This is a really popular spot and it took us three goes before we were able to book a table, however when we did it proved worth the wait.
We got a ringside seat by the kitchen which was fascinating and educational, we were able to see some dishes before we ordered. I started with a half of Forgan's Ale, it was superb, the choice was that or on elf Deuchars IPA or Eden Brewery Clock Ale. The staff were brilliant, particularly Ross and Geneveve, I had a starter, crispy haggis balls with tatties, neeps and Scottish whiskey gravy, just brilliant.
Our mains were equally as good, the duck shepherds pie (presumably a duckherd herds ducks?) was excellent and will be eaten again if it's still on the menu. The crispy skin chicken with neeps, mash and thyme gravy was really simple and exquisitely prepared. Our only criticism was of the bean burger; it was very good though a little dry, it could do with maybe an onion relish or dressed salad to compliment it.
By this point we were pretty full so shared a local ice cream. It was all washed down by a bottle of very decent Sauvignon Blanc.
The bill was pretty reasonable too, we will be back.
