It was a long time since I had been to Scott’s Bar and Restaurant at Largs Yacht Haven. It had changed beyond all recognition when I joined a recent family celebration hosted by my brother-in-law and his wife to celebrate their silver wedding anniversary. It was a lovely occasion.John & Lesley 25

We had a long table by the window. The menus were interesting and varied. I was particularly surprised and pleased that there was a complete substitute vegetarian menu that I could choose from.

The vegetables tempura were delicious. Throughout the meal red and white wine, beer and cider all flowed freely. John and Lesley were very generous hosts. Also, the service at Scott’s was excellent. We had a dedicated server taking our orders and ensuring all was well. It was lovely to feel so valued. We had the long table, by the window, at the top of this photo.

For the main courses, fish and chips was a popular choice. This was served in a beer batter with mushy peas and a slice of lemon. Having eaten his own portion, our nephew then “helped” his girlfriend with her fish before moving on to “share” my meal. This young man has hollow legs: he takes a lot of feeding!

food at scottsI cannot blame him for wanting to share my maincourse, though. I had chosen the vegetables fajitas which arrived sizzling to the table. They were served with sour crea, cheese and a chilli sauce. It was very tasty, but there was no way that I would manage to finish the four pancakes offered. My husband chose the ribeye steak. It was large and cooked exactly as he had asked. His steak was served with onion rings, mushrooms and grilled tomatoes. This was a big success. (Our nehew had no chance!)

The quality of the icecream was excellent and left him a little space to “help” me with my chocolate brownie. The bownie was tasty, but, to my taste, slightly dryer than I would have liked. The selection of coffees was wide and included decaffinated choices.

After our meal, we adjourned to the bar for a night cap before the evening came to an end. Scott’s is a very sleak gastro pub now. Although it had been a long time since I had been to Scott’s Bar and Restaurant in Largs, Scotland, we had a lovely meal and a fun evening, so I highly recommend it and doubt it will be so long before I am back again.
