The jewel in the G1 Group’s crown, the Corinthian Club has been polished up until it sparkles since being rescued from disuse in 1999. Housed in a truly spectacular 19th-century former bank and courthouse, the complex is home to a warren of bars and function rooms, a casino and – in the main room beneath a stunning domed ceiling and mesmerisingly detailed ornate cornicing – Teller’s Brasserie. Booths and banquettes hollow out little pockets of intimacy in the vastness of the room (so vast it has two bars). The food here – a mixture of typical upscale Scottish cuisine, particularly fish, with a few cosmopolitan flourishes – is several notches above G1’s usual offerings. Cullen skink is a simple classic well done – creamy and packed with flavour. Chargrilled salmon steak smartly served on a large slate flakes pleasingly, offset enjoyably, if a little inelegantly, with crispy hand-cut chips. Strawberry and chantilly cream mille-feuille with strawberry sorbet and crème Anglaise piles on the sweetness. It’s worth a visit to the Corinthian Club brasserie just for the setting alone, but the food merits it too.

  • High point: You could sit and gaze at that ceiling all day long
  • Low point: Over-sweet cocktails should come with a toothbrush
  • Average price: £13.95 (exc Sat); £20 (dinner)
