' The Missing Bell ' Dining Experience
The Slow Food Movement
The Missing Bell is a celebration of good home cooking from around the world. Here is an opportunity to enjoy the conviviality that should accompany good food; conversation, comradeship, friendship and laughter, with our fellow humans.
Eating at The Missing Bell is an evening experience and is part of a Slow Food movement that originated in Italy in 1989 and is now spreading throughout Europe. So we source seasonal local produce wherever possible. From the enjoyment of canapés through four, five, six or even the eight courses of a Japanese banquet, to coffees afterwards, relaxing in good company with time to talk to each other, is at the heart of the experience.
If you want to eat quickly and rush to the cinema, then our Dining Experience evenings are not suitable for you.
If you are a family, friends, or distant relatives, that enjoy eating good food together in a convivial atmosphere, then we hope that 'The Missing Bell' is just right for you.
So come for dinner and stay for breakfast at 'The Missing Bell' at Eastward House.
Our kitchen's principle source of fresh vegetables is selected from local Island producers, providing a source of fresh-from-the-earth, seasonal food with ecologically friendly, very low ‘food miles’.
Fresh fish (including organically nurtured, sustainable salmon) and seafood are delivered from the Orkney Island of Westray, famous for its fishing traditions.
Eastward House grow their own baby daikon as well as green and red shiso leaves for authentic Japanese dishes. Shiso leaves (seasonal) are picked minutes before serving for real freshness
Shiso = (Perilla frutescens var. crispa)
We operate a salt-free kitchen.
Daily supplies of fresh eggs are supplied by the free-range chickens from Newhall Market Gardens, a short walk of just two miles away from Eastward House.
and zero carbon food miles too!
rganically reared, sustainable Salmon are provided by Pierowall Fish from Westray, the Orkney Island famous for its history of fine seafood.
