Popular Island Head Chef returns to Isle of Mull Hotel & Spa

Chef Noel Escobal has returned to the Isle of Mull Hotel & Spa’s award-winning 4-star Òran na Mara Bistro. Both Noel and his wife Remi worked at the Crerar Hotels’ property for several years before launching their own restaurant, Pennygate in Craignure Bay.

Noel will lead the kitchen team whilst Remi will take on the role of Food & Beverage Supervisor. Noel brings with him a wealth of experience, working at a five-star hotel in Manila, the Royal Mirage Hotel in Dubai, and The Ritz London. With a qualification in silver service and fine dining, Remi also has many years of experience in both hotels and restaurants across the globe including the five-star The Metropolitan Hotel in Dubai.

Noel said, “Both Remi and I are incredibly excited to be returning to Isle of Mull Hotel & Spa, we have great memories from our time here previously.

“The time was right to make the move and we look forward to getting settled back in and play our part in providing guests with the authentic Scottish hospitality it is known for.

“I am also looking forward to taking advantage of the local produce from the island as well as bringing new flavours from my previous experiences around the world.”

Chris Wayne-Wills, CEO of Crerar Hotels, said, “Noel is very well known and respected within the community and the industry, he will be once again a great asset to the hotel. “Thanks to the hotel’s superb location, Noel and his team will continue to champion the use of local produce which is right on our doorstep and create exquisite new menus fuelled by local ingredients reflecting the seasons.”
