This place is located opposite the river. The staff were friendly and the service prompt. The food was delicious. It was beautifully presented and featured Scottish produce. The lamb was perfectly cooked and the Cranachan desert a highlight.

If I remember correctly it was between £18-£23, not cheap but worth it in my opinion. The food is very nice and the staff are helpful and friendly.
