|This was the view as I walked across South Bridge to the Balmoral Hotel|
We opted for the tasting menu and matching wines.
Unfortunately when having a 7 course meal with matching wines, after about glass 4 I become more festive and less focused on making valuable points about each of the courses.
So enjoy my pictures and know that every course was incredible. (Wines in italics)
