Dropped in after a walk on the beach, not knowing the area at all. Lovely little place with delicious food. Had a lovely duck and plum salad and my boyfriend had a black pudding roll. The chips are the die for. Hidden gem.

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 neighbourhoods. 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
