Sometimes, everything comes together so well that you're left a little bewildered. So good that it can seem a little unreal. Looking back at some of the restaurants (with stars) we've visited over the years, I could probably count on one hand the ones which...More

We had this booked for ages and were looking forward to it. We weren't disappointed. The lunch menu at £32 was a real bargain. With a beetroot macron and amuse bouche included, it felt more like a taster menu. The quality of food and service...More

The set lunch was amazing and staff are superb and very attentive. Loved all the extras and the Beaujolais wine was lovely and light for lunchtime. We loved it. In a class of its own.

No but it is very relaxed and you can enjoy an aperitif at your table and stay the whole night long if you want to.

Martin Wishart, an Edinburgh-born chef, has firmly established himself as one of the UK’s most highly respected chefs. Trained under such renowned chefs as Albert Roux, Michel Roux Jr, Marco Pierre White and John Burton-Race, taking a little bit of inspiration from each mentor over the time he worked with them and distilling it to create his own culinary magic. Amongst some of the many attributes they imparted to him over the years of working together, it was the importance of discipline in the kitchen, a passion for food and a deep understanding of classic French cooking techniques that have continued to be the backbone of his style. Whilst never having planned to become a chef, he started working in kitchens from the age of fifteen, fell in love with the industry and now has more than thirty years’ experience in the business. He is now an established and multi-awarded chef and restaurateur.
