Andy Murray’s hotel fails hygiene inspection

Andy Murray’s hotel, Cromlix House in Dunblane has failed a safety inspection after the Food Standards Agency paid the establishment a visit.

Owned by the tennis star, the hotel’s restaurant kitchen was found to have a faulty kitchen sink, identified by Stirling Council officials in July.

According to Graeme Green, manager of the Chez Roux Restaurant, the broken fixture has now been repaired and is fully compliant with food hygiene standards.

Graeme Green said: "The first inspection of our new kitchen at Chez Roux identified a minor fault with the connection of the handwash sink. We repaired this immediately and have requested a further inspection to ensure we exceed standards."

Andy Murray purchased the 15-bedroom hotel in 2013, before it underwent an extensive refurbishment and opened to the public in spring 2014. The five-star retreat was voted the best hotel in the country just days after opening.

The Chez Roux restaurant is run by chef Albert Roux, with the award-winning, Michelin-star Darin Campbell as head chef.

The Food Standards Agency (FSA) carried out its inspection on July 17 and the restaurant was given an ‘improvement required’ rating. It has been removed from a list of approved establishments until further inspection.

A FSA spokesman said: "The scheme effectively opens the door to the kitchen and/or food areas and consumers can see how well food businesses in their area have performed at their last food hygiene inspection. This will increase consumer confidence and help people make informed choices about where they eat."
