Décor is cool and modern, with wooden floors, mood lighting and contemporary colours. And the luxury outdoor area complete with heating and lighting is perfect for romantic al-fresco dining or cheeky cocktails on a fine summer evening.
For menu-lingerers, Figs offers the perfect chance to dither. As your mouth waters, you’ll wonder whether to kick off with Arbroath smokie and cream cheese pâté, dill butter and hot thick crispy toast; old-fashioned potted crab with grilled ciabatta; or local goats’ cheese, leek-and-chilli risotto cake with leeks in white wine and deep-fried leeks. Or perhaps you’d prefer Scottish salmon fishcakes with lemon butter sauce or homemade scotch egg with salad cream and watercress?
Options get no easier as you ponder your main course. Will it be Whitby crab cakes with watercress and chilli jelly? Breaded scampi served in yesterday’s newspaper? Beer-battered Whitby haddock with chunky chips, creamy minted mushy peas and homemade tartare sauce? Then again, the seared peppered beef fillet with rocket, roasted shallots, new potatoes and pine nuts sounds equally irresistible.
