New restaurant concept for Crossbasket Castle as Michel Roux Jr takes the reins

Trocadero’s is to be the name of the new restaurant concept at Crossbasket Castle which will open in August with Michelin star chef Michel Roux Jr overseeing the restaurant and cocktail bar.

The name is a nod to the celebrated 1950s dance hall in Hamilton, South Lanarkshire, of the same name. Owners Steve and Alison Timoney, who describe Crossbasket Castle as a no-expense-spared passion project, said Trocadero’s will bring a unique offering to Scotland, with live music and entertainment every night of the week.

Steve Timoney said, “We took inspiration from Glasgow’s legendary live music scene and the enthusiasm and energy of its audiences. Scotland has a long history of excellent live music and talented performers, and we want to showcase that to allow our guests to kick up their heels and have fun whilst enjoying exceptional food in a sensational venue. Every city offers great quality restaurants but what we’re creating at Trocadero’s is truly unique.”

Alison Timoney said, “We want Trocadero’s to be somewhere our guests experience the finer things, where they can truly indulge and get lost in the nostalgia of a golden era. We have worked hard to develop this unique concept, which complements the luxury and romance of the beautiful surroundings whilst bringing a vibrant and tantalising new experience.”

Speaking on his appointment, Michel Roux Jr said, “Trocadero’s is going to be the talk of the town and the most iconic venue in Scotland. Fabulous, delicious food, great entertainment, and somewhere people will want to keep coming back to time and time again.

”Managed by Inverlochy Castle Management International (ICMI), Crossbasket Castle has a long-lasting relationship with Michel Roux Jr, a former judge on Masterchef the Professionals, where he has been overseeing the five-star kitchen at the original Crossbasket Castle hotel since 2016.
