Managing Director of The Lodge on Loch Goil Iain Hopkins was understandably surprised and delighted, saying, “Our hugely talented kitchen team, including head chef Daniel Holleren, have worked tirelessly over the last few months, so to achieve these results so quickly is a testament to their talent and commitment”. He also added, “We could not have done this without the support of our suppliers, providers and guests, so I would like to say a massive thank you to everyone for their support and belief which will help us to keep striving to improve in the future.”
