Turned up on Monday night without a booking. Great menu, great food, great choice for everyone including the kids. Grouse starter was stunning as was the Arbroath Skokie salmon starter. Great steaks. Lovely staff who were very attentive.

We had lunch in the bar. The food was great; hand formed char-grilled burger and amazing fresh fish. Everyone was so friendly, we had a great time.

Only a guess, but most restaurants would let you choose what you like from any menu in the bar, but in the restaurant, it's likely only to be the a la carte menu available, given the much more luxurious surroundings.
