The food at The Mad Platter is delicious. Picture a thick, traditional French onion soup followed by perfectly cooked roast beef with all the trimmings, including colourful purple carrots. Or, for something lighter look to the brunch menu, which includes the Mad Stornoway Benedict – a house special version of eggs Benedict made with black pudding and puff pastry – and the traditional interpretation, which my partner enjoyed after flavoursome mushroom soup. The offering also features tartine, a range of croque madame and monsieur – including a haggis croque monsieur – in addition to a dedicated night for steak frites on Friday and a famous Sunday beef roast. The fare is complemented by an international range of wine and beer, tea, coffee and homemade hot chocolate. For a grand finale, the dessert menu features delights such as berry crumble, chocolate brownie and homemade ice cream.
