When it comes to eating out in Edinburgh you are spoilt for choice. The range is vast ... from cheap and cheerful cafes and High Street fast food to very 'posh nosh' ... usually a little too pricey. However there are a large number of places that may not be modern and full of gleaming glass ... or heavily adorned with velvet and antiques ... yet produce great food at reasonable prices.
Emma found this one one for us all to enjoy lunch at, on DD's birthday.
Not sure why an ironing board and the other bits were suspended from the ceiling ...maybe for atmosphere ?? ... or to worry those who have a little too much to drink lol.
They were friendly and allowed the boys ... and their push chair ... to come in. They didn't rush us and actually had two high chairs. Who would have thought it ... in a Pub!! Their menu was not the normal one found in such places and sounded quite yummy but in addition they had a 'British Sausage Menu'. You chose the type you fancied and they served it with Mashed Potato and lashings of Red Onion gravy ...or you could have them as 'Toad in the Hole'.
Just to make your taste buds tingle I will name but a few ...Cumberland ...Lincolnshire Smokey ... Venison, Juniper and Gin ... Spicy Lamb and Apricot and a Veggie Carrot and Parsnip one.
Even though I was quite full from my Lincolnshire Smokey and mash, I had to have a 'pud' ...well we all did ... I chose Banoffee Pie and I was not disappointed at all.
In fact I could find nothing wrong with the meal at all, which ...if you ask DD ... is a miracle. I always find fault with something ... well several things usually and I get annoyed at spending money on a meal that I could have cooked better myself. I tend to point out the things I feel are poor and then everyone I'm with gets fed up with me moaning ....funny thing is the more expensive ... the more faults I find and the longer I moan.
I would like to add that we ...well I ... had several vodkas and lemonade and became a little warm and relaxed ...lol
Take Care xx
