I had avoided visiting The Buttery before as I had an impression of it as being expensive, solemn and only for confirmed meat or fish eaters.
It would seem I was very wrong - we had a most enjoyable pre theatre meal there - really delicious veggie food, even with a separate veggie menu. The lemon tart was possibly the best dessert I have eaten in Scotland!
The service was friendly and it was not over-formal. The surroundings were lovely - warm with wood panelling and really nice, old fashioned cutlery and crockery. A bit like visiting an auntie who is a fabulous cook.
The place was packed at 5:15 so worth booking ahead. Not the cheapest meal ever but the pre theatre option was really excellent value.
Definitely worth a return visit.
