The Shore tries to create that slightly off centre upmarket atmosphere, its open and well decorated, plenty of wood and art of an oblique nature. The restaurant was quiet and owing to quite a large function and a busy bar the staff we found a little busy elsewhere and hurried to be elsewhere when serving. The fayre is good traditional dishes with that little twist to make them unique enough to warrant a fancy name and sometimes that means it ends up all presentation and no eating but it was nice to be full at the end of a meal, so down to taste, the cheff done good. Stickey toffee puding is second only to Rissons in Strathaven, it ensured a happy ending to the meal.
So, yes, even with a bit more noise than you would like, it was a fantastic meal, relaxing and value for money on par with any other aspiring upmarket restaurant, priced low enough to entice you in and high enough to select the right clientele.
As before, we chose The Shore on recomendation and we would go back again, would give it a 4.5 if I could...
