An old-school wine merchants, Peter Green feels no-nonsense, friendly and traditional, with none of the in-your-face deals or rows of factory wine that big chain stores so often thrust at shoppers. With a bit of a bias towards French vin, there's nonetheless a range of worldwide wines in the spacious store, as well as a decent selection of Scottish beers and some fun spirits. Hard-to-find whiskies sit next to vodka for the local students, and there's generally the sense that if you need something, experienced and knowledgable help is at hand. Michael Romer, the owner, has been in the trade for over 40 years, so you'll have a hard time choosing the wrong bottle if he's around.
