Many restaurants these days talk a good foraged game. The reality is often a bowl of overpriced wilting greens as a side dish – and very much as an afterthought. Cail Bruich is genuinely different, so much so that if you ask nicely and book in advance the chef himself might even take you out foraging – on our visit we found a rich bounty of wild garlic and wild leeks right in the heart of Scotland’s largest city. It's no no gimmick either, as the sprightly flavours and ultra fresh ingredients are used to really spike up the dishes. Choose from the likes of whole crown of wood pigeon laced with spelt grain and salt baked celeriac in a game jus, or herb and parmesan gnocchi with pumpkin, artichoke and wild garlic pesto. The understated but refined dining room hits the right note too, at a restaurant that genuinely knows what it is about.
