In his own words
I’m a self-taught cook, watercolour artist, and architect. I enjoy nothing better than sharing good food and wine with friends.
After I won the BBC’s ‘Masterchef’, my wife (Susan) and I first thought of setting up our small restaurant. We undertook some research and discovered that our friends and colleagues shared the same thoughts. It took little encouragement from them to fulfil our dream and in 1994 we decided to practice what we preach and the ‘Water Tower’ Restaurant was born.
A restaurant that is not a restaurant! It is a place where a group of friends, family or business can meet, eat, drink and enjoy good company in an unpretentious setting with a feel of home.
Cooking is not only a passion to me it is a lifestyle, hobby and when combined with painting it is my livelihood
Gerry Goldwyre in ‘Scotland on Sunday’.
Very high standards for innovative cooking that brims with flavour. The food style is eclectic, and reflects 25 years of International travel.
Whereever quality and availability permit we use both local and organic produce.
Our restaurant is not conventional. We only have one table and it can sit up to a maximum of 12 people. Our gazebo can seat larger numbers and we would be happy to discuss this with you
Susan and I travel extensively each year, searching out new cooking methods styles and experiences of food wherever we go. We have drawn on this experience from Sydney to Santa Fe and Scotland to Seychelles including major Internationally renowned capitals for culinary excellence in Europe and The Far and Middle East, North America and sub continental India.
These influences and ideas are incorporated into our menus at the restaurant. Menus, in conjunction with client input, are tailored, to match expectations.
We also pride ourselves in the quality of our staff, without which we would never have achieved our Investors in People award.
