Awarded 1 AA Rosette 2015/2016
AA Rosette Scheme
Playfair’s Restaurant and Steakhouse was awarded with a prestigious AA Rosette in early 2015 which was maintained in 2016 when we had our second inspection. Rosettes are awarded to the best restaurants serving food prepared with care, understanding and skill, using good quality ingredients. These restaurants will be achieving standards that stand out in their local area. Of all the restaurants across the UK, approximately 10% are of a standard which is worthy of one Rosette and above.

Food Awards Scotland
If you haven’t come across The Food Awards Scotland before, then the best way to describe it is like the Oscars of the Scottish food industry. It’s an award ceremony that recognises and celebrates true talent throughout the sector, with categories for everyone from restaurateurs and café owners to suppliers and takeaways.
Both Duncan and Rachel, as well as the whole team at Playfair's were thrilled to receive this award as we were up against some strong competition!
Taste Our Best Award
Visit Scotland Quality Assurance Scheme
For the past 2 years (2015/2016) we succeeded in achieving a Visit Scotland, Taste our Best Award. This Quality Assurance Scheme seeks to identify and highlight restaurants that provide guests with quality ingredients from Scotland. These restaurants strive for sustainability, sourcing food locally to ensure that they are optimally fresh, and at least 40% of the menu is Scottish produce. This gives us an advantage over other restaurants, as we know where our ingredients come from, whether that is from a certain location in Scotland, or from a well-known and trusted local supplier.
