My mother and I stayed at the guesthouse next door, and wandered over to Aaron Lodge for dinner. The host (Ted) seated us in the lounge and asked us what we would like to drink. I ordered a White Zinfendel, but Ted thought I'd rather have red wine. (No, you don't want that! You want this!) He was so friendly and entertaining, we were really enjoying ourselves. He showed us the menu and asked what we would like for our starters. (Menu was one price, came with starter, meal, and dessert.) I told him that I didn't really want a starter, but he told me that I did, and ordered me the Haggis.
Now, I've always wanted to go to Scotland, but I swore that I would never eat Haggis. When Ted brought it to me, he was so happy with himself that I couldn't deny him. I had a few bites to show that I could be a good sport. (It was fine, but not something that will become a part of my diet.)
I ordered the steak for dinner, which was very thin. I expect that's the norm in the UK, not like in the US where steak is very thick. The flavor was very good, as were the sides. I had the apple pie for dessert and it was excellent. Oh, and by the way, Ted eventually brought me my white zinfendel.
The total was 50 pounds for the two of us, which was probably the most we spent on any meal during our trip. But as we got "dinner and a show," it was worth every penny.
When dinner was over, we had not finished the bottle of red wine, so he sent us "home" (next door) with our glasses and the rest of the bottle.
He was such a character and we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. He acted like we were old friends and truly wanted us to have a great time while we were in Edinburgh. It's too bad that we did not stay at the B&B as well.
