We had booked for 1pm but realised that we were going to be later so phoned ahead - no problem as long as we were there before 2pm which we were. Food was lovely and the clootie dumpling was a lovely memory of the past.

This is a great little hidden gem of a restaurant. On the top of the cliffs above the wonderful Auchmithie beach (well worth a visit) sits the But'n'Ben. The food is traditional - no haute cuisine here. Specialities include smoked Arbroath caddie pancake and fish...More
