With an interest in the essence of quality and sustainability, The Witchery is dedicated to celebrating the treasures of our Scotland. With an unwavering commitment, we collaborate with Scotland's finest suppliers, handpicking premium ingredients that carry both excellence and ethical integrity, all destined to grace your plate.

In a symphony of flavours and a testament to our devotion to perfection, our tantalising oysters are a testament to this philosophy. From the crystal-clear waters off the west coast of Scotland, grown sustainably in the sound of Cumbrae, the succulent gems are nurtured within their very own oyster farm, a legacy established in 1995. 

Also on our menu, you’ll find our shellfish bisque, made using roasted langoustines, langoustine stock, fresh tomatoes, root vegetables, zest of orange and saffron. You can also delight in our delicious seafood pie on our 2-course lunch menu, salmon, hake, mussels, and leeks, cooked in a creamy seafood velouté and topped with buttery mashed potato.

The Witchery’s 2-Course Lunch is available 7 days a week from noon - 4:30pm, and only £29.50 per person. Book now and experience decadent dishes

These delicacies, nurtured by the natural purity of their aquatic habitat, offer a taste of the untamed, briny essence that Scotland's coastline is known for. With every succulent bite, you are transported to the rugged shores, the gentle waves, and the sun-kissed cliffs that define this enchanting region.
