And I’m not taking the Piss, they say one of the standards for a place with a Michelin star is that it is worth visiting a given country for said restaurant, on that standard this place makes the grade, everything a proper pub in Scotland...More

We were visiting my sister in Edinburgh when we decided to pop into the Roseleaf for some food. Being a Friday night I expected it to be uncomfortably busy but it was fine and we were seated quickly. The menu isn’t exhaustive but everything sounded...More

Great place, really interesting decor. We walked in without a booking and therefore had to sit at the bar, but this wasn't an issue and worked out nicely. Prices very reasonable, good service and top food. The haggis benedict was superb, a right touch!

First off, let me state that the Roseleaf is absolutely somewhere you should go. However, I have one specific and fundamental bone to pick... We booked a table for a Sunday lunch, mid afternoon time. Arrive, sit down, nice table. First comment from the waitress...More

Hey Will, my only response is the most glaringly obvious one that if you want something, ask for it. If we were to ask every single person who booked on a Sunday if they wanted a roast then it would incur a fair bit of...More

First ever time here and left content, rather than fully blown away. The place itself is really nice inside and clearly has a very strong local following. It was hard to get a table at 12.30 on a Thursday. Booking is therefore probably advised. The...More

Wouldn't tend to pigeon hole our clientele as hipsters but at times (maybe the time you visited) they can come and enjoy our offering too. All food is freshly prepared and as well sourced as possible so don't focus on pricing alone. Also glad you...More

Visited this place with my friends during our trip to Edinburgh. I had their "leafer" breakfast, it was pretty good and I would recommend it. The coffee was mediocre. If I was nearby this place I would consider it an option.

Okaydokey, thanks for coming in and sorry to hear the coffee was only ok as we do use great beans and aim to hit the caffiene fix where it needs to be hit!!!
