The Shore Bar is one of those places where you can relax amidst the history of the Port of Leith. A great selection of bar foods, or even wider selection of fabulous meals in the restaurant. Scottish craft beers and an eye watering selection of whiskies too. The staff are uber friendly and helpful. Twice a week there's live jazz... More

My parents and I stopped by the Shore bar for lunch before dropping me off at Edinburgh airport. I was taking an early evening flight so wanted to enjoy a proper hot meal at lunch since it was going to be M&S sandwiches for me on the flight. We each ordered the special lunch menu at GBP 15 each for... More

This was our second visit in 2 months, because we enjoyed our meal so much the first time. The restaurant is small and next to the bar, the feel is old fashion city pub dark wood paneling and mirrors, situated next to the canal in the old town of Leith. Great seafood on the menu, though not exclusively. Staff are... More

Treated to a meal here from my bosses for my birthday. We were sat at a lovely table by the window, the waiting staff were lovely. Oysters were amazing! Will definitely be back for them at some point. Mains were brilliant, my monkfish was the best I've ever had. All in all love this place. Thanks for a lovely night!

A great bar / restaurant with exceptional service and food. You are on the Leith Shore but inside you could be in France or Belgium. There is a separate restaurant section but the food is equally good in the bar.

I love this place. I come to Edinburgh every year and always come back. The menu is honest. The beer is well kept. They have music. I said the menu was honest, but the food is beautifully presented and an absolute gem. Never disappointed and the fish couldn't be fresher. One of my favourites. Anywhere.
