John Gilmour's Rib-Eye Steak, Thyme Roasted Baby Potatoes, Whisky, Shallot and Anchovy Butter: "The steak was well trimmed with a good seared appearance and enriched by the butter sauce." "The meat was tender, succulent and flavoursome." "The sauce was subtle and well proportioned." "Cooked to a high standard, searing in the flavour of the meat and the butter sauce was superb."
