If you don't mind paying for quality locally produced food then this is a must. The bespoke menu is hand written on a daily basis and is created around the produce available on the day. Jimmy is a culinary genius who can rival any top restraunt in Glasgow. Mandy is a wonderful host and creats the most amazing puds. The... More

Joined by my son and his partner to celebrate my husbands retirement. A warm greeting from staff and we were quickly served drinks and given a menu. The table was ours for the evening so we didn't feel rushed. We all chose different things and each of us were delighted with the meal. The wine with the starter and the... More

We went out for a night of good food and wine and almost all our expectations were exceeded. The only thing I can say detracted from the whole night was the size of the place. It felt small, not quite cramped but small. Apart from that everything was great, food, service, wine, atmosphere. I would definitely go back again so... More

We have come to visit here on special occasions as it is the best restaurant we have had the pleasure of dining in, anywhere in the world. The food is absolutely top notch, the ambiance is romantic and intimate for couples, but also suitable for larger parties. It is amazing to get the mix of such excellent food in such... More

This restaurant is a must if you are in the area and is well worth the money. I would go as far as to say it is the best meal I have ever had at a restaurant. The service is great as well and the owners, who cook and prepare all the food themselves are very friendly. I cannot wait... More

We have visited the restaurant many times over the years and find the quality of the food superb. This October we celebrated our wedding anniversary with a meal there . (we normally are away for this) and Amanda and Jimmy the owners made us so welcome and once again the presentation and quality of the food was fantastic. The Scallops... More

Ostler's Close is the best restaurant in which my husband and I have ever had the pleasure to dine. Amanda and Jimmy are both fabulous cooks, passionate about using the best possible ingredients, relentlessly attentive to every detail, resulting in superb food. They are genuinely warm and friendly, non-pretentious, and good humored - we immediately felt welcomed and at home.... More

I will start with the negatives about this restaurant as there are many positives. The décor is a bit dated, the menus are hand-written and really difficult to read, but...what fantastic food. Run by a husband and wife team who clearly love what they do, the food was an absolute delight. Lots of wild mushrooms which were in season, and... More

We have visited this restaurant over the years for special occasions but popped in on the off chance tonight. The meal was brilliant as usual with freshly picked mushrooms, a special of grouse and yummy pudding. Along with little extras and a really good bottle of wine the meal set us up for the weekend. Such a relaxing atmosphere and... More
