It was the twinkling Christmas lights in the window of Three Lemons that first drew us in. It is a beautiful building both inside and out and the most recent owner, Jake, has kept many of the original features of the tweed wholesaler and country outfit maker which was in operation for over a century but the new and most important addition is his wood fired pizza oven.
I can’t remember when I had a better lunch and certainly not one of this standard for the price. I think that’s what you call starting as you mean to go on.
Having spent the last few weeks immersed in online Christmas shopping I finally reached a point of being ready to leave my virtual world of bargain hunting and venture out into the wilderness of festive reality.
Tis the season to be sociable; to sit inside, relax and chat with friends while gazing at the cold noses outside.
One of the many reasons I love it when my Mum comes to stay is that I don't need to feel guilty about being a "lady who lunches".
The DCA has long been a favourite haunt of mine whether it be popping for a glass of wine and to watch a film with friends after work or for a casual supper.
With Courier-country being increasingly blessed with new posh restaurants like Castlehill, The Tayberry & The Newport, readers like me probably don’t feel the need to venture far from the policies to push the boat out occasionally.
I am not a golfer. I am not entirely sure of the rules of golf and I would much rather be presented with a potato wedge than a sand variety. I was, therefore, unsure how well I would fit in at Auchterarder 70, the new addition to the Gleneagles Estate located inside The Dormy Clubhouse by the 18th hole.
I like a nice cup of coffee as much as the next person but as the well-travelled Mr Kerry spends a lot of time in big cities with trendy-bearded-barristas and rare beans, he has become somewhat spoilt and I would go so far as to say a coffee snob.
Forgan's in St Andrews has long been a firm favourite of mine due to its quirky, warm atmosphere and hearty food. The announcement that the team were expanding their franchise into Broughty Ferry therefore created quite a stir. Surely nothing could beat the original though, could it?
