Review on Ducks Inn

The country cousin of Duck's at Le Marche Noir in Edinburgh (now open only for private functions), this restaurant is housed in the extensively re-vamped Kilspindie Hotel, some 20 minutes' drive from the city centre. Informal meals are served in the Donald's Bar Bistro, named after Malcolm Duck's father and is the more casual option to the sister restaurant Ducks, where the attention focuses on upbeat modern food offered in a cosy dining room.

Scottish produce is the jumping off point for a menu of vivid dishes with a strong French and Mediterranean bias. A brochette of scallops and black pudding comes with rocket and fennel salad, fillet of Buccleuch beef is accompanied by a haggis tartlet and wild mushrooms, while new season's rack of lamb is served with gratinated macaroni, confit tomatoes and roast garlic.

Matching the food is a mightily impressive, award-winning wine list with a fine selection by the glass. Malcolm Duck has toured the world's vineyards in search of quality, although list has a deliberately 'inflated' French section.
