Angus Larder

Listed in the Angus Larder – find it online or order a print copy (free + p&p).

Over more than 25 years the Watson family – Maria front of house, with Gordon and their son Garry in the kitchen – have built a reputation for their seriously good food. The intimate dining room features exposed stone, wooden beams and a wood-burning stove, with wallpaper by Timorous Beasties adding a contemporary touch. The stage is set for fine dining with white tablecloths covering the well-spaced tables, and set menus offering a selection of dishes with inventive combinations. Think ham hock, guinea fowl and prune mosaic served with pickled girolles and bacon brioche, or a roasted breast of quail with celeriac, apple and beetroot jus. A touch of adventure appears in main dishes such as fennel-crusted monkfish, spiced cous cous, mussel beignets and curry dressing, while a more traditional roast duck comes with rich cabbage cider fondant and a peppered honey jus. The cheeseboard reflects the strength of Scottish artisanal cheese, and desserts are at the same time light and intense. This is a place for serious food appreciation with everything cooked, presented and served with care.
