Eating & Drinking Guide

The 2018/19 edition of The List's Eating & Drinking Guide is out now – only £7.95 (+p&p).

Dining with Stuart Muir are a mix of post-shoppers at the cocktail bar as well as theatregoers and couples. A smart modern interior on the first floor of the Traverse Theatre, with tables arranged around a fake apple tree, provides a comfortable space to suit this eclectic clientele. The menu covers all bases, too, with pricier à la carte options of oysters, beef and guinea fowl as well as pre-theatre and midweek deals. Plates of food are turned out with a professional competence and at times a little drama. Venison tartare arrives with foraged sorrel, balanced on a glass globe of pine needles to conjure up flavours of the forest. Ultimately though, braised ox cheek with a celeriac and chestnut emulsion proves more pleasing. If you have to make the choice, plump for a starter of pork and hand-dived scallop rather than saving room at the end for an overly heavy flapjack dessert drizzled with honey.
