Our Food

There is no set menu in the bar and grill so you can choose whether you have one course, two or three at an extremely reasonable price.

Our Food

We are proud of the food that we serve. Eating is as formal or informal as you want to make it with lots of eating options.

Our Food

All of our steaks are butchered in house from the finest Scottish Beef. At least 95% of our fresh ingredients are now supplied by producers in East Lothian.

Our Food

Bread is baked fresh daily, icecreams and sorbets are all homemade, as are all of our desserts.

Our Food

We have a simple philosophy - seasonal produce, locally sourced, beautifully cooked and presented simply.
