Young Bonnie Prince Charlie's Beef Wellington
You know Charlie, the rightful King of Scotland. When there was an allegiance with France and Scotland against the English, this was another of his favourite meals while in France.

Edinburgh's Steamed Salmon
High-heat steamed to hold the delicate flavour in with fresh herbs. Can have a little bit of pink in the middle — however, we will cook it longer for you if preferred, just ask.

We worship this seagoing fish that sacrifices its life as it returns to the river where it was born for the next generation. Served with our Chef's choice of two vegetables and two potatoes.
Hadrian's Wall Roasted Duck Breast
The very best of duck breast with Rabbie's mustard, honey and rosemary marinade, then oven roasted, for it unleashes the flavours as you have never tasted before. We recommend this dish cooked medium rare. The Romans came to conquer, but the Scots fought well and held them back. Then the Romans built Hadrian's Wall to keep the Scots from attacking them. The Roman Empire fell apart after this. Served with our Chef's choice of two vegetables and two potatoes.

Dumfries Stuffed Red Pepper
Whole red pepper, stuffed with long-grain, pan-fried rice with onion, celery, zucchini, carrot, cilantro and jalapeño. Then baked in the oven with a cheddar cheese sauce. Sounds simple to cook — it is not. However, tastes fantastic. Served with our Chef's choice of two vegetables and two potatoes.
Musselburgh's Fish and Chips
Boneless filet of haddock. If you went to a 'Scottish chippy', this is what you would get: real chips and real fish, as it's cooked in Scotland. Succulent fish in our beer batter with mushy peas and our house-made tartar sauce. I eat this weekly, reminds me of home.
