present. The finish is long and very warming reminiscent of honey, spices, light peat and chocolate.
