Not a stretch of road previously known for its culinary ambition, Wishaw Main Street has quickly embraced the lively, relaxed and high-end approach of chef and proprietor Derek Mather. Open since 2008, Artisan has been confidently expanding a menu that embraces the best Scottish recipes made with local and seasonal produce. Dishes include Cullen skink, Stornoway black pudding pakora and Lanark haggis served with a peppercorn sauce. Most impressive is the collection of over 1,300 whiskies that line the walls above the tables. There’s a bottle from every imaginable corner of the land — from the Highlands and Islands to Speyside and the Lowlands. Although official closing time is 10pm every night, the restaurant occasionally closes earlier during the week.
