Gary Goldie takes up head chef role in Borders brewery

Former Scottish Chef of the Year Gary Goldie has taken up a new role as head chef at a new visitor centre at the Scottish Borders Brewery.

The move comes six months after he set up Gary Goldie restaurant at the Queens hotel in Oban - a project he is no longer involved with.

His new role will see him cooking at the Born In the Borders visitor centre at the Scottish Borders Brewery. The brainchild of the brewery's founder John Henderson, it will offer local food as well as brewery tours and a gift shop.

Goldie will work using the foraged and local food he has become known for. Currently the restaurant is open for lunch seven days a week and is soon set to open on Friday and Saturday evenings.

The chef said he felt the restaurant in Oban worked well and was well received by local diners, but that he had struggled to find enough time to forage along with his other responsibilities at the hotel.

Speaking about his new role he said: "I am sure it is the start of something special."
