Tucked away behind the concert hall and a few metres along from the Fair Maid's house of Sir Walter Scott fame, North Port Restaurant is a cosy dining space with a hint of nostalgia befitting a building of 18th-century vintage. Photos of old Perth adorn the walls, and dark wood panelling makes for an intimate atmosphere, but while there is a sprinkling of heather and thistles around the room, there's not a scrap of tartan in sight: it's not that kind of Scottish restaurant. You won't find haggis-stuffed chicken on the menu here, but rather an interesting and regularly changing selection of seasonal fare. For example, a starter of salt-baked beetroot with goat's curd cheese and pea shoots followed by hake with a hearty chickpea, chorizo and coriander stew, or pigeon breast served with a warm salad of Jersey royals and twice-smoked bacon. The elegant presentation and welcoming atmosphere explain why so many of the clientele appear to be regulars here.
