The Foyer Restaurant, Crown Street, Aberdeen
The Foyer Restaurant serves some delicious meals and has an extensive range of coffees and a scrumptious set of desserts. It's a real pleasure to eat in its relaxing and airy setting and best of all the profit from the restaurant and bar goes to support the Aberdeen Foyer's work with young people.
The Aberdeen Foyer is a charity which helps to prevent and reduce homelessness and unemployment amongst people aged 16 - 25 through supporting them with accommodation, training, education and employment opportunities.
The restaurant opened in 1999 and is seen by many as one of the best restaurants in Aberdeen: it certainly gets AboutAberdeen's seal of approval. The restaurant serves some of the finest food in Aberdeen by some of the friendliest and most efficient staff in the grandest of settings.

My new novel:
The Aberdeen skies are under attack from an enemy jet. It is spilling a strange yellow smoke. Minutes later, people start killing each other.
Former Royal Air Force Regiment Gunner Jason Harper witnesses this and then his wife, Pippa, telephones him, shouting that she needs him. They then get cut off. He sets straight out, unprepared for the nightmare that unfolds during his journey. Everyone seems to want to kill him.
Along the way, he pairs up with fellow survivor Imogen. But she enjoys killing the living dead far too much. Will she kill Jason in her blood thirst? Or will she hinder his journey through this zombie filled dystopian landscape to find his pregnant wife?
The Fence is the first in this series of post-apocalyptic military survival thrillers from the torturous mind of local horror and science fiction novel writer C.G. Buswell.

The Foyer Menu
There are two menus: the special lunch menu with lighter options which changes frequently and the seasonal menu. Both use the freshest of ingredients and all dishes are cooked fresh. Prices are reasonable too with generous portions. For example you can have soup and freshly homemade bread for under £4, chargrilled swordfish with cannellini beans, courgettes and lemon salad in a romesco sauce for £13 or banana, butterscotch crepe with peanut brittle ice-cream for £5. Do try their creamy hot chocolate drink with layers of Cadbury's flake, it's choccie heaven. All the hot drinks are served with a homemade tablet sweet which is a cross between fudge and toffee.
There are several vegetarian options such as tabbouleh salad and beetroot tzatziki and gruyere with wild mushroom risotto and toasted seeds. Children have their own menu which includes smoked haddock with mash and poached egg or pepperoni and tomato penne pasta
The napkins are proper linen and the crockery and cutlery are top quality. Seating is comfortable and there's plenty of space between tables. The restaurant and bar are all on one floor and there is disabled access to the building. There is a disabled toilet and mother and baby changing facilities. Highchairs are available.
Tuesday through to Saturday from 10 am until 11 pm.

Have you seen my beautiful golden retriever Lynne out and about in Aberdeen? Ask her for a high-five! She's a Bravehound PTSD assistance dog, so we'll often be in shops, restaurants, and the cinema together.
We've written a book where I talk about growing up in Aberdeen and then joining the army to be a medic and nurse, and developing military Post Traumatic Stress Disorder.
I also talk about losing my son to suicide and the therapy I have had at Royal Cornhill Hospital and grief support groups in Aberdeen.
The author, Damien Lewis, said of Lynne:
"A powerful account of what one dog means to one man on his road to recovery. Both heart-warming and life-affirming. Bravo Chris and Lynne. Bravo Bravehound."
