At the Foveran, you can enjoy the finest Orkney produce in a comfortable and modern setting with spectacular sea views overlooking historic Scapa Flow.
Food is a true flavour of our islands. Taking advantage of seasonal availability, and the abundance of life in the clean waters surrounding the islands, superb seafood features on our menu along with prime beef and lamb from Orkney's fertile and plentiful farmlands.
We work closely with local livestock farmers, fishermen and growers to select the best seasonal produce for our enviable larder ensuring we obtain the highest quality. We strive to create delicious dishes from the freshest local ingredients.
Our philosophy is about using the elements of Orkney's natural enviroment from land, soil & sea to provide a culinary experience to savour and remember.
As well as supporting local producers, we are keen to retain Orkney's culinary traditions. We bake our own bread daily including 'bere bunno' or bannock (a traditional flat bread) using stone-ground beremeal flour from the Barony Mill.
To complement the menu, we offer a wide range of carefully selected wines, liqueurs, local beers, gins and malt whiskies. These can be enjoyed at your table, or in the more relaxed setting of the lounge.
We're really proud to have been five times winner of the Orkney Food and Drink 'best evening meal' and the first 'Orkney Masterchef 2014' title.
If you are a lover of nature, from our restaurant windows you may well see pheasants, short-eared owls and hen harriers, all of which nest on Orkney's many moorlands.
In our restaurant we showcase local arts and crafts including stunning original pieces of artwork by Jeanne Bouza Rose - Artworks of the Earth and beautiful print pictures from Hoxa Tapestry Gallery. Family connections and weaving together different threads of community life are some of the many things which make Orkney so special.
We look forward to welcoming you to The Foveran.
