This unique complex of eateries and drinking outlets should have something for everyone. Venues have been given titles such as Courtyard, Brasserie, Big Pub, Wee Pub, Corner Bar - as well as their top of the bill Restaurant 'Dining Room'. You can meet friends (as long as you're not waiting in different places) have a good meal in the Brasserie or more elaborate one in the Dining Room - example dishes of which are listed below.
The menu specialises in the best Scottish produce, and many traditional dishes are listed - but in no way does it seem dated, as there are modern twists at every turn.
Starters such as 'Venison or Vegetarian Haggis, Mashed Potatoes, Carrot Crisps & Turnip Cream'; 'Brandade of Salt Ling in Batter with Cauliflower Cream Parsnip, Apple Velouté & Cinnamon Apple Fritter'; 'Braised Perthshire Pig's Cheek, Wild Mushroom Sauce & Truffled Potato Omelette' and 'Pan-Fried Scallops on a Potato Rosti, Stewed Garlic & Chambery Coral Sauce' set the style.
Perhaps to be followed by 'Free-Range Perthshire Pork Fillet stuffed with Prunes & Haddies, Garlic Crushed Potatoes, Lemon & Vermouth Carrots & Apple Fritters'; 'Steak & Kidney Pudding with Candied Root Vegetables'; 'Perthshire Pigeon, Roasted in Bacon, Wild Mushroom Sauce, Rich Game Sauce & Risotto' and 'Orkney Organic Salmon, Lime & Vanilla Mash, Red Pepper & Chambery Sauce & Salmon Beignet'.
If you still have room, you might be tempted by 'Caledonian Oatmeal Ice Cream with Fruit Compote'; 'Strawberry Brioche with Basil Ice Cream'; 'Peach & Frangelico Custard Tart with a Snow Egg of Peaches & Hazelnuts' or their selection of Scottish farmhouse cheeses.
The bars are justifiably proud of their selection of malts.
