St. Andrews, Fife
20/07/2020: Picked up our Lobster & Crab Box for our anniversary, and we both loved it, very easy to cook at home and tasted amazing, we are definitely going to order another box
19/07/2020: As we can't get to Fife as we'd planned, Fife came to us in Lancashire, courtesy of The Haar at Home. We had a Best of Land and Sea Box as a treat for our wedding anniversary. It arrived on schedule in an insulated, chilled container, perfectly packed with crab, lobster, steak, salad, vegetables, bread and a number of small pots with sauces, butter and seasonings. There were comprehensive instructions. I particularly liked that It made use of the oven sequentially for nearly everything, all at the same temperature with detailed timings given for each item. The results were first class, quite the best steak in along time and the seafood was excellent too. Even the bread was brilliant. Totally up to expectations and highly recommended.


The Clachan Inn

Forth and Endrick, Stirling
10/08/2020: Myself and two friends were planning to get food and drinks at the Clachen. From the moment we arrived the service was phenomenal from all the staff members, they made us feel like we were the only people there. Very personal service. Everyone was so kind, the place was gorgeous and beautifully kept, they were also taking their COVID precautions very seriously. Nothing was too much to ask from them. Thank you for a wonderful stay and great food. I can't recommend this place enough
10/08/2020: Booked a table for last Saturday evening, had a thoroughly enjoyable meal with excellent prompt, efficient courteous service, I would certainly recommend The Clachan and will definitely drop in again next time we are back at Loch Lomond


The Cheesy Toast Shack

East Neuk and Land Ward, Fife
19/07/2020: Awesome toasties. Great service. Amazing location. I am looking forward to visiting kingsbarns. Will be back
19/07/2020: Heard so many people rave about this so finally tried it up today. And it was definitely worth the wait. Service was quick considering making them from scratch, will definitely be back for another Mac and Cheese Toastie!


Brambles Guest House

Mid Argyll, Argyll & Bute, <20£
06/08/2020: What a gem of a find! Please go out of your way to try this cracking place in a great town. We chanced upon it on the way through and we’re immediately attracted by the menu as the selection is about the best we have seen for a bistro anywhere. By the time it came to order we still couldn’t make up our minds as we wanted everything!The owner is very proud of the place and rightfully so, she has it running like a well oiled machine and the staff follow her industrious example, always moving, checking, cleaning, delivering or taking orders. Really impressive. Nice decor as well with quirky colours and furniture with local art to buy on display on the walls. We eventually plumped for the open Scandi sandwich & the fish burger with a couple of pots of tea (real leaves, insulated pot), it was all delicious! They have a licence so you could have a beer/wine as well if you fancied it.One little niggle was the ladies toilet could have been a bit tidier but we did notice that they were allowing non bistro users to use the loos. Gents were spotless so could just have been timing.Just the best lunch and a great experience to watch the whole machine in action.
05/08/2020: Eaten at Brambles 3 times in the last two days & each time was excellent. The quality of all the meals in our party were superb & service from the staff was faultless. As a regular visitor to the area, Brambles will now be a Must on future visits.


Victoria's Restaurant & Coffee Shop

Highland, Perth & Kinross
21/03/2020: A little gem in Pitlochry. From start to finish the experience was great. Shared a starter of trio of salmon which was delicious and full of flavour. I opted for the Victoria's pizza, which was a good size and had a well-balanced array of toppings. Nice drinks selection too, the house lager was delicious! Would highly recommend.
19/03/2020: Our family group of seven had three course dinner there last Friday evening. All courses were of a good size and the food tasted delicious Restaurant was full to capacity and did get a bit noisy when a group of 12 gentlemen came in for their meal. Service was very good and staff all pleasant.With the wine and other drinks the bill came to almost £250 but was happy to pay it.


Samphire Seafood Restaurant

Mid Argyll, Argyll & Bute
23/05/2020: So like everyone else on the planet during the lockdown, we’re completely fed up cooking and not being able to eat out. Samphire come along and save the day, offering delicious take away food.We had the fish & chips, and it was the best we’ve ever had. Light and crisp batter on the lovely flaky fish, gorgeous chips and the most amazing pea purée and tartare sauce on the side.They have organised this service so well, you must order on line (or by phone) and they then allocate a time slot within your preferred hour. You then simply go in the restaurant and pay for your order when you pick it up. As would be expected from a restaurant of this standard, all necessary social distancing and safety measures were in place, and i was greeted so warmly by Laura, the front of house manager. They genuinely appreciated the business and at the moment, more than ever,it is vital to support local businesses.We can thoroughly recommend Samphire and urge you to try their amazing food. Maybe check out their website or social media as they are not doing takeaway every day - they advertise when they’re doing it. Thank you to everyone at Team Samphire for the delicious meal and also for offering us some normality at this difficult time.
19/03/2020: Went here today for lunch during the height of the worlds corona virus. We were only people in the place for duration of our meal which was quality. Lovely venue and waitresses who were polite, knowledgeable and friendly. I got cod wrapped in pancetta, wife got 1/2 lobster which was bumped up to full lobster at no extra cost as owner felt they were on small side. Waitresses were chatty and kind to my chatty daughter, all in Very happy with our lunch, highly recommend.


The Grange at St Andrews

St. Andrews, Fife, 30-45£
03/08/2020: We went to the Grange last night and it was a wonderful experience. The meal, service and drinks were all second to none. The views from the restaurant are also wonderful. It is also very reasonably priced.
02/08/2020: We have been waiting for the Grange to reopen. We had an excellent Lunch in the small dining room often used for private parties.....this time just 3 tables for 2.( the restaurant was busy too and some in the bar - all socially distanced )....our "amuse bouche" was delicious....crispy filo with leek and parmesan filling! Crusty bread and butter with salt crystals whetted our appetite.....My wife had the pressed ham hock with pickled cauliflower, celeriac remoulade and spiced date gel.....I had seared monkfish with charred cucumber, fennel and horseradish....For mains we both had excellent Pan seared sea trout with potato and leek terrine, peas, spinach, cherry tomato....beautifully cooked......Pudding was Chocolate Gorse Gin Cremeux......we had a lovely Rose wine and sparkling water to complete what was a very good meal......we will be back soon. Service was personal and attentive. Great team - well done


Etive Restaurant

Oban South and the Isles, Argyll & Bute
27/07/2020: Excellent little restaurant that does a fab tasting menu. Every dish we had was just perfect, can’t believe how good a potato can taste. Give it a go, you’ll see what I mean! We had the matched wines and again, just perfect! All this topped off with great service and really good value! Finished off our meal with a Whisky. Just had to tell David the kind of flavours we like and he was quick to recommend a few different options, giving us the opportunity to try some we hadn’t seen before.
26/07/2020: Delicious food and brilliant service- would highly recommend!! All fresh produce and beautifully cooked and presented.


The Old Mill Inn

Highland, Perth & Kinross
01/08/2020: What a lovely pub. We came in to watch the football and it had a great atmosphere, great beer and the staff was happy and welcoming. Never stayed in the hotel, but i will on my next visit to pitlochry.
31/07/2020: We popped into the bar for a meal with the dog and what a welcome. Nothing is too much trouble and they are so dog friendly. All precautions were taken with the trace app on a QR code on the table but paper ones if your phone didn't pick it up. The menu was also on the table as a code with paper ones if needed. I watched the team clean everything thoroughly and was most reassured by all their work. Then the food - what can I say well cooked, fresh and plenty of it. The only down side was that the tables were a bit low and we had to hunch over to eat but that didn't stop us enjoying it while the dog slept under the table. Keep up the good work. Oh and get in some White Zinfandel please.


The North Port Restaurant

Perth City Centre, Perth & Kinross
12/03/2020: Second time at this restaurant and was every bit as good as the first time. Service, food and wine all excellent. Lovely bread with a parsnip dip and sage butter before the starters. I had haggis, neeps and tatties to start followed by the most tender beef cheeks. I then had the rhubarb for dessert with wee marshmallows and ice cream - all courses were delicious and the bottle of Rioja was lovely and smooth. Atmosphere in restaurant is great and will definitely be back. It is fairly expensive but worth it for special occasions. Only criticism would be that toilets are up a spiral staircase which is not easy for people like me with mobility issues.
04/03/2020: I caught up with an old friend at North Port and what a great evening. Service was brilliant and food to match. We had a haggis starter and rabbit main with cheese course and a lovey Pinot Noir with port to finish. Lovely atmosphere, attentive staff and everything else to match


Strathearn at The Gleneagles

Strathallan, Perth & Kinross, 60-100£
11/03/2020: Delightful dinner. Beautiful dining room and lovely table arrangement. Friendly and efficient service from the welcome to waiters and sommelier. We felt very cosseted throughout. Starters (Orkney scallops and a lobster ravioli) and mains (Tweed Valley beef and wild venison) were all excellent. Delicious classical cooking and hearty portions. Garnishes with the mains were very good indeed. Desserts were fine, though my pineapple parcel was better than my wife’s vanilla parfait (texture a little hard). Shame the tarte wasn’t on! Great wine list, and we kept it sensible with a lovely SA cab sav. All in all a really very enjoyable evening. It’s not cheap but the whole experience makes it worth it. Knocking on the door of 1* Michelin we thought and nicely devoid of superfluous amuses etc. Considering the number of covers here it’s an impressive operation. Would love to come again.
06/03/2020: Was lucky enough to dine here for my birthday. What can I say? From entering the restaurant to leaving, not one negative. The atmosphere, decor, music all make the dining experience special. The food is out of this world. The staff are wonderful, they are on hand to cater for your every need, top up drinks, clear plates, replenish cutlery, serve food, but never intrusive. They make you feel so welcome and that nothing is too much trouble.


Everest Inn

Dunfermline Central, Fife
28/07/2020: Their currys are to die for! I love this place the food is always fresh and super tasty! Well done guys
12/06/2020: It’s been a few months since I ordered a take away due to Lockdown , however did so tonight & wow was amazing, so fresh , tasty , delivered quickly ...... Absolutely fabulous! Thanks to all the staff at the Everest Thank you Stuart


Annaya's Grillhouse

Helensburgh Central, Argyll & Bute
24/03/2020: I have been to Annaya's a number of times, both for takeaway and Indian food to eat in. Every time I visit I feel extremely welcome and the service is personal and friendly with the owner explaining the specials to us and making recommendations. I used to have quite a habit of always ordering the same thing when I went for an Indian, until I started eating here! It's always a struggle to choose between so many delicious sounding dishes but I am never disappointed. Most recently I had the Lamb Desi which was mouthwatering and the naans and flatbread which we had with our meal were excellent too. I can't wait to eat here again soon.
19/03/2020: We popped into town to pick up some food and decided to have something from Annayas. In this current climate we expected only to get a takeaway, instead the restaurant was open and we were treated to the most delicious meal, with a few extras thrown in for free. Both dishes were from the specials board, both described perfectly and each unique in its flavour. Hoping that people continue supporting these guys so we can enjoy the special experience on the other side!THE Only place to eat indian food in my opinion!


Fern Cottage Restaurant

Highland, Perth & Kinross
09/08/2020: Lovely staff pity about the Dick Turpin prices. Nearly £8 for a glass of wine. Wine not on menu, taking the pi**
09/08/2020: Just had a meal 2 nights ago at the Fern Cottage & it was absolutely delightful. My daughter needs gluten free veggie food which is not always that easy to come by for something a bit different & the Fern Cottage came up trumps both the dishes we got were veggie & gluten free & were very delicious . My daughter also managed a gluten free brownie to finish off. The staff were very lovely & tentative. Well done Fern Cottage


The Rav

St. Andrews, Fife
31/07/2020: Lovely food served on the small terrace.. Staff were friendly and very helpful and premises lovely.. mojito was lovely . Will be returning next time we visit
31/07/2020: We recommend this place to eat if you're ever in St. Andrew's....staff were attentive and respectful of the new COVID rules, and the food was nicely presented and delicious! Magical meatballs! Also thanks to The Rav for a complimentary drink....much appreciated! Will definitely return...
