Ian and Mark worked together at the beginnings of their careers, at Cromlix House in Scotland. Their passions for "food to table", fine wine and customer service were both well used and enhanced there. Some 27 years later they joined forces in 2010 to buy The Robert Morris Inn in Oxford MD. With Mark at the helm in the kitchen and Ian out front, its future is bright.
