Kevin Laing and Lisa Saker are the new management team at The Inn at Kippen. They are keen to bring their wealth of experience, knowledge and passion for hospitality and customer service to the Inn. They are strongly supported by their fantastic established team including Gillian, the Inn’s Assistant Manager, as well as bringing some new faces to the team. They are also super excited to be bringing back an old face in the form of Kristoff. A dynamic young chef who has a clear vision for the menu and food that he wants to serve, Kristoff gained a wealth of experience working under the talented Mark at the Inn previously. He has since left and developed his skills working in Edinburgh and now feels ready to take on the role as Head Chef.
Kevin has been in the hospitality sector for over twenty years, working in various departments, both front of house and in the kitchen, within numerous restaurants, cafes and hotels. Most recently he has set up and run The Bistro at one of Edinburgh’s most glamorous hotels, Carberry Towers. Kevin has also organised and run some of the best functions, and he is keen to make The Inn the place people want to come to celebrate their life events – Birthdays, Christenings, Weddings etc. So, if you have any forthcoming events, why not pop in & see what we can do for you with our tailor-made event packages.
Lisa has a background in the banking sector, but also has years of experience working front of house in various establishments in Edinburgh, and most recently has been running her own café serving a local community with home made food, afternoon teas & delicious home baking. These are all things that we will be looking to introduce to the Inn.
They have been overwhelmed by the support they have had, both professionally & personally, since moving to Kippen, and are looking forward to building the business back up to the successful community- orientated business that Kippen deserves, as well as an eatery for tourists visiting Kippen & the surrounding areas.
