Fish suppers, black pudding suppers or hamburger suppers, I've always been impressed by The Tailend! I came here a lot when I lived in Edinburgh and was pleased to know it was still as good when I came back this time. Highly recommended!

their fish and chips is the best in edinburgh. The fish is so succulent and if batter is not for you the breaded is perfect as well . the calamari is a little weird but scampi perfect .

Has no link to the superb TAILEND of St. Andrew's, but tries to look the same. So don't expect a lot. Simple fish and chips place with takeaways.
