Restaurant Details

The owners here tout the wholesome, ethical provenance of their farm supply, showing some determination to rise above the stereotype of the ampersand subset of gastropubbery, and perhaps also to set some stiff prices. Light, greaseless batter-fried haddock and chubby chips are pretty good, and the structurally unstable rasher-and-egg sandwich—thin crispy collops of English back bacon, aligned on a long ciabatta swiped with mayo and topped with a fried egg—is worth painting your face with. The long and interesting draft beer list includes cask-conditioned ales hooked up to hand-drawn beer engines. And don't miss a chance to plow into desserts such as chocolate banoffee, a wide parfait glass lined with rum-drunk bananas and buttery graham cracker crust and filled with toffee-threaded chocolate mousse.

Bar Details

This gastropub strategically sited across from a multiplex is decked out to resemble the place your great-granda headed for after the grouse hunt. A certified cicerone just might visit your table midmeal and insist on pouring sample pairings, with detailed tasting notes—but don't turn down the chance to quaff a pint of one of the four cask-conditioned ales hooked up to hand-drawn beer engines. —Mike Sula
