Tucked just off the town's main square, this old inn has successfully negotiated the pub/restaurant dynamic. There are bar snacks such as wraps and burgers on offer, but in the dapper restaurant you'll find Scottish-inspired dishes that really impress. West Coast scallops come with a pecan crumb, black pudding and cauliflower purée, plus dinky shallot rings, while a main-course confit pork belly number hits all the right buttons. There are steaks, too, sourced from Scottish herds, and served with a host of accompaniments including caramelised vegetables and garlic mushrooms. Finish with an ace dark chocolate fondant with cherry purée and an almond streusel.
