Really excellent food and service: so many dishes looked excellent on the menu, settled for two roast beefs, roast pheasant (wrapped in bacon and stuffed with haggis!) and a venison pie. Dog friendly and very accommodating for coeliacs as well. Super pub!

Yesterday I was there with some friends for the Sunday Roast. The pub is cozy and large. We ordered some beers (which were actually great!), come goat cheese crostini (very very good!), and 7 sunday roasts (three venisons, four beefs). The meat was good, probably...More

I'm always impressed that the ground floor/basement pubs in Edinburgh manage to do such a good job and this place is no exception. Loads of good beer on draft and food looked decent too. Doesn't set the world alight but would definitely recommend to all

Spoilt for choice in Stockbridge, this was our first time eating here although we've visited for drinks previously. Don't be put off by the rather gloomy interior that greets you as you step down from the street. We were warmly welcomed by the front of...More

Met some friends here a couple weeks back. Had never been in before but my friends go all the time. I can see why. It's a cosy basement pub with a good atmosphere and didn't feel too crowded even on a Saturday night. Decent selection...More

Love coming to the Antiquary for a pint but never properly tried the menu other than breakfast stuff. We went for dinner last night and can't wait to go back and try more! We got the cow pie, fish and chips and the venison burger...More

The dictionary definition of "Antiquary" is someone who collects antiques. It is also the name of a very old basement pub in St Stephen Street in the Stockbridge district of Edinburgh. As a bit of an Edinburgh antique myself I was unaware of this establishment...More

Stockbridge & Dean Village
Just downhill of New Town and attractively straddling
a river near the elegant Royal Botanic Garden, it’s
small wonder that Stockbridge became one of the city’s
first hip neighborhoods. It’s now one of Edinburgh’s
most desirable, though many bohemian touches have
fallen away as its residents have matured and the area
has gentrified. Some second-hand shops cling on, but
mostly residents display refined tastes in basement
