Isle of Mull Hotel & Spa, part of Crerar Hotels has announced the return of renowned chef, Noel Escobal.

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, having graduated in hotel and restaurant management and starting his career in a five-star hotel in Manila before moving to the prestigious Royal Mirage Hotel in Dubai. He has since worked in many hotels across the UK such as 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.

The Mull restaurant currently has an AA Rosette thanks to the recognition of its commitment to using fresh, seasonal and local produce and championing the brand’s commitment to quality through its ‘field to fork’ initiative.

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 playing our part in providing guests with the authentic Scottish hospitality 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. I am delighted to be able to welcome Noel and his wife Remi back into the Crerar Hotels family.”
