Review on The Whitehouse Restaurant
A breathtaking and awesomely remote location adds to the allure of this tiny little oasis of fresh seafood on the Morven peninsula. Set up by Jane Stuart-Smith and Sarah Jones is stands just up the hill from the Mull ferry with spectacular views out towards the island.
Everything here is local and the whole set-up runs on the principles of 'slow food' and seasonality. Lamb and beef are from a nearby farm, and vegetables and herbs are grown in the family garden next to the restaurant, but the real stars are from the local waters. Top billing goes to the superb langoustines, harvested nightly from the loch and served simply with aïoli and bitter leaves, but the piscine haul might include hand-dived scallops with nutmeg butter, baked sea bass with lemon thyme potatoes or Isle of Mull moules marinière.
Lunch brings simpler offerings including gammon rillettes with cornichons, Stornoway black pudding with Puy lentils and Mull Cheddar and chutney sandwiches with beetroot crisps. If you fancy a sweet finish, try lemon posset or almond poached pear with marshmallow meringue and bay leaf ice cream. The wine list includes plenty of organic bottles.
