Visited Whiskers yesterday for a lovely Sunday Roast. Choice of lamb or beef. Food was really good as was the service. Lovely leisurely pace which is how Sunday lunch should be. Tables well spaced and sanitiser in full view felt very safe.

2nd time here, and still haven't got round to trying the food (think I'll wait until everything has settled down and try then). Opted for the BTG menu (nice touch is it's on the board as well as in the menu - assume covid reasons)....More

Having been to Whiskers for both lunch and dinner recently, I have to say that it was quite impressive. The food is very good and is served by friendly and attentive staff. The restaurant has enough room for diners to be well spaced out while...More

Stockbridge & Dean Village
Just downhill of New Town and attractively straddling
a river near the elegant Royal Botanic Garden, it’s
small wonder that Stockbridge became one of the city’s
first hip neighbourhoods. It’s now one of Edinburgh’s
most desirable, though many bohemian touches have
fallen away as its residents have matured and the area
has gentrified. Some second-hand shops cling on, but
mostly residents display refined tastes in basement
