An owner, chef and waiter in one person. Amazing Scottish dining experience in a cozy interior. We've visited it on the New Year's Day and won't forget about it. Try Cullen Skink soup and salmon. ;) Everything's fresh, you won't go wrong.

Went in with the wife for lunch, waited to be seated. A gentleman eventually came and said he wasn't doing any lunches just now as he was stowed out. There was three tables with two people at each. So we left and went else where.
