As well as being located right between the two road bridges, Scotts has a perfect view of the iconic Forth Bridge – a tourist’s dream.
Sitting between the Forth Road Bridge and the new Queensferry Crossing, Scotts has a dramatic setting that will wow Scots and tourists alike. From the restaurant you can look out as boats sail by on the Forth.
Scotts is very luxe, with expensive interior, from plush seats to exotic plants while the exposed steel beams give it a New York loft apartment vibe. It also has a Instagram worthy outdoor seating area, complete with heaters for our chilly summer nights.
We were greeted at the door and, as we were a little early, we were shown to the bar while we waited for our table. Moments later we were directed to our table and the wonderful waitress Anna provided five-star service throughout.
The menu has something for everyone, from olives and hummus starters to the ever-trendy bao buns, while mains include lemon and garlic roasted chicken, kashmiri lamb and vegan options like plant-based crispy tofu.
The food is excellent. We had pan-fried scallops and aromatic duck. If we had eaten nothing else, these dishes would have been worth the trip. We also had the mushroom pappardelle, which was creamy and delicious while also being light and not too much of a belly buster, and the blue cheese and bacon burger, excellent and bursting with flavour, especially the maple-covered bacon. Yum. For dessert we had a chocolate fudge, which was rich and decadent.
Scotts was full when we visited on a Friday night, so booking is essential.
Our bill for two came to £75 for three courses. Pretty good for the level of service and food on offer here.
