Cardwell Garden Centre serves the Gerald Butler Big Scottish Breakfast

by | May 21, 2017 | News | 0 comments

Cardwell Garden Centre were quick to get in on the act when Scots-born Hollywood star Gerard Butler was filming his new movie less than a mile away.?The centre?s Patio Restaurant re-named their plateful of sausage, bacon, egg, potato scone, tomato, mushrooms and beans – The Gerard Butler Big Scottish Breakfast.
Posters advertising the Butler Breakfast were put up and to add a bit of fun to the occasion, with staff donning Gerard Butler masks.
Butler was filming his latest movie, Keepers at the nearby Cloch Lighthouse, playing a lighthouse keeper in the movie based on the mystery of how three lighthouse keepers on The Flannan Isles, off the west coast of Lewis, in the Outer Hebrides, disappeared without trace in December 1900.

The Cloch Lighthouse, on the coast road between Gourock and Inverkip was being used for interior scenes in the film, which also stars Peter Mullan and Connor Swindells.
Film company trucks were also parked up in the yard of Cardwell Garden Centre while filming went on.
Cardwell?s Butler Breakfast stunt earned them coverage in the Glasgow Evening Times and the local Greenock Telegraph newspapers.

The centre?s retail general manager, Paul Carmichael said: ?It?s not often we get a Hollywood star filming a movie just along the road from us and since Gerard is well-known for being born in Scotland, we thought we?d name our Scottish breakfast in his honour.
?We extended an invitation to Gerard and the film crew to come along to try our breakfast, but unfortunately he didn?t make it. However, we didn?t just have one ?Gerard Butler? in our restaurant ? we had three of them!?
