On Tuesday 22nd January 2019 we had the worst news. Andrew Fairlie passed away surrounded by his family, after his long battle with his brain tumour.

 

Speaking from Restaurant Andrew Fairlie, Stephen McLaughlin (Head Chef) and Dale Dewsbury (General Manager) said "We are heartbroken that Andrew has gone, and our thoughts go out to Andrew's wife, Kate  and his family. Our sadness is matched only by our tremendous pride in all his achievements, and our thankfulness that we had the opportunity to share in his life and career. We have lost our colleague, mentor and friend who was always on hand with great judgement, humour and inspiration. We will miss him terribly, but will take strength and huge pride in continuing to burn the flame of outstanding cuisine, service and culture that he established."
