Description: Scottish farmers are known the world over for their dedication to The Cause and their consistently high-standards. That’s why you’ll find that almost everything on our menu was either reared here, harvested here or was landed right here on the shores of Scotland.Our approach to cooking is typically no-nonsense too; we source the finest ingredients like 28-day hung Scotch beef and seafoods from local waters, add a little flair and influence from the Auld Alliance and simply let the food do the talking. We think you’ll love the Bo’Vine difference!

I've came to Bovine quite a few times now and felt the need to leave a review. My family were in on Sunday for my mum's birthday and we all had a fantastic night. The staff are always attentive and really friendly, I have never been disappointed with the service. The food as always was delicious, the steaks were cooked... More

My starter of French onion soup was just average. I have tasted better. The sharing dessert platter was also disappointing. The only nice things on it were the creme brulee and rice pudding. Everything else was quite tasteless; including the sorbet, which just tasted like a lump of ice. However, the steak stole the show. My fillet steak was fabulous,... More

The food in this restaurant was truly delightful. Wonderful selection of fish, meat and poultry. Excellent presentation and perfect quantities. Each course was enjoyable. The pricing was reasonable given hither quality of food and I would highly recommend this restaurant.

Both of the starters that we had were to en extent tasteless. There was one strong flavour which overpowered the compliment of the main dish. The main course was as to be expected, very good steak! The cheese board was again a bit of a let down, very small portion in comparison to other local restaurants. Over all the food... More

Starters were a tasty mackerel fillet which was full and flavoursome and goats cheese mousse, again a quality and tasty dish. Both mains were the superbly tender sirloin steaks which were perfectly char grilled and served with... More

Worse meal I've had in at least a decade. Non-traditonal French Onion soup was greasy, onions weren't caramelized and not a gram of cheese to be found. The onion rings I ordered were so greasy that after attempting soak up some of the grease with two paper napkins they slipped through my fingers trying to put them back in their... More

We went here fully expecting to choose the chateaubriand but we were offered the market menu which was really good value and chose this instead! We both had the black pudding starter and sirloin steak and finished off with the cheese plate! Wow! The food was superb and the waiting staff were all lovely and very eager to please without...
