A modern dining-pub in five acres of wooded grounds

At a glance

AA Pick of the Pubs
Bar menu

Opposite a fine Victorian railway viaduct by the Lothianbridge over the River South Esk, this family-run former coaching inn is an expert blend of old and new. The fireplace, oak beams and exposed stone walls are original, while the fine wooden floor owes much to the 21st century. Quite reasonably, Scottish cask ales monopolise the beer pumps, and there is also an extensive wine list. Food in the more formal, AA-Rosette restaurant is modern British and pub classics with a strong Scottish accent. Noteworthy dishes include Perthshire braised daube of venison, horseradish and chive mash, red wine cabbage and roast quince; grilled John Dory, crab and samphire risotto, roasted salsify and brown shrimp butter sauce; and 'Sun Inn pig on a plate', featuring pork fillet wrapped in Parma ham, sausage roll, crisp black pudding, creamed mash and apple sauce. Haggis is one of the optional side dishes. You may take high tea any weekday afternoon.
