The Chippy Doon The Lane
This review is taken from the 2011 edition.
Whether the lane in question exudes shabby charm or is plain old shabby, the presentation inside this welcoming chippy 'doon' it is undeniably stylish. Attention is paid to the smallest details, from the lemon wedge garnish and paper tub of home-made tartare sauce to the cardboard box in which all meals come, even if you're eating in at one of the sturdy wooden tables. The overall impression is a little more wholesome than the usual chipper, backed up by the kitchen's buying policy of Scottish and sustainable produce. The menu offers the traditional singles and suppers plus monkfish tail, lemon sole and wholetail scampi. Healthier options are there too, and smoked haddock fish-cakes come with chilli sauce and salad.
