Quintessential Bed and Breakfasts
The Plumed Horse

Tony Borthwick started his culinary career after an accident on his horse led to a broken neck and a year-long recovery, during which time he decided to pursue his dream.

This led to a move to London, which saw him hone his skills by dining in restaurants, buying the ingredients and trying the dish at home to achieve the same results.

Borthwick worked at a number of establishments before joining The Savoy. His reputation and expertise grew quickly, as well as a desire to develop the well-accepted techniques he came across.

Borthwick moved back to Scotland and, in 1998, opened the original Plumed Horse in the Dumfriesshire village of Crossmichael. He won his first Michelin star in 2001 and became Scottish Chef of the Year in 2005.

In 2006, the Plumed Horse was relocated to Leith, where it regained the Michelin star and won three AA rosettes, thanks to Borthwick’s ethos of 'hard work, ability and consistency'.

Borthwick's style is modern European, with techniques to match. The dishes are complex, distilling a number of widely-sourced influences and ingredients into key contrasting elements, which burst with flavour.
