This is a favourite of ours – they specialise exclusively in open sandwiches. The food is OK – we shared a ham sandwich to start then each had different variants of smoked salmon. But you don’t really go here for the food – it’s the quirkyness of the place (full of antiques, junk, etc.) and the really high quality services (white tablecloths in a pub).

Lunch in a newish restaurant in Aberdeen, which has had good reviews. Very stark white decor and we were the first in the restaurant when we arrived at 12.45 on a Sunday. Excellent starter of grilled goats cheese and apricot chutney but my warm chorizo salad never arrived – I got a Caesar salad with chorizo! In general, the quality of the food was high (my daughter Alison was very complimentary about her risotto). Worth trying again I think. Not too expensive.
The original Mother India cafe and, like its Edinburgh counterpart, serves small tapas-like dishes. The menu, as far as I can remember, was the same. There were 4 of us and we had 8 dishes – too many to remember but the honey baked lamb chops were particularly good. Very busy – no reservations so join the queue and take your chances (we had to wait about 10 minutes). Cost about £66 for 4, which included beers.
