Was here about a week ago for lunch. We ordered the Christmas dinner and a Cajun chicken burger! The burger was absolutely amazing and will definitely order again. The Christmas dinner was also very good, all that was missing was some nice honey glazed parsnips! The service was there when you wanted it and the drinks were ice cold! We...

Wonderful food at this establishment, despite a fryer not working. Small range of starters and main courses, but just divine. Good food served hot with great service. Would recommend and will call again.

Booked a table for nine adults for lunch which they could happily accommodate, despite having another large family group in celebrating a birthday. The menu was fairly impressive for what is slightly upmarket pub fare. Starters of black pudding and bacon salad with poached egg went down well, as did the haggis fritters. Stroganoff, fish and pies all went down...

Lunched here with a friend and the menu choice was great, prices reasonable for good quality food. The staff are, mainly, friendly, professional and approachable. I did check the menu to see if I could order a smile from the waitress but sadly it wasn't on the menu and she wasn't for giving any away! Other than that, great.

We stopped of at the Riccarton Inn following a long walk along the delightful Water's of Leith pathway. The Riccarton is a modern themed pub with lots of little alcoves in which you can hunker down and enjoy a well deserved pint. The service was both quick and pleasant and the food was very well priced and prepared. My wife...
