Review on But 'n' Ben Restaurant

But 'n' Ben is the old fashioned Scottish name for a rustic, two-roomed dwelling: in fact this delightfully cosy, whitewashed restaurant was once the holiday cottage belonging to a family from Dundee. It's a highly atmospheric place: you can even watch waves crashing on the craggy, weather-beaten shore from the windows of the dining room.

Arbroath is just a hop down the coast, and its fabled 'smokies' (whole hot-smoked haddock) appear in many guises on the menu - perhaps stuffed into a light pancake with a rich cream sauce or added to kedgeree. Fresh seasonal seafood also makes its mark with, say, Loch Fyne oysters and mussels, locally landed lobsters and langoustines, deep-fried monkfish and fish pie. There are also steaks and a few more meat dishes for those with a carnivorous preference, while desserts often include that Scottish heartwarmer, clootie dumpling packed with fruit.
