The menu was varied and sounded great but some of the food seemed precooked such as the mash! The batter of the fish wasn’t cooked through. The staff were excellent very attentive and helpful.

Arrived a little early, got a few drinks whilst waiting for rest of out party. Staff were attentive without being overbearing. Menu was varied and specials can’t be recommended enough. All four of us had different meals, all for of us were extremelyhappy with our choice, albeit with some food envy

To find something special in Edinburgh, you really have to look outside the city center, and No,1 the grange is worth the trip. It has a lovely, cozy atmosphere, nice service and wine menu (and I am picky about wine!), I had the monkfish which was cooked perfectly. I believe they change the menu quite regularly, which is always a plus for me, so I can go back and try something new. I live in Leith where there is always some hipster establishment opening up that is all flash and no substance - No.1 The grange was a breath of fresh air.

This is a gastro pub, but one with a good atmosphere as well as decent food. Really tasty Sunday lunch - my only complaints are that it was not terribly hot and the Yorkshire pudding was not great. The staff were lovely and made us feel totally at home. Would definitely recommend.

Hi There Laurie,
Thanks for the review and were sorry the heat and the yorkies weren't up to scratch. We have spoken with our head chef on this matter and can assure you that our Yorkshire puddings (Which is a pivotal part of the roast) will now be cooked fresh to order, on Sunday they were out of this world! please say hi when you pop back in. All the very best. Danny & Ryan

Visited No. 1 The Grange for a lunch after seeing their amazing meals in their Instagram page.

It’s a nice, well designed gastro pub with a good selection of drinks and good service.

The food menu mixes traditional pub style food with high end, creative cookery. The menu is priced very reasonably for the level of food on offer - I would even suggest it’s on low side!

I had pork belly which was magnificent. The meat really melted away and crackling was a delicious, salty, crunchy delight. My partner had an applewood cheese and bacon burger. It was massive and again very flavourful, really nothing to complain about.

Would definitely visit again
