An established favourite offering an affordable spread of Scottish classics and seafood dishes.

Eating & Drinking Guide

The 2017 edition of The List's Eating & Drinking Guide is out now – only £5.95 (+p&p).

This reliable neighbourhood restaurant offers a seasonal spread of Scottish classics that won't empty your wallet. The focus is on a mix of meat and fish dishes plus a couple of veggie options with larger sharing platters of meat, veg or seafood, while weekends see a brunchy lunch menu come into play. With the options changing every six weeks, there’s plenty to keep the regulars coming back. The Room, like its sister outlet in the West End, fills the gap between good pub grub and higher-end dining, offering well-cooked standards at a price that makes eating here a regular treat rather than an occasional extravagance. A deliciously crispy smoked salmon Scotch egg comes with a gooey yolk, a hefty slab of pigeon breast sits on a fat disc of savoy cabbage with clapshot and red wine gravy, and a warm clootie dumpling with rum custard, pear and maple compote seals the deal. When you're full, why not stroll across to the neighbouring Teuchters Landing for a wee nightcap?
