our island larder

Good food depends on the quality of the ingredients. At the Foveran we work closely with local livestock farmers, fishermen and growers to select the best seasonal produce for our enviable larder.


Kirkwall Bay Shellfish supply scallops, lobsters, partans and langoustines, according to availability and thriving local fishmonger Jollys of Orkney produce excellent smoked fish from their own kiln. With rich pasture, Orkney has long been known for its dairy produce, and Grimbister Farm Cheese is a local speciality, continuing a centuries-old tradition of cheese making. One of Paul’s signature dishes uses the peaty notes of Highland Park whisky, distilled in Kirkwall, to complement the rich texture of Orkney’s finest beef fillet.

We stock a range of Orkney beverages, from Highland Park and Scapa whisky to local beers from craft producers The Orkney Brewery in Quoyloo and the family-run Highland Brewing Company based at Swannay. “The close working relationship we share with local producers and fishermen ensures the best seasonal produce is delivered to our kitchen daily.” Paul Doull, Chef owner


Paul Doull is recognised as one of Orkney’s top chefs, and his passion for fine food is shared by the rest of the kitchen team. Their philosophy is about using the elements of Orkney’s natural environment from land, soil and sea to provide a culinary experience to savour and remember – from your pre-dinner drinks in the comfortable lounge, to the following morning’s home-made breakfast.
