Stuart Muir is a talented chef who attained a Michelin star aged just 23.  He cooks top notch seasonal fare with skill and is passionate about produce. 

So the Market Menu at Dine which offers 2 courses for £14.50 and 3 for £19.50 inc. tea or coffee is outrageously good value. 

It was my friend Kate’s first visit and she appreciated the polished classy surroundings where everything gleams and service is friendly and professional. 

After lunch I asked Kate to send me her thoughts: 

"My abiding memory is of the scent of all the food. The smoked haddock fishcakes were so delicious and full of fish, the chicken supreme was moist and tender and so flavoursome with the buttered potatoes, green beans and snap peas which were cooked to perfection.  Summer pudding was  light, sweet and zingy. The sweetness of the strawberries and the sharpness of the other berries made it an absolute delight and I didn’t want it to end” 

But what about Mrs Bite. Currently obsessed with summer salads I couldn’t resist one featuring endive as you rarely see it in suburban shops. Aromatic peas were scattered around the plate whilst little gem lettuce and cherry tomatoes rubbed shoulders with sourdough croutons all under a light Caesar dressing.  This dish was summer on a plate.
Next for me was shoulder of lamb which had been slow cooked until it fell apart and then rolled back together. An olive tapenade was a surprisingly good accompaniment and the briny, salty flavours of the fruit and seasoned meat was balanced by tenderstem broccoli and sugar snaps. Both Kate and I commented on how vibrant and crisp all the veg was. 

 Mrs Bite’s first foodie love will always be the peach. So imagine how delighted I was when I spotted peach tart on the menu after initially being distracted by the summer pudding. Pastry chef Nikita had made a pastel coloured mousse airy as a cloud to sit on peach pieces in a light pastry shell. And if that wasn’t enough excitement there was ice cream from Stewart Tower in Perthshire. 

Provenance has a special place on the menu at Dine with a map illustrating where all produce is sourced before it is cooked with the utmost respect. 

Kate said that she would have no hesitation at all in recommending Dine and I was pleased she liked it as much as I do.  (S. Wilson)
