Nick Nairn’s new Bridge of Allan restaurant announces opening date two years after devasting fire
Scottish chef, writer and broadcaster Nick Nairn, together with his wife Julia, will open a brand-new restaurant, Nairn’s, in Bridge of Allan, Stirlingshire on 14 July 2023.
Following a devasting fire in 2021, Nick and Julia have completely renovated the space, which was once occupied by Nick’s on Henderson Street.
The new restaurant will have an outdoor terrace on the bustling high street. The menu will include a range of snacks, small and big plates plus sharing dishes for lunch and dinner. The daily changing menu will include the likes of monkfish cheek scampi with tartare sauce; venison agnolotti, leek puree and game sauce; roasted cauliflower, with harissa, yoghurt and dukkha crumb and tandoori spiced monkfish fillet with Indian mussel broth and Nick’s garden greens.
Nick and Julia Nairn said:
“It’s been a long journey back to Bridge of Allan and we’re truly excited to return to our hometown. The fire at this site was truly devastating but it has given us the opportunity to think really hard about what we wanted to create at this site. Nairn’s is a beautiful space and we’re delighted to be able to use it to showcase the best local producers on this thriving independent high street. We really can’t wait to welcome everyone in July and once again be a part of this wonderful town.”
