Lovely pub feel and dog friendly to boot. Food is decent and reasonably priced for location, quality and service. Been there twice and on both occasions the food was warm rather than hot (except for chips), and a touch greasy. The lunch time and dinner...More

Being in Edinburgh was manic so we decided to walk down to Stockbridge where we used to go before (kids) we found a seat which was lucky on a sat night. Nice wine and menu was reasonable so had a bite to eat.

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
