My wife enjoyed the black pudding and goats cheese. I ordered the smoked seafood platter, which was all fish apart from a small bowl of smoked mussels. Next time I will order the scallops in Thai sauce.

Found this place by accident. Tucked away in the railway station in a culinary back woods but what a find. Seafood is fantastic and staff could not be more friendly.

Seems to be a marmite type of restaurant. You either love it or hate it. I'm I the latter category although I love marmite. I only wish they had some to eat. Food was bland and as previously noted cold. The rissoto needed another minute...More

Scotland, the land of castles, tartan and deep fried everything. Traversing the country from pub to pub has left a lasting impact. Now when I walk there’s a rubbing sound coming from between my thighs. Sure the haggis and pies are delicious but with a...More
