Not that this would stop us. But there was still an air of pretension floating in Rocpool; the staff was a bit distant, the guest all seemed happy with themselves being there. The upper-crust or something like that.
It bugged me for 5 minutes but then I looked at the menu and forgot about it.
Then they brought the dishes and was very happy; food was good. Freshness in all the produces as we have been accustomed to in Scotland and great attention to the way they are prepared. I'd give it 3 Michelin forks (not a star but darn close).
We had a really good time and I would wholeheartedly recommend Rocpool.
