A really nice pub in a beautiful location right by the canal. We went for dinner on a Sunday evening and the food was lovely apart from the French onion souffle! It was the strangest 'soufflé' I have ever had. It tasted ok but it was wet and squidgy inside and I didn't finish eating it as I wasn't sure...

> A spur of the moment idea to go out for lunch today saw my husband and I back at the Bridge Inn at Ratho. This is one of our favourite 'eating out' places, not just because we live fairly near but because the food, the service, the helpfulness and friendliness of all the staff is absolutely first class. >...

This restaurant would not be out of place in any major city. Gorgeous location by the canal, with locally grown produce. Presentation and quality were flawless with friendly and relaxed atmosphere. The menu was Scottish with a twist, so it was very up to date and amazing flavours.

We took the trip to Ratho for a birthday lunch and we couldn't be more pleased with the experience. The food and service were brilliant, the setting delightful and Jackie was the perfect host. Took a lovely stroll along the canal after a memorable three course meal. Well worth the trip and we'll definitely be back.

The meal, the staff and the atmosphere were all fantastic. The one small downbit was trying to manage a wheelchair down a rather steep drive. Once we were in the staff excelled. They treated my elderly parents with patience and understanding that at times they did not deserve. The food both fish and meat dishes were beautifully fresh. The cheese...

Lovely fresh food much of which was made on premises or locally sourced. Pleasant staff. Nice atmosphere and ambiance. Both had fish and chips, it was DELICIOUS! Fish was probably a bit small for a large portion, have been before and portion larger. Small portion on offer, thankful I didn't choose this option😁. Will defo return.

Hubby booked this as we (he) had to cancel our planned day out in Edinburgh....in the past I have had some good and bad experiences here so I was going with some trepidation and not massively looking forward to it, if I am honest. We were moved to the main restaurant so that was a plus as we were initially...

More known to the locals as a place to eat, the Bridge Inn has four rooms on the second floor. They guaranteed us a king size bed since they claimed all of their rooms have them. Ours we definitely a queen. The room is quite small though modern with a recently updated bath. Service is extremely friendly, prices are reasonable...

Stayed en route to the highlands. Very comfortable room and bed, excellent bathroom. We were lucky enough to sit outside and watch the canal boats early evening followed by a tasty and fast dinner in the restaurant. Really excellent breakfast and we're on our way. Good value and good quality.

From the moment we arrived to when we left, the staff could not be more welcoming or do enough for us. The rooms are very nice and comfortable, shower is great and the restaurant is lovely. We ate breakfast lunch and dinner, and every meal was full of flavour and plenty of it. Location next to the Union Canal is...

Good morning, Thanks for taking the time to write this wonderful review of our rooms, food and service. The location of the Inn ensures guests have the tranquility of a village setting yet a small distance to the city of Edinburgh. The best of both! We hope to welcome you back soon. Kind regards, Jackie Fergus

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Situated in a stunning and picturesque setting on the banks of the Union Canal, the Bridge Inn is a unique pub and restaurant. The Bridge Inn is a wonderful place to visit, to taste some of our freshly cooked food, try some cask ales or sample from our expanding wine list, and enjoy a warm and friendly atmosphere and welcome. Wherever possible we use seasonal, Scottish, fresh, local produce, and everything is freshly prepared. We grow our own herbs and vegetables in a walled garden slightly along the canal from the pub. We have a small herd of saddleback pigs, and our menus often feature delicious home-produced pork on the menu. We use locally-shot game when it is in season. We always have a range of cask ales from breweries which we know throughout Scotland. We have had lots of fun selecting our wine list, which we have tried to make one of the best value wine lists in Scotland. And we currently have on a selection of over 20 single malts from around this beautiful country. We have now finished an ambitious renovation project that has transformed the Bridge Inn. We have created an atmospheric country pub in the 18th century part of the building with open fires and comfortable seating. We have altered the upstairs to create 4 beautiful and unique en-suite bedrooms. They each have a different feel, but each has its own view of the canal and surrounding countryside. The Bridge Inn won Best B & B by Visit Scotland's Thistle Awards for the East of Scotland. Finally our bistro alongside the canal has been upgraded and we have added a terrace alongside the building to make the most of our unique setting. ... more   less
