Pheasant burger, with haggis mash, and vegetables in a red wine sauce: "A plump burger was served atop the mash, surrounded by the sauce. The selection of vegetables gave this dish plenty of vibrant colour." "This was a well made, firm, and plump burger, made from good quality meat." "The components suited each other. The delicate flavour of the burger was supported by the contrasting richness of the sauce, with the individual tastes of the vegetables standing well on their own."
