RATING: Food 4; Atmosphere 4.5; Service 4; Drinks (not applicable); Website 3.5
It was a stunning day with a cloudless, blue sky. The three bridges crossing the River Forth at Queensferry were beginning to emerge from the mist.
There was a chill in the air – it was mid-February – and so a warming cuppa was called for. The Orocco Pier is a boutique, 12-room hotel with adjoining restaurant/coffee shop.
It is stylish, has morning papers and a live TV news feed, comfortable seats and a sensational view. We were fortunate enough to select a window table and you can see the view from our table in the picture.
Service was slick and my granddaughter plumped for a bacon roll. They listened to her diet concerns and delivered. Our tea was piping hot and serviced in a china pot.
We enjoyed the experience and will be tempted back to savour some of the food which was being served. The fish looked particularly good.
