We came for a long weekend to meet friends and had a very warm welcome from all the staff and had excellent brunch and evening meals at excellent value. We did have a laugh with the girls who served us. Thoroughly recommend

Had brunch here with a 5 and a 3 year old. The staff were really friendly and accommodating so that we all had exactly what we wanted whether on the menu or not! My egg florentine was delicious and I think good value. Great area to explore around there with the botanic gardens just a stones throw.

As it was a Sunday they had a roast section on the menu and thats what we went for. The food was incredible and again despite being busy... 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.
