We haven’t eaten a meal at the just launched Shore Grill & Fish House in North Queensferry. But we can tell you that the views are delicious.
The restaurant is part of the recently refurbished Queensferry Hotel, located on the headland above the historic town of North Queensferry.
Floor to ceiling windows run the length of the bar and restaurant giving panoramic views of the Queensferry Crossing across the Forth.
The Bridge is a jaw-dropping feat of engineering. When it opens to traffic and lights up at night, we can only imagine that it will look even more stunning.
The Shore: room with a view
If you like a view with your food then it is certainly on the menu at the Shore Grill & Fish House.
The new restaurant marks the completion of the first phase of a £15m investment in the local landmark hotel.
It is owned by the Newcastle-based Cairn Hotel Group who are also responsible for the award-winning Twenty Princes Street and Juniper cocktail bar in the heart of Edinburgh city centre.
As well as offering great views, the interior design also references the Shore’s location. A curved and carved wooden ceiling looks like waves while gleaming brass details pay homage to the other world famous bridges on The Shore’s doorstep.
As we mentioned in an earlier blog, the menus are online now.
Appealing options include short rib croquettas with smoked garlic aioli, fruits de mer, burrata and heritage tomatoes with pesto, apple mint and smoked whisky salt.
Stuart Douglas, General Manager, said, ‘We are really excited about The Shore and our launch is well timed to capitalise on the huge influx of visitors that the opening of the Queensferry Crossing will attract.
‘We are confident that the new restaurant and investment in the hotel facilities will have a wide appeal to both locals and visitors to the area; capitalising on the hotel’s unrivalled location and views of the Forth and the bridges. Our investment is also good news for the local economy, as we anticipate employing over 100 people when work is complete.’
