A bagpiper and entertainer Barbara Bryceland were on hand to mark the official ribbon cutting ceremony at Christie’s, where customers can sample a selection of traditional dishes as smaller portions.

The newest addition to the town’s restaurant scene, which launched on Wednesday night, is based in the Manor Street premises formerly home to Italian favourite Amodo Mio.
