Scalloway Hotel

Main Street, SHETLAND, ZE1 0TR

2 rosettes

An unpretentious place that opens its arms to all-comers, from oil rig workers to passing ships' crews, making the bar a convivial haunt for casual dishes along the lines of fish pie with parsley mash or haddock and chips done right. The restaurant has linen tablecloths, quality glasses and a seasonal menu that showcases the islands' produce - local lamb, for starters, its seared belly and crisp lamb 'bacon' served with Jerusalem artichoke purée, followed by lemon sole with crushed Shetland Black potatoes, caramelised salsify and crab and tarragon butter sauce. Desserts are no less creative: pear tarte Tatin with five spice ice cream and almond shards, for example.
