We went to The Black Fox for a late dinner on a Sunday and loved the burgers there. The service was quick and efficient and the atmosphere was really nice.

Long weekend away. Found this through trip advisor and decided to give it a go as it seemed like our thing. It was a treat. Great food, great drinks, great atmosphere and a great time, highly recommend.

We saw the Black Fox on our first day in Leith but weren’t sure if it was open because the front is so unassuming. Well not only is it open but it is some of the best vegetarian food we’ve had. Excellent Haloumi burger, sweet...More

This is a quality pub with a good selection of draught and bottles beer. They have a good food menu, primarily burgers, which are gorgeous. If you find yourself on Leith Walk, this place is a must!

Thanks dude Yeah it's annoying there's no "Load of rubbish" button for our fans to click on. Take note Tripadvisor! Kind Regards Richard Haigh General Manager

The eats were solid and the brews were good if you like IPA styles. They also offer flights of single malts, though the selection would not particularly interest serious students of the art.

Such an awful experience. That day when we arrived at Edinburgh for the first day, we were starved to death. A man came to us asking us to seat by the toilet. He asked us to wait and he would come for us to order....More

Hello Candy The waiter did not forget you, he was simply rushed completely off his feet and was asking you to wait while he served the other tables that arrived before you did. I think you'll find most restaurants do this. You don't get special...More
