Once inside The Scottish Prince, first to greet you is a wall of whisky. Well, almost. With some 150+ bottles of whisky behind the bar and more to come, it’s clear what your tipple of choice should be here. These lads are making it their life mission to see every patron enjoying whisky, or at least appreciating it.
Like the scene from an old movie, British Racing Green-coloured paint and dark wood adorns the walls, while tartan lines the seats in the cosy booths. Hung in vintage frames are aged prints of gallant clippers sailing through angry seas; there’s nautical paraphernalia aplenty from navigational lights to barometers, sextants and yellowed maps of Scotland and the oceans of the world. Under dimmed lights and to a Blues-heavy soundtrack, it’s a warm and inviting setting that just makes you wanna pull up a stool at the bar and settle in for the night.
Come hungry and dine on share plates like marinated sardines with garlic and confit cherry tomatoes, tender lamb cutlets soaked in whiskey and maple syrup, black mussels in champagne and smoked bacon broth or, an old Cambus fave, kipfler and green pea arancini balls. But it’s the cheese boards—Walk The Plank and The Captain’s Table—that we'll return for time and time again.
