Square Meal Review of Scran & Scallie ?

Like many of their high-ranking colleagues, Michelin-starred chef Tom Kitchin and his sidekick Dominic Jack (The Kitchin and Castle Terrace) have decided to dip their toes into the world of gastropubs: the result is Scran & Scallie – a Scottish-themed foodie boozer with a rustic, ‘couthy’ edge. The interior is a curious mix of traditional tartans and tweeds with Scandinavian furnishings and Timorous Beasties wallpaper, while the menu is the result of plundering the nation’s archives. ‘From nature to plate’ is the ethos, and the concept is realised in old-fashioned ‘scran’ such as sheep’s ‘heid’ broth, fish pie and roasted bone marrow – plus contemporary riffs including pig’s ear carpaccio with sauce gribiche. Scottish tipples aren’t neglected either, with a range of real ales from likes of Harviestoun, Fyne Ales and Williams Bros. ‘Scallies’ (children) have their own glassed-in playroom within view of the tables.
