A visit is highly recommended to this excellent restaurant in this comfortable boutique hotel. The high-ceilinged dining room has been elegantly decorated with bright abstract prints, and overlooks the garden to the rear.
The kitchen offers a short, seasonally-changing menu, combining top local produce and modern dishes. The food offered arrives beautifully-presented.
Starters such as ' Organic Watercress Soup'; 'Roasted Hand-Dived Scallops' and 'Pressed Confit of Rabbit Terrine' set the stle.
Maybe to be followed by 'Pan-Fried Scottish Rib-Eye Steak with Skirlie Mash and Sloe Gin Jus'; 'Seared Shetland Sea Trout with Purple Potato Gnocchi and Gravadlax Dressing' and 'Herb Gnocchi and Roasted Cepes with Walnut Truffle Sauce'. Fish Pie seems to be a regular fixture on Fridays.
Perhaps finish with 'Dark Chocolate Tart with Vanilla Ice Cream'; 'Spiced Plum Tarte Tatin with Rum and Raisin Ice Cream' or their selection of Mature Cheeses, served with Quince Jelly and Oatcakes.
