“Pig on a Plate rocks!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 19, 2013

Six of us booked in for an early start at 6pm, as we wanted to go straight from work. Great service, friendly staff. Really good selection on menu thought it was too good to be true, but each of us were very satisfied with our choices. I had the scallop on black pudding with pea puree for starter (really nicely presented, and tasted delicious), followed by pig on a plate. You can guess by the title of my review what my thoughts were on this culinary delight. Best food I have ever tasted! Price was really good too - keep those prices and the same standard of food turning out and your footfall will double - best book your Christmas "do" now folks!

If your looking for a negative, I would say that the dessert choice could have been a little more inspiring, but I don't do puddings, so didn't bother me in the slightest! Chairs were a bit cumbersome, and difficult to pull in and push out and if you dare to close to have a freshen up on the decor it will only improve on the gastronomic ambience!

My one regret? I forgot to take photos :(

If you haven't tried it, you just don't know what you are missing! :)

“VG FOOD AT AN EXCELLENT PRICE”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 30, 2013

We ate from the Express Lunch menu which bears a striking resemblance to the standard menu but offers 2 courses for £10 and 3 courses for a tad more.

The quality was not quite excellent (the salad that came with the grilled goat cheese starter was tired and the lamb in the curry had too much fat) but was very good nonetheless, and the large portions mean this is belting value for money. The a la carte menu looks to be decent value too, and they don't charge stupid prices for their wine either.

“Slow Service!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 29, 2013

I ate in the public bar, clean but basic, the food was good, I had the Beef burger. But the service was very slow.
Do ask the bar man to put the lights on downstairs so you can find the loos if you need them.

“Stunning meal for 3 - £30 two courses!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 21, 2013

Whilst visiting the Shetland we chanced upon this hotel with a £10 for two course menu. What a delight!! We were served by Ben who was the most attentive waiter, we were presented with a starter and main from what we considered to be an excellent choice of five starters, mains and deserts presented in gourmet style. The food was exquisite, service wonderful in a setting overlooking the bay. Please go you won't by disappointed.
