Popped into the Leith Beer Company for a quick pint. Some nice beers on offer and a warm, welcoming environment. Lots of food come out through the back which looked very nice indeed.

We ate here recently on an overnight to Leith. The burgers both beef and chicken were delicious. Staff were very friendly and all reasonably priced.

2 Sirloins and a bottle of Tempranillo Spanish red for £27, seemed half the price of nearby King's Wauk, and we weren't disappointed. Wonderful meal, good vegetables and it didn't break the bank. Coffee for £1 when you order a dessert!

I have been here a few times, but the customer service has gone right downhill. Staff look as if they don't want to be there. The place was very quiet and yet the service took ages to serve us up at the back. I asked for no dressing on my side salad, guess what, it came with a dressing. I... More

We were going to V Deep so decided to pop in for a drink before heading to the restaurant. I have been here a few times for drinks before but was nicely surprised by the prices.

Came for a few drinks with a colleague whilst visiting the area on business. Nice wines available for decent value, very friendly staff. Decided to stay for dinner, unfortunately food was not great (freezer to microwave / fryer type fare) but would return for drinks and to sit outside and enjoy the view of the water of Leith

Hi KateinUK, Thank you for visiting and taking the time to review us. I'm glad that you enjoyed our selection of decent value wines and found our staff friendly, just sorry that your dining experiment was not great. I hope that you do return soon to enjoy a glass of wine (or two) while enjoying the view, and if you... More

We're a fun place to eat and drink, dog friendly, kids welcome, table service for food, great selection of beers on draught, wines, bottled ciders and beers, and all the usual spirits. When the weather permits (which is not often!) we have a large outside seating area in the front. We look forward to welcoming you and your friends.
