we were looking for a place for simple dinner..not looking for a heavy dinner,
walk past white house restaurant, was reading google reviews on the fly…apparently this place is especially good for cocktails….
so we settle in at the white house on 14.6.2017. ^^
wife ordered a whisky cocktail. quite excellent, even for non drinker like me tasting it…
later wife ordered a second martini cocktail (top photo). it was very good too!
we ordered the west coast mussels.
surprise surprise, it was the best succulent mussels we had this trip (even better than the very good ones at uig restaurant)…the white wine sauce not creamy but very tasty.
this dish was really a very good order for just £6.50!.
unfortunately, everything went downhill after that!
this was the poorest & tiniest scallop i had this trip..about the standard of scallops at The Oyster Shed (which was not good!)
the seafood platter was really a bad pub food.
calamari was dry & tough.
the 3 disappearing “king” prawns were just pathetic! the preparation of it was even more pathetic..
kippers was like some cheap stuff pulled off a supermarket rack, nothing like the consistent good ones at all the b&b. NOT good at all!
minced salmon was at least quite tasty. but not something we could take more than a mouthful..
so dinner came up to £44. can consider that as just paying for the mussels & 2 cocktails.
basically the other orders we need not have bothered.
won’t take any food here except for the mussels!
after dinner at the white house, we returned to our car & drove back to our b&b the willows at kirkhill, retracing the same lakeside drive along beauty firth.
we caught the sunset, and the setting sun was just inching down the horizon.
the photos looked spectacular but actually the golden rays were just because my iphone 6 camera had a crack…no mystery!
a really magical moment in magical scotland!
