This family-run restaurant with rooms offers a warm welcome, comfortable en-suite rooms and superb local produce prepared and presented by chef/owner Paul Doull and team.
We aim to deliver our usual standard of welcome and provide a warm, friendly service despite the Covid-19 restrictions. We hope you'll feel safe and comfortable and enjoy your time with us.
We close a little earlier now so service is from 6pm-8.00pm with the restaurant closed by 10.00pm each evening. Please phone or email to book a table.
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 (closed currently due to Covid restrictions).
We're really proud to have been four 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 tapestries created by Leila Thomson, our cousin from Hoxa in South Ronaldsay, which adorns the restaurant walls alongside her daughter Johan's photography. 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.
The Doull Family
