Review on Callander Meadows
Nick and Susannah Parkes learned their trade at Gleneagles before setting up on their own at this comfortable Georgian townhouse situated in Scotland's first National Park. Theirs is a genuinely unpretentious restaurant-with-rooms, fitted out with unclothed tables, tartan curtains, chalk boards and jazz playing the background.
The owners also cook, and their menu is a sprightly mix of Scottish ingredients with some French and Mediterranean influences showing through. Smoked venison might be teamed up with beetroot, radish and watercress, while steamed mussels are given a spicy tomato sauce. Mains pick up the theme with the likes of grilled John Dory, chive mash and parsley sauce, baked rump of lamb with spring greens, or wild sea trout with a rösti, sprouting broccoli and sorrel butter sauce.
Proceedings conclude in lavish style with a vast dessert platter to share; otherwise pick from a selection that might include steamed cranberry and date sponge with mulled wine sauce, spiced apple pie with custard or malted chocolate pecan tart.
