Took the Mrs here for a bite to eat, and was sadly disappointed... It's just seriously lacking in any atmosphere, and the food is equally as bland. Staff seemed nice enough, but the service was average. The cocktails are over priced, and what you would expect to pay on George Street not Morningside! In summary whilst it's inoffensive it's certainly... More

Myself and partner had a wonderful experience at this little gem situated at the bottom of Morningside. The staff were knowledgeable on both the food and cocktail menu. I went with the recommended dish which was the braised shin of beef, it was indeed very tasty! I will recommend!

My other half and myself wandered into this bar/restaurant and had a wonderful evening. Great food and great service. The waitress, known locally as Marlene was especially chatty and friendly. Highly recommended.

Just popped in to meet friends for drinks early on a Friday evening. Ended up eating as well. Good selection of draft beers. Reasonable priced menu for the part of town. I had a delicious burger and two other guys had fish and chips. The wives all went for the veggy cottage pie which unfortunately all arrived a little cold.... More

I had been in on two occasions before for a drink and snacks and found the staff (a husband and wife team) to be extremely friendly and attentive, and the bar to have a warm ambiance. The... More

I took old friends who now reside in the USA and who I had not seen for some years to the Hermitage Bar last night for dinner. Excellent food, great service, friendly staff and very reasonably priced. I will be back.
