Out to Lunch - Scott?s

Out to Lunch - Scott?s

Scott's ample frontage has the allure of a fine dining establishment. Immediately I expected to be impressed - and was.

OK, so its location is not exactly "mediaville" and it does exude the feel of an "old-boys' club", but that had a certain attraction, too - I had found another venue to take a client to have a discreet catch-up.

Its recently refurbished interior is lavish, with the centrepiece being a large fish tank. The walls are adorned with paintings gathered over many years - Scott's has been a popular eatery for more than 150 years.

And so to the food, which was orientated around its speciality, fish. My dining partner had the dressed crab "three ways'' for starter, and grilled dover sole as a main. I went for the steamed cockles in black bean and chilli sauce and decided to keep the chef happy by also choosing the sole.

Scallops, lobster, halibut and John Dory are also featured on this extensive menu, as is Scott's famous fish pie, which has survived the test of time.

The wine list caters for most tastes, and the waiter was most helpful with a recommendation to partner our chosen dishes.

If you do have room after your fish, the desserts have their own separate menu with suggested pudding wines and liqueurs.

Expect to pay £10 to £12 for your starters, with main courses ranging from £15 to £ 32.
