Following a recent mystery inspection, Heaven Scent is delighted to retain our VisitScotland “Taste our Best” accreditation. Focusing on service as well as provenance, the quality officer found that at least 88% of the items on our menu are identifiable as Scottish, well exceeding the 40% target.
Well done to all our staff for offering their usual warm, welcoming and friendly service, and to all our many local suppliers who provide our delicious produce!
For the third year in a row, Heaven Scent has been shortlisted for a FreeFrom Eating Award, in the category of “cafés, coffee shops, tea rooms“.
We’ve worked extremely hard to improve both the number and creativity of FreeFrom and multi-allergen free dishes on our menu, so are delighted to have got through the initial stages of these important awards.
The judges are now going to visit us incognito to decide if we make it through to the finals. Wish us luck!
Heaven Scent has applied for the “FreeFrom Eating Out Awards“, the UK’s only awards dedicated to eateries who cater for customers with special dietary requirements. We’re passionate about catering for customers with all dietary requirements, and these awards are a great benchmark for good practice.
We were the only Scottish finalist in last year’s awards, and since then we’ve made further improvements to our gluten, dairy and egg free menu choices as well as the way food is sourced and prepared, so we’re feeling confident! However, in our “Cafes & Teashops” categories we’re up against coffee shops similar to us but which offer menus which are wholly gluten free.
Fingers crossed…and watch this space!

Andrew Scott has won the prestigious “Outstanding Contribution to Scottish Hospitality” category at the Scottish Hospitality & Entertainment Awards 2016, held on Sunday 8th May in Glasgow.
This category, designed to recognise an individual who has become a staple in the Scottish hospitality scene and encompasses everything hospitality needs to be, was new for 2016 and one of the most hotly contested awards of the evening.
Andrew says “I’m absolutely delighted to win. I’ve worked in hospitality all my life, in various hotels, restaurants, pubs, bistros and bars for 12 years before taking the plunge and setting up my own business in Milnathort 13 years ago. It’s hard work, but I love it and to be acknowledged in this way makes it all worthwhile”.
He adds “Scotland is renowned for its warm welcome and hospitality is ingrained in our culture. I’m both humbled and honoured for my personal contribution to be recognised in front of the country’s finest talent.”
Andrew is well known for his quirky, award-winning Heaven Scent brand with its artisan coffee shop, outside catering
business, unique events and meeting space and restaurant at Knockhill, Scotland’s premier racing circuit. 18 months ago he set up Victus Consultancy, putting his invaluable knowledge, skill and expertise to good use to help businesses in need of support, guidance and advice.
Winning this award is testament to Andrew’s passion and love of the hospitality industry, and every one here at Heaven Scent is extremely proud of this well-deserved recognition.
Well done Andrew!!!

Following a recent visit from VisitScotland’s quality assurance team, Heaven Scent is thrilled to have achieved the “Taste Our Best” award for the third successive year.
We are proud of the provenance and fantastic quality of our food, and the fact that we use as many Scottish suppliers and ingredients as possible. This is not only highly beneficial for the local economy, it enables us to minimise our food miles and maximise good sustainable and environmental practices.

The UK-wide FreeFrom Eating Out Awards were launched this year to encourage innovation and celebrate excellence in the fast-growing freefrom food service industry.
Heaven Scent was delighted to be shortlisted in the “Cafe, Coffee Shop and Tearoom” category, the only Scottish company to make it through to the final stages of this category in this national competition. We have worked very hard to create a menu with plenty of gluten and diary free options, and to train out staff about allergens and how to cater for customers with special dietary requirements. There’s plenty more we could do however, and we’re always increasing our efforts to include as much choice as possible.
