Gallery Restaurant at The Guildford Arms
The Guildford Arms is best known for its superb range of traditional ales and whiskies, and is very popular for lunch and dinner. After taking in the fabulous Jacobean-style ceiling, head upstairs to the elegant boutique Gallery Restaurant, which is situated at mezzanine level. Lunch and classic bar meals are also served on the ground floor of The Guildford Arms.
The menu is packed with traditional pub favourites, such as breaded haddock, homemade burgers, Crombie’s sausage served with creamy mash, and the fantastic Aberdeen Angus and Dark Island ale pie. Also popular are the Shetland mussels in creamy garlic sauce, and haggis-stuffed chicken breast with black pepper and whisky sauce. Lighter dishes recently added to the menu include a roast peach and Parma ham salad, as well as a hot smoked salmon salad Niçoise, or pear, feta and walnut salad. Meat-lovers won’t be able to resist the chargrilled range, which includes 21-day-hung Aberdeen Angus sirloin and rib-eye served traditionally with mushrooms, tomatoes and garlic butter. Vegetarians will be equally impressed with options like scrumptious mushroom, spinach, hazelnut and Brie Wellington. A fantastic selection of keenly priced wine along with traditional ales and craft beers can be matched to the dishes – just ask the knowledgeable staff for advice.
