Café St Honoré continues to overlay an award-winning ethical, organic and sustainable ethos across every aspect of its dining experience. Set against a delightful French bistro backdrop, chef-director Neil Forbes confidently showcases classic technique, contemporary flourishes and impeccably sourced Scottish produce. A rich mix of organic choices on a carefully selected wine list supports a focused à la carte which runs from lunch to dinner, with plenty of dishes that can be carefully refashioned as dairy or gluten-free. Smoked salmon terrine with horseradish and pickled cucumbers appears alongside the likes of braised pork belly with Peelham Farm nduja or North Sea hake with Shetland blueshell mussels. Crispy sage adds texture to pumpkin and pearl barley risotto, featuring on the appealing fixed-price lunch and evening options, together with venison cottage pie and Arran mustard greens. Lunchtime cookery masterclasses and meet the producer evenings are worth keeping an eye out for, in a venue that applies enviable rigour towards the happiness of its suppliers, staff and customers. Also, don’t leave without sampling the dark chocolate fondant – it’s sensational.
