You're unlikely to find this restaurant/hotel by mistake, as it is situated at one of the extremes of Western Scotland. The light airy dining room is bedecked with crisp white napery and candle-lit at night. Local produce is the name of game, and fish figures prominently. The set dinner menu is based around 5 courses.
But expect the likes of a 'Seafood Platter'; 'Warm Scallop Mousse'; 'Roast Shetland Salmon with Pesto' or ' among the starters.
Something delicious, such as 'Stilton Soufflé' might be squeezed in between the starter and main course.
'Roast Rib of Aberdeen Angus Beef with Wild Mushrooms'; 'Pan-fried Breast of Wood Pigeon on toasted Brioche'; 'Grilled Turbot with Mussels steamed over White Wine and Saffron' or perhaps 'Halibut with Mussels in White Wine and Saffron' among the mains.
Desserts, such as 'Dark-Chocolate Roulade with Strawberries and Banana Flan' come from a trolley. Cheeses are mainly Scottish and all in first-class condition.
The Public Bar offers a hot and cold menu from mid-day to 22.30.
Smart dress preferred, and no mobile phones.
