Fun Stuff

What’s your favourite restaurant?

In Edinburgh I like Olorosso for its simple but interesting food, while in London its the Oxo Tower.

What’s the most you’ve ever spent on dinner for two?

When I left RBS it kindly paid for a meal for my wife and I. It cost £300 at Sketch in London. This was far too high a price to pay for a trendy, people-spotting experience.

What’s your favourite band?

U2. All their albums are great, especially How To Dismantle An Atomic Bomb. I have been lucky enough to see them in concert twice.

What’s your favourite tipple?

Red wine – a Wolf Blass President Collection Shiraz from the New World.

Do you have any hobbies and interests?

I like golf – I’m trying to improve my handicap of 20 – and am also an armchair Manchester United supporter. Another interest is exploring coffee and tea shops in various areas.
