Open-hearted neighbourhood brasserie-style restaurant, celebrating seasonal Scottish produce in a classy, unassuming and highly skilled way.

Eating & Drinking Guide

The 2019/20 edition of The List's Eating & Drinking Guide is out now – only £5.95 (+p&p).

If there’s an argument to be made that the absence of restaurants in and around the Broomhill locale somehow grants Wee Lochan a captive audience in the area, this is undone by the fact this is a very well-run establishment, underpinned by some considered, top-quality cooking. A bijou dining space, brimming with framed prints from local artists, is reflective of its neighbourhood, café-esque feel that sets the tone for a comfortable dining environment. The food is suggestive of a kitchen brigade well versed in some brasserie classics – an ever-present Cullen skink, a superb sirloin roast with goose fats, chicken and black pudding stuffing – all of which are big sellers on the highly popular Sunday lunch menu. This isn’t the defining point of the kitchen, however, which demonstrates its range in a cooked-to-order Mull cheddar soufflé, all silky and indulgent, while wild game duos (particularly venison) are the jewels in the à la carte offerings. All the co-ordinates of Wee Lochan, a warm welcome, charming service and food that champions Scottish produce in a non-flashy yet confident manner demonstrates exactly why its patrons are so happy to be captivated by this impressive neighbourhood restaurant.
