Here at Bute Kitchen we are as passionate about food and drink as we are about our home at Mount Stuart.
On the island of Bute we are surrounded by fabulous producers and suppliers and we are proud to include fresh, local and Scottish ingredients on our kitchen menu. Our coffee is from Bute-based Coffee Conscience and our milk, cream and eggs are from McAlister’s Dairy. We are proud to showcase meats from Macqueens, smoked fish from Ritchie’s and ice cream from Zavaronis – all based within a few short miles of Mount Stuart. And where we can’t get the ingredients here, our friends at Caledonian MacBrayne ferry over smoked meats from Rannoch Smokery, cheese from Cows and Co, Mackies Crisps and Stoats porridge bars to name only a few.
The Bute Kitchen team bakes and cooks ‘from scratch’ and our philosophy is to take great ingredients and create hearty soups, fresh sandwiches and salads, hot ‘Bute Bakes’ and irresistible scones and cakes.
