The blackboard of sausages and fresh fish is a good place to start at this gastropub. (The menu's appealing too.)

Hot whole wheat rolls are astoundingly good.

Generous Scottish smoked salmon with traditional sides: chopped boiled egg, capers, onion, a goood squeeze of lemon. Simple and delicious.

A ring of madeira sauce circles a moist, and just slightly flaky halibut, skin side crisp, resting on a mountain of mashed potatoes. The fish is cooked with care and takes on the sweet madeira sauce in an endearing sort of way.

A very satisfying and generally robust selection of cheeses from the UK for dessert.

Charming wooden beams, bright spacious dining room. A pleasure to dine in. With a glass of wine, perhaps around £30 for an exceedingly comfortable dinner.
