Eating & Drinking Guide

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

Teuchters is a first-rate traditional bar, measuring out some of the best booze Scotland has to offer. Around 90 single malts and 20 blends line the shelves and are joined by a notable collection of Scottish gins, cask and keg beers, and a good selection of wines. The cosy dark wood and stone interiors draw in locals and tourists alike and friendly bar staff are happy to share their knowledge of all things whisky. Start your day with a hearty breakfast or filled roll, especially welcome if you're in early to watch some rugby (they show all the games). From noon, burgers, hot dogs, and pies are served with expertly cooked chips providing good company to a well-pulled pint. If you find yourself perching around a pillar, unable to find a seat, order from the mug menu and tuck into creamy mac and cheese, traditional haggis, stovies or generously fishy cullen skink.
