The Ducks Inn
From fish and chips in the bar, to luxurious tasting menus, this wee hotel/bar/restaurant has a lot going on pretty Aberlady.
This review is taken from the current (2016) edition.
This restaurant with rooms at Aberlady on East Lothian’s golf coast sets out its stall on various fronts. For locals, it’s a daytime coffee shop, while those enjoying a day out from the city might look to the fine-dining restaurant, or take in an informal lunch or supper after a bracing walk on the beach. The bar menu nods to fine dining with dishes such as lobster tortellini along with ever-popular burgers and fish and chips. Numerous malts and brandies and an impressive wine list (there’s a bottle or two on the three-figure end of the scale) introduce the more up-scale mood of the à la carte, while the five-course tasting menu gives chef Michael Mozdzen full play with the likes of foie gras, quail eggs, halibut and venison.
Honouring Scotland's fruitful culinary heritage with a menu filled with rich offerings, Ducks Restaurant offers a cosy hideaway. Sourcing the finest produce from East Lothian, the chef crafts a high-end selection, including a succulent venison burger with quail eggs, or fresh monkfish with potato crush and foraged wild greens.
