Visited for the first time 2 nights ago. Food very good quality and like that some of the options offer you a small portion. I had small fish and chips and it filled my plate and stomach too. The only slight negative I would say is that you need to book up in advance and also there was a long... More

We went to the Riccarton Inn with our daughter, who's at university in Edinburgh, for lunch. It's a very nice pub, with a good selection of real ales and friendly staff, but the real highlight was the food. We all had the halloumi wrap, and it was simply one of the best pub meals I've ever had: fresh, tasty and... More

This pub had a refurb over a year ago and you can tell. Well presented with both bar and seating areas. Nice atmosphere on evening. We had steak burger and haggis and lemon soul. Very good. Glad they kept curry sauce in separate dish for the fish, would have ruined it. This pub is worth a visit if you are... More

Enjoyed lunch here today with friends and family. On arrival we were greeted with a warm welcome. Advised on the best place to sit with a buggy. The menu was varied with lots of choice to keep everyone happy. I felt it was taking a while for the food to arrive but when it did it was obviously freshly cooked... More

Been here for lunch several times now since new owner took over and gave the place an extensive make over. Good choice of food on the menu and a good selection of ales and whisky. Family friendly and the staff take time to ensure you are getting good service.

I have eaten at the Riccarton several times in the last few months. The food and the service have been really good at every visit . I have tried a number of dishes from the menu and they have all been well cooked, really tasty, hot and a decent portion. The duck dish on the festive menu was particularly good,... More

Super cute little pub. We stopped in as the restaurants on Campus had all closed for the evening. Quaint little pub with good food. Service was super fast but we were one of the only tables in there as well so this might be the reason. Great place for a quick dinner!
