Brought some American friends to South Queensferry for lunch. Beautiful day and the Railbridge was perfect for us: terrific views of ALL the bridges, good food (we all recommend the Cullen Skink) and great service. Reasonably priced. We'll come back for a more extensive meal...More

Always stop here for lunch en route to our hotel, friendly staff, always busy. Great varied menu, soups, sandwiches, main meals something for everyone, and a cake selection to drool over. Great views of the bridges, well worth a visit
