The Railbridge Bistro (Queensferry, Edinburgh) 2021 : Review

The Visit

Visit : 29/08/2021

After a wee day trip to Dundee we opted to come here for a late dinner, as my parents and my best friends parents have been here many times.

On arrival we asked for a table for 3 but were told they didn’t have any food left apart from fish and chips as they have had a MEGA busy day, we all said that’s fine and shown to our table.

The Food

Haddock and Chips £14.95

On arrival this looked really nice, and my mouth started to water as I was now very hungry.

It was time to dig in.

This was really nice, no bones, perfectly cooked, lovely crisp batter and a great flavour.

Every bite was really nice, even with a little tarter mmmm this was so good.

Again like my lunch in Dundee this was a great meal, again with lots of laughs and chat.

My Rating:

Rating: 5 out of 5.

Overall :

If you have never been here I highly recommend it, the views from here of the bridges are amazing in daylight and at night.

The restaurant looked really nice inside and outside, and I will be back to try more food as I was very relaxed and enjoyed my meal very much.

Old Keswickian Fish and Chips Restaurant (Keswick, Cumbrea) 2021 : Review

The Visit

Today I felt like going a wee drive, and I choose Keswick which is only just over a 2 hour drive away from Glasgow plus its somewhere I have never seen yet.

On arrival it was a mixed day weather wise, rain dry rain etc but I heard back in Glasgow it was much much worse so I think I got the better weather.

I didn’t know anywhere here but I choose here to have my dinner in.

The Food

Smoked Haddock, Mozzarella & Spring Onion Fishcake £4.40

This sounded very nice so I had to go for it, as I do love a good fishcake.

Presentation was very nice, and I couldn’t wait to dig right in.

The coating was nice and crispy, and the insides perfectly cooked and very YUM!

This was a perfect sized portion for a starter.

Chicken Burger & Chips £6.10

I had no clue what to order for my main, so I opted for the classic chicken burger.

I also added a slice of cheese and some mayonnaise.

Lets start with the chips, these did not need any salt and had a great flavour and nice crunch to them….and there was loads!

The chicken burger was very nice, and very filling and had a nice flavour to it.

This was a very filling main and great value for money.

Kingshouse Hotel (Glencoe, Scotland) 2021 : Review

The Visit

I have been here before, but it was a few years ago with a tour company and we only stopped just to see the deer.

Today me and a few friends were doing a wee Scottish drive, and I added here as a stop so they could see the deer and maybe stop for a drink or lunch.

The Food

Kingshouse Fish & Chips £17
Beer battered haddock, coleslaw, chunky fries

I am not a big fish and chips person, but I thought lets try something different.

On arrival this was a BIG portion, and it looked really really good….time to taste.

I started with the chips, these were very nice and had a nice slight crunch to them.

Now to the fish, ohhh this was very fresh, the batter was perfect and had a lovely texture to it….all in all it was very very tasty and highly recommended.

Blueberry Smash Mocktail £4.00
Blueberries, honey syrup, lime juice & fresh rosemary

Today I was the driver, so I had to be a good boy and not drink any beers etc

I have actually cut back on a lot of alcoholic drinks since last year, mostly due to driving more and watching the wallet.

This was really tasty, very sweet and refreshing which was perfect after my long drive.

Overall :

Today was a great day, time with friends, taking in the sights and the food here was very nice plus the view with the lunch amazing!!

Highly recommended you take a visit here either for sights, food, stay over night or all of the above.
