“Nice on a hot sunny day”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 18, 2013

Good for sitting out side. The food is good and there are a reasonable selection of drinks. The service is a bit sketchy though, the staff seem happier to interact with each other rather than customers.

LeithBeerCo, Manager at The Leith Beer Company, responded to this review, July 20, 2013
I'm sorry you found the service to be a bit sketchy when you visited. I can only assume (and hope) that you expected table service in the beer terrace. Unfortunately we do not offer table service for outside tables and there is a sign explaining this policy on the front of the bar. If this was not the case and you were genuinely ignored by staff busy talking amongst themselves then I can only offer my sincere apologies and would like to welcome you back to right that wrong and give you a 20% discount. I hope this is a little misunderstanding and that we will see you again in the future. Please contact me via here and I will be more than happy to arrange a discount for your next visit.

“Great service staff , food let it down badly”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2013 via mobile

I have to say that the staff were totally lovely , friendly and enthusiastic. Starter was good although salad was mournfully droopy. The main courses were bad - droopy salad with inedible burger which did not smell fresh, the steak pie looked like a curry with a bit of puff pastry floating on the top served with stringy cheese mash potatoe which solidified into a plasticky mush.
The atmosphere was good , people looked happy - I would go back for a drink , but I don't
Think I would eat there again

“Fast, fresh food.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2013

Me and my girlfriend came here for a bit to eat one evening. Genuine friendly service, you can tell the staff enjoy working there. Food was original, fresh and tasty. Mistake was made with our order which was rectified in minutes with no hassle. I have returned many times for drinks in the spacious beergarden, and they allow dogs. What more could you ask for?!

“Good food at good price.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 14, 2013

In a company of six on a Saturday night called at this bar/restaurant. Not booked and although quite busy were promptly seated by staff moving tables and chairs to accommodate the party.
Ordered 6 drinks including bottle of house red and then 6 main courses with 2 sides of onion rings. All meals freshly cooked and promptly delivered.
Good atmosphere added to good food and service made for an enjoyable evening. Total bill was a very reasonable £82. Will be back.
