Review on North Bridge Brasserie

Dramatically located in the grand marble reception hall of the old Scotsman newspaper building (now one of the city's stylish hotels), the North Bridge Brasserie offers a casual and funky alternative to the food in the prestigious Vermilion restaurant. Tables are dotted in window alcoves and a huge steel staircase leads up to extra space on the mezzanine floor – which has jaw-dropping views of the hotel's interior.

Lunch and dinner menus offer a broad sweep of brasserie dishes taking in crab cakes with chilli jam, duck cottage pie with honey mustard cabbage, and tiger prawns with noodles, coconut, chilli and lime. There are also a few patriotic flourishes in the shape of venison loin with goats' cheese mash and rowanberry jelly as well as rump of Perthshire lamb with clapshot and fried haggis.

Grills feature prominently, and the line-up of desserts might include – say – Granny Smith crumble or the bizarre-sounding warm chocolate beetroot cake with vanilla ice cream.
