One of Scotland's most revered young chefs said he received a "big shock" after his Edinburgh restaurant claimed a prestigious award at the hospitality industry's equivalent to the Oscars.

Dominic Jack, tipped to win a Michelin star in the near future, said the "hard work" of his team earned Castle Terrace Restaurant recognition by the annual Caterer and Hotelkeeper Awards.

The 35-year-old chef and patron of the eatery, a close friend and former colleague of Michelin-starred chef Tom Kitchin, only opened the establishment less than a year ago, but it has already won widespread acclaim, helping to earn it the Newcomer prize at "The Cateys".
