This place is a real gem. From the moment we walked down the steps it felt lovely, then we were greeted by the staff! We instantly loved it. It was a wait for the table but well worth it. The atnosphere was brilliant. A good...More

Great find as a result of review on trip advisor and they were spot on. The place is small and located in a basement so could be easily missed but definitely worth a visit if you like cheeses, meats and pickles. Arrived early (4.30) on...More

Pickles is a nice place for aperitifs or dinners but also for a convivial moment with special people. The place is not big so take into consideration that is not suitable for a big number of people. I would suggest not more than 6. You...More

malls and utilitarian housing, Broughton and Calton
have long been transitional neighbourhoods with a
mixed identity. It’s here that Edinburgh’s gay village
found a home in the 1980s. But gay culture is anything
but overt along bustling epicentre Broughton Street;
even if polished pubs, hip bistros, smart delis and
art galleries all speak of affluent good taste. The

Dear Claire, I'm afraid that we have a very limited food offering and just serve pates, meat and cheese platters. You can find our offerings (drinks and food) on our website - Sorry, Jonny
