Scottish Chef Mark Donald arrived at The Glenturret Lalique Restaurant in 2021, and the first Michelin star was awarded just seven months later. It was the first restaurant inside a distillery to achieve Michelin recognition. Other awards and recognition followed for Mark and his team, and now, with two Michelin stars, they join a small and celebrated selection of establishments in the UK and Ireland.

The Glenturret Lalique Restaurant tells a story of the land and its surroundings. Mark captures the essence of the distillery in his menus with nods to the distillation process cleverly woven into his cuisine. Located in Crieff, at the foothills of the Scottish Highlands, Mark and his team enjoy the benefits of Scotland’s larder on their doorstep, working directly with artisanal growers, producers, breeders and fishers, often foraging themselves.

Alongside skill and expertise, there is a clever playfulness in Chef Mark Donald’s dishes, harking back to his Glasgow roots. A decadent ‘tattie scone’ sits alongside lobster served with a paper-thin pastry Bisque-it. ‘Buckfastics’ have also made an appearance. The 26-seated restaurant is open for dinner from Wednesday to Saturday. The kitchen also serves an A La Carte lunch menu on the same days at the Lalique Bar.
