Popped in last Monday for lunch And was seated quickly and given helpful advice on the wine and cocktail list which was vast to choose from. I had the beef burger which was one of the best I've tried in the city which is a feat in such a stagnated market. Staff were friendly but not overbearing which is perfect... More

We ate at Hamiltons last night (20.5.17) for my friend's birthday. We had originally booked for 6 people but at the last minute two more people turned up. The Hamilton's staff could not have been more helpful and accommodating, insisting that it was no trouble even though it was obvious that they were very busy. We had cocktails to start... More

We stopped at this restaurant for a brunch as it was close to our rented place. It was a good spot to have a chilled out late breakfast or lunch. I had the full Scottish breakfast with eggs, sausages, bacon, haggis, black pudding, etc. I would say that it was pretty good. Though, my friend's pancake was a bit burn... More

Just popped into Hamilton's again. I say again, as this happens to be a local haunt for us and I've yet to give it a review. Hamilton's is exactly what you need it to be for a casual / chilled dinner and bar... Based on tonight alone, we can't fault it. Staff have been great since the moment we walked... More

We stopped in for a light snack based upon the recommendation of a local. We weren't disappointed by the quality of celeriac soup, which came with great local bread. Service was lackadaisical, but acceptable. A solid restaurant for a quick bite if you're not concerned about the quick part.

I popped into Hamiltons after a day at work on a recommendation. I was treated a little sharply and when they realised I was a solo well the look on the faces was a pure picture. Oh dear, no big tips. I was sat in the corner, naughty schoolboy style and it just had a very poor feel to it.... More

Just been in for a quick bite to eat. Went far the burger which was very good. Well cooked, seasoned and huge patty. The twice cooked chips where crispy however a fresh oil would have made the meal perfect. Definitely worth a visit 💪

Visited for dinner on a Friday night with friends. It was very busy and we were lucky to get a table, despite this we were seated quickly and had staff taking our food and drinks orders in no time! The food was excellent for the price, tasted great and was presented very well. There was a good selection but the... More

Staying in Stockbridge & Dean Village

Neighbourhood Profile
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 bistros, gastropubs, coffee and antique shops, boutiques and delis and at the Sunday farmers' market. A pleasant ten-minute walk away, along a leafy riverside path beside the gurgling Water of Leith, lies Dean Village. This sleepy neighborhood of medieval half-timbered houses still retains much of the village feel it had when watermills plied their trade here. Beyond, the wooded riverside path feels even more remote as it climbs to the sculpture gardens of the Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art.
