That is roast loin of venison, served with roast parsnips, potato dauphine and hazelnuts. It comes from the Dining Room at 28 Queen Street, Edinburgh, which is the restaurant in the Scotch Malt Whisky Society. This was the main course of one of the very best meals that I have ever eaten in my life. It was simply stunning. Hay-smoked lamb, roast venison and a massive cheese board, washed down with a complimentary dram of malt, our bouches amused with peat smoked salmon roulade, kept quietly happy with a bottle of malbec and tucked into bed with coffees and complimentary handmade truffles. All for less than you'd pay for two courses and a glass of wine in many London joints. Bloody marvellous.
Don’t be put off if you're not a whisky drinker – there's no obligatory whisky to drink. Just incredibly good fine dining at less than the usual fine dining prices.
Sadly, a very, very low battery on the mobile left me unable to capture this meal and blog it. But, if you're north of the border, please go. You won’t regret it.
