Our Story

What's with the name?

Why Orrin? We get asked this a lot so we thought we'd share it with you. 
Orrin is the Anglicised version of Odhran in Gaelic and is generally understood to mean "pale green".

Also, within contemporary culture, Orrin has a second meaning which really resonated with us, our approach and outlook. It means a person who exceeds expectations (hence the peacock). A free spirit that knows which way the wind will blow, walks with confidence but befriends all.

We like it and hope you do too.

We create beautifully crafted dishes, seeking out the best seasonal produce, with a passion to share our love of incredible food.

Where it all started…

Orrin's Head Chef, Andy Fyfe, started his career in Glasgow under the watchful eye of the late Alan Gibb who was Executive Chef at Gleneagles Hotel until his passing in 2016. 

He soon returned to his home town of Elgin in with his family and worked as Head Chef in various local establishments, each time, building their respective reputations as destinations for  incredible food.

It was early 2021 that the life-long dream of opening a restaurant came to fruition after an introduction to his now business partner, Elaine Sutherland. Their shared vision of creating an outstanding food establishment in Moray began.
