Welcoming The Gannet and Erpingham House to our Scottish Marketplace!
We are over the moon to confirm that Glasgow institution The Gannet and vegan restaurant Erpingham House will both be taking key food stalls at Bonnie & Wild’s Scottish Marketplace!
They’ll be joining sourdough pizza specialists East Pizza, artisanal gelateria Joelato, and the seafood-focused Creel Caught by Gary Maclean - the BBC Masterchef winner's first official venture!
In the next few weeks we’ll be announcing the final three restaurants taking a stall in our Food Hall as well as details of the retailers who will also be coming into the Scottish Marketplace. Combined, Bonnie & Wild will be an unrivalled food offering showing off the very best of Scottish food and drink.
The Gannet is one of Glasgow’s best-loved restaurants. Famed for their commitment to Scottish fine dining, founders Peter McKenna and Ivan Stein are passionate about sourcing the best seasonal ingredients from local and small suppliers, from foragers to farmers to artisanal producers. Winner of multiple accolades, The Gannet won Scottish Licensed Trade News’ coveted Fine Dining Restaurant of the Year, and is holder of 3 AA Rosettes and a Michelin Plate.
Upmarket vegan restaurant Erpingham House comes to Scotland for the first time after establishing itself in Norwich and expanding to Brighton. Alongside founder Loui Blake, Erpingham House also includes Russell Martin and Robert Snodgrass as key shareholders. Both Martin and Snodgrass were capped for Scotland during their football career.
Ms Greenacre said guests to Bonnie & Wild could expect to see plant-based takes on old classics, such as their version of fish and chips, but she said they would be expanding the menu to take in locally available produce.
Bonnie & Wild’s Kate Russell added: “We’re all getting excited about opening, and showing off our fantastic Food Hall to an eager public. I think people will be blown away by the range of food options available to them.”
Ms Russell said that guests to Bonnie & Wild would be able to order food from any of the food stalls and have their order delivered to their table.
She said: “It’s one of the key concepts for our Food Hall. So with a party of any size, each individual can order all together but off different menus. And as they wait they can peruse the retailers, including a butcher, fishmonger and craft bottle shop. Or they can explore the venue and see the wall space that’s been given over to stunning images of Scotland through a partnership with the Scottish Landscape Photographer of the Year Awards, and which allows guests to order a print with proceeds going to charity.”
