Crown named Scottish Seafood Pub of the Year

STAFF at the Crown Hotel in Portpatrick are celebrating after being named Scottish Seafood Pub of the Year 2004.

The harbourside hostelry impressed judges with their menu of fine quality seafood, most of which is landed locally.

The award is recognition for the hard work of the six chefs and 13 waiting staff employed at the hotel.

And the Crown now goes head to head with the English and Welsh award winners for the title of British Seafood Pub of the Year which will be announced on 9th March. Said co-owner Craig Currie:

"You can't pay for this title - they come and grade you and you are rewarded on your own merits. Seafood is what we are good at, it's all local produce."

In his judgement, Peter Birnie, the AA's Chief Hotel and Restaurant Inspector, paid tribute to the Crown's menu. He said:

"It typically includes moules mariniere, crab salad, grilled lobster and a trio of hot seafood. The wine list is carefully chosen and there are 70 or more malt whiskies to choose from."
