An Interview with Pulteney Centre's New Chef.

Pulteney Centre will bring a new high quality and friendly restaurant/bistro to Wick which will be perfect for a hearty
breakfast, a quick snack at lunch time or a more substantial meal towards dinner.

Able to seat approximately 50 people, the restaurant/bistro will be open to everyone.

Local chef Donald "Dillan" Munro was recently appointed to run the kitchen and he has big plans for what the restaurant/bistro will provide. "I plan on serving lots of different meals which everyone should enjoy but also looking towards good home baking with some special meals each day such as pasta dishes,"

Dillan commented. "I'm aiming to use as much local produce as possible to really give it a fresh, Caithness taste.
"I'm currently working on the menu and adding in some extra dishes each day to keep what people can order

Dillan has been a chef for 12 years and worked in Wick restaurants MacKays Hotel and the Portland Arms as well as working further afield in Ulbster Arms Hotel, Halkirk and Three Chimneys in Skye. He is looking forward to the possibilities working in Pulteney Centre's restaurant/bistro will bring and is sure people will enjoy the food.

"With freshly home cooked meals and good, friendly service from staff I hope people will see the value they
are getting and keep coming back."

The restaurant/bistro, situated on the ground floor, will be ideal for families as well due to the nearby children's soft play which has a viewing window where parents can keep a close eye on their children as they play with friends and childcare staff.

The new Pulteney Centre in Wick opens on 23 January 2012.
