Visited The Kitchin as an early Xmas present to ourselves. Went for the 7 course Surprise Tasting Menu and wine pairing. The "surprise" being that you don't know what you are getting until it arrives at your table. You do get a map of Scotland...More

lovely dining room and bar area, we had the five course tasting menu that ends up being about 10 courses with apetisers and extra courses added, not cheap at £75/£85 p/p but well worth it, knowledgeable staff, interesting wine list, would return

Having enjoyed two 5* experiences at castle terrace I was expecting something special. Restaurant is lovely, food OK and staff seem to try hard(ish). Atmosphere not much. To have a lump of butter (easily dropped - have to be there) and left for 1 1/2...More
