We visited this bar for brunch. It was so good we went back the next day. You need to book or otherwise you may be disappointed. Well worth a visit.

Possibly the best place you can eat in Scotland, good people, plenty of seating and well stocked bar plus a solid ever changing menu with a good mix of healthy and gluttony. Go there now.
