“Beef was delicious”
Reviewed March 22, 2013

A quirky little bar and restaurant in Leith. The atmosphere is quite lively and I loved the music which was just loud enough to be noticed and indeed some people at the bar were singing along and occasionally dancing. The Ace of blades was lovely and my only criticism is that I would have liked a little more gravy. The desert sounded great, as I love chocolate, but the Choclickflix was a little disappointing. Next time I will try the Rumble in the Crumble. There will definitely be a next time.

“Fantastic afternoon tea”
Reviewed March 18, 2013

Myself, my sister and my mum visited Roseleaf for a mad hatters tea party! I had to book in advance and pay a deposit. The staff were wonderful as soon as we got there and offered us a choice of hat to wear which was a lot of fun. The cocktails were served in teapots which was very cool and there was a good selection to choose from. The food was also delicious and there was loads. I would highly recommend!

“Different”
Reviewed March 18, 2013

Went to the Roseleaf on Saturday night. Menu is not huge but food was lovely - especially the home made bread (and shortbread!). Good atmosphere and staff pleasant. My only downside was I had ordered cauliflower soup and instead of advising me they had run out, they just brought mushroom soup without checking that this was acceptable. Thankfully I love mushroom soup and it was delicious but if they don't have what you have ordered, it's only courtesy to let you know.

“Bloomin' lovely”
Reviewed March 12, 2013 via mobile

What a pleasure to visit a venue that's got everything right. Delicious food, great atmosphere, wonderful staff and great value.
From the bloody Mary's and full fry up to the cream egg served in an egg cup. Witty tasty and memorable.
