The Scalloway Hotel, on the village waterfront, is a family-run business which prides itself on using the best quality local produce.
Diners in the bar can enjoy beer-battered haddock and hand-cut chips or Shetland ale and Orkney beef pie. The catch of the day might be fresh langoustines or baked tusk with a mussel and crab chowder.
In the dining room, the menu often includes dishes like rack of Shetland lamb, lobster or confit of halibut. An interesting wine list featuring both the Old and New World is there to complement your meal, along with a wide selection of malt whiskies and gins.
Fresh local produce with the emphasis on seafood, this restaurant is gaining an excellent reputation with local clientele as well as repeat guests to the hotel.
Halibut confit on a Saffron Mash with Shetland Mussel Butter Sauce: "The fish was very well presented sitting on top of piped saffron potatoes with mussel butter sauce drizzled around the plate." "An excellent piece of local halibut, beautifully cooked."
