supper club




One of the joys of spending time on Rona is the wealth of fresh produce available on the island. The Isle of Rona supper club is run on request & an opportunity to sample island produce freshly prepared & cooked for you by Bill & Lorraine. The single menu will feature Rona venison and island seafood such as langoustines, crab, mackerel & pollack according to season & availability.

Rona venison is gaining a reputation for excellence thanks to the expertise of island manager Bill Cowie. A stalker for 30 years, Bill’s experience and empathy for the deer results in delicious venison that is butchered & processed on the island.

Dishes will also include, where possible, Rona’s wild food augmented by our home-grown fruit, vegetables, salad and free range eggs courtesy of Rona hens. We also source fresh seafood & produce from local fishermen & suppliers to ensure we have the finest ingredients to hand.

One evening each week up to 8 places will be available for cottage guests and boat visitors to dine with us. Menus comprise of 4 to 5 courses and include a complimentary glass of wine to start the evening or a dram of whisky to finish, from Bill’s extensive collection. Further wine is available to buy, or you are very welcome to BYOB.

Prices per head are from £30-£40 according to ingredients, additional bottles of wine may be purchased for £12.50 per bottle. We ask cottage guests to register their interest the week before arrival so we have some idea of numbers – but absolutely no obligation to attend. After arrival on Rona, we’ll let you know what evening the supper club might run if you would like to confirm a booking.

Cullen Skink & Bill’s oatcakes, Tempura herring, Potted crab, Bouillabaise
Rona venison shank & chanterelles, Rona venison steak & lobster
Rhubarb Cranachan, Bramble sorbet, Rona wild mint ice-cream & chocolate almond cake
