Review on Foyer Restaurant + Gallery

Take one de-commissioned, granite-walled church, inject some life, vigour and forward- thinking and you have The Foyer. Set up in 1999 as part of an initiative for disadvantaged young people, it's definitely not Jamie Oliver in tartan, nor is it some holier-than-thou lentils-and-sandals joint. Instead, the aim is to provide a 'haven of light, taste and style' serving cracking modern food in uncluttered contemporary surroundings.

The menu changes every few weeks and the emphasis is on colourful eclectic food with a few Scottish overtones. At lunch, you can look forward to groovy ciabatta sandwiches (sticky honey and chilli chicken with stir-fried greens, seaweed and soya bean salad), samosas packed with curried sweet potato, peas and apricots, Cajun-spiced salmon and spring onion fishcakes – and more besides.

In the evening, things get more serious. Check out pan-fried wood pigeon with cauliflower purée and soused vegetables or best end of lamb with smoked paprika, baba ganoush, anchovy, pimento and caper frittata, as well as desserts such as blueberry Bakewell tart with white chocolate ice cream and lavender syrup. The one-page wine list fizzes with interesting stuff.

As its full name suggests, the Foyer also incorporates an art gallery featuring exhibitions from working Scottish artists: the displays change every few weeks – just like the menus.
