The Scran & Scallie
Two of Scotland's top chefs, Michelin star chef Tom Kitchin and Dominic Jack of Castle Terrace Restaurant, have come together to create menus of fresh, home-cooked dishes using quality, seasonal, local produce, with the support of Head Chef Jamie Knox. Co-owners and Directors Michaela Kitchin and Philippe Nublat are overseeing operations and front of house, together with Restaurant Manager Marek Weir.
The Scran & Scallie, which received a prestigious Bib Gourmand from the Michelin Guide 2019 showcases a seasonal menu in line with the ‘From Nature to Plate’ philosophy of the gastro-pub. Classic signature dishes such as Ham, Egg & Chips, Fish pie, Fish & Chips and Sunday Roast are served alongside some seasonal favourites such as Asparagus & Roasted salmon and Eton mess to name a few.
The Scran & Scallie is open 7 days a week serving lunch, bar ‘scran’ and dinner as well as an extensive drinks menu throughout the day. A set lunch menu is also available Monday to Friday. Breakfast is served from 8.30-11.00 am on Saturdays and Sundays throughout the year. This breakfast menu features a selection of favourites such as Scottish breakfast, Eggs Benedict and Drop Scone pancakes to mention a few, as well as freshly made seasonal juices.
The rustic but charming interior of the gastro pub showcases many of the old features of the building, refreshed with modern Scottish accents and a hint of Scandinavian influences. Furnishings are distressed and reclaimed with tartan and tweeds, adding character and bringing the original interior back to life. Fabrics from the Isle of Bute mixed up with exposed original brickwork and natural tones are sitting alongside tactile Scandinavian finishings and wallpaper by Scottish design duo Timorous Beasties.
The Michelin Guide Bib Gourmand is awarded to an establishment defined as 'exceptional good food at moderate prices'.
The Scran & Scallie is located on one floor and has wheelchair access. No dress code is required.
Children of all ages are welcome until 10pm and dogs too.
