Eating & Drinking Guide

The 2018 edition of The List's Eating & Drinking Guide is out now – only £7.95 (+p&p).

Rogano inspires loyalty in both staff and customers – its generous banquette seating, original 1930s ocean-liner décor and black and white clad waiters transport diners to another era in a relaxed and cheerful way. A regular dining clientele means that the table d’hote lunchtime menu changes on a weekly basis at a price unchanged since assistant manager Martin Brannan arrived 17 years ago. Chef Gordon Provan’s culinary skills are evident in generous à la carte starters such as pan-seared West Coast scallops with a silky parsnip purée, ham hough bonbons, crispy capers, truffle oil and pea shoots – a combination which both surprises and delights in its mix of textures and mellow flavours. On the tasting menu, instead of the ubiquitous bland salmon, the delicately flavoured pan-fried sea trout is served on a mound of crushed crab-infused potatoes with a topping of squid rings and a deeply flavoured smoked mussel, clam and pancetta cream with the spinach as a green and crunchy surprise.
