Tennis star Andy Murray's Perthshire hotel, Cromlix House, has blamed a "minor fault" on the failure of its Chez Roux restaurant to pass a food hygiene inspection.
The Dunblane restaurant, which is fronted by Albert Roux and run by head chef Darin Campbell, was told it needed to make improvements before it was approved by the Food Standards Agency. But the hotel has insisted that the problems, which stemmed from a minor problem with a handwash sink, have been fixed.
The 15-bed venue's restaurant was inspected in July by Stirling Council and issued with an improvement rating, according to the Scottish Daily Record.
Graeme Green, the hotel's general manager, said: "The first inspection identified a minor fault with the connection of the handwash sink. We repaired this immediately and have requested a further inspection."
The £1.8m Cromlix House opened in April this year, and was named Scotland's Hotel of the Year just 27 days after it opened, at the 2014 Scottish Hotel Awards.
