The Cock & Bull Bar & Restaurant

Ellon Road, Blairton, BALMEDIE, AB23 8XY

A cast-iron range warms the bar in this creeper-clad, stone-built coaching inn, standing quite alone in open farmland north of Aberdeen. Conversation is easily stimulated by local artist Irene Morrison's paintings, assorted hanging artefacts and good beer. Affordably priced food in the restaurant uses Marine Stewardship Council-approved white fish and Peterhead-landed shellfish; and beef and pork from the region's stock farms. A seasonal menu might list Scottish girolles in garlic butter with pea pancake, broad beans and parsley fritters; the Aberdeen Angus burger; or sweet-spiced breast of Gressingham duck with gooseberries and spätzle. Great wines and whiskies as well.
