At Playfair’s we take great pride in supporting local suppliers. Head Chef Duncan chooses the very best suppliers with high quality produce to ensure that this is reflected in our dishes. In addition to this, he has built great relationships with suppliers; Luvian’s will create flavours for him and Minick’s have created a burger mix specifically for Playfair’s.
