Mixing an atmospheric Old Town setting with chic, contemporary style, you can expect the unexpected at Angels with Bagpipes. Its name was inspired by a wooden carving in the Thistle Chapel of the St Giles’ Cathedral, and a version created by artist Alex McFadyen can be seen on display in the restaurant. The menus are just as much of a talking point, with dishes that feature local produce given an Angels’ touch.

Diners can expect both modern, innovative dishes and traditional Scottish treats with a twist. My scallops starter arrived with apple, black pudding and deliciously tangy pickled walnut. This was followed by a main of beautifully cooked sea-reared trout with red pepper, cabbage, quinoa and salsa verde. My companion tucked into tender lamb, accompanied by pea panna cotta, asparagus and mint.

Fraser Smith and his team clearly have fun with food, and the desserts are an adventure of taste and texture. I went for the delicious chocolate brownie with coconut and passion fruit sorbet, which was absolute heaven. The restaurant also offers a reasonably priced seasonal lunch menu, a tasting menu, and an extensive wine and drinks list. Angels with Bagpipes will surprise and please in equal measure.
