Britain’s most northerly mainland restaurant has been awarded the Sustainable Restaurant Association (SRA)’s Sustainable Restaurant of the Year Award 2015.

The Captain’s Galley, at Scrabster, near Caithness – which was also named Scottish Sustainable Restaurant of the Year – won the award jointly with Daylesford, the three-strong coffee shop chain in England.

Raymond Blanc, President of the Sustainable Restaurant Association, presented the award to Jim Cowie, the Captain’s Galley chef-proprietor (pictured, far right) at a gala lunch in London last week.

Runners-up in the Scottish Sustainable Restaurant of the Year category included The Bay Fish and Chips, in Stonehaven, and Cafe St Honoré in Edinburgh.

Raymond Blanc, who presented the awards to the winners, said: ‘This ceremony represents the perfect ingredients: good ethics; an understanding that food touches every part of our lives; and a desire to ensure that future generations will be able to experience from it the same pleasure as we have.

‘These awards are as important for me as Michelin Stars.’

Meanwhile, Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall was this year’s recipient of the Raymond Blanc Sustainability Hero award, for standing out as ‘the person who shows the greatest connection to seasonality, sustainability and traceability.’
