This is a must do experience for whisky lovers and is a top notch New Town dining experience even for those who have not been converted to the joy of malt whisky (yet!). Accomplished chef James Freeman is the man at the helm of a smoothly run ship that uses as much fresh Scottish produce as possible to conjure up both creative and satisfying dishes. Starters include the likes of rare lion of venison laced with cumin, sour cherries, beetroot and buttermilk, with mains such as braised shin of beef or wild sea trout. A neat touch is that you can choose to have four, five of even six cheeses on their cheeseboard. Trying a wee dram to go with certain dishes is not obligatory, but your waiter will be more than keen to suggest what dishes go best with which malts. For a decadent treat try their multi-course tasting menus with matched whiskies. For a real treat ask if they will let you upstairs afterwards to try one of their cask strength, society exclusive whiskies in their swish whisky bar.
