Two Angus restaurants have achieved national recognition in separate awards.
Garry Watson, chef/owner of Gordon’s Restaurant with Rooms in Inverkeilor, by Arbroath, has been awarded three AA rosettes for culinary excellence for the eighth year running.
Garry is one of only a handful of chefs in the UK, and the only one in Scotland, to achieve the feat single-handed.
Meanwhile, Sinclair’s Kitchen on the outskirts of Forfar was crowned overall Scottish champion in the Eat Game Awards which recognise great culinary achievements and other contributions to the cooking and eating of game.
It also finished second in the category for best pub regularly serving game.
Eden Sinclair, 38, who runs the restaurant with his wife Lucy, 41, and brother Jordan, 31, said they were “overwhelmed” with the support they had received from the public.
