At Rissons, we are committed to sourcing our food locally wherever possible. This not only keeps our carbon footprint to a minimum, but ensures that our menus are prepared using the freshest of Scottish ingredients.
We are in the enviable position of having our own gardener, Robert Marshall, who ensures we have fresh produce from our very own garden.
Our game, chicken and unusual dry goods are purchased from Braehead Foods in Kilmarnock. Braehead are the top suppliers of game to Scottish restaurants
The Ayrshire bacon and Stornoway black pudding we use in our menus are obtained from Robertsons of Ardrossan and Charles McLeod of Stornoway respectively. We also source some of our meat locally from Overton Farm in Crossford.
Our vegetables and fruit are supplied by the Fresh Food Company who are based in Glasgow Fruit Market. We have found that they give excellent service and supply quality pruducts with emphasis on local produce where possible.
The Fish People in Glasgow supply all our fish needs, and are a company who are committed to providing sustainable and organic produce.
The cheese in our restaurant is provided by the Lymkilns Cheesemonger in Glasgow and we are fortunate to be able to provide locally brewed ales straight from Strathaven Ales.
We also use Wallaces Express and Inverarity Vaults to ensure we have an enviable range of wines and spirits.
Our list of food sources would be imcomplete if we did not mention the Strathaven free range eggs, vegetables, cream and cheese supplied by local farmers.
