Whighams Wine Cellars
The moment you step foot inside Whighams Wine Cellars you’re welcomed into a warm but contemporary space where you can truly relax and unwind. The focus at this stylish Scottish restaurant is on fresh seafood and high-quality wine, and my partner and I were delighted to indulge in these two specialities. Following a recommendation from the manager, I began my evening with a glass of fruity Beaujolais. However, if you fancy trying a few different wines, be sure to check out the list of flights.
To begin our meal, we enjoyed starters of whisky-cured smoked salmon with lemon and chive crème fraîche, and rich Cullen skink with artisan sourdough bread. Having whetted our appetites, my partner and I chose our mains, opting for the grilled lemon sole with baby leeks and samphire, and delicate pan-fried halibut. Both dishes were perfectly cooked and full of flavour and we were delighted with our respective choices. However, for those who aren’t fans of seafood, fear not – there are plenty of meat and vegetarian dishes to be found at Whighams. In addition to all this, Whighams boasts a great social calendar. Stop by for Jazz Club on Sunday, take in some live piano music on Saturday or take part in Wine Club on the last Wednesday of the month.
