Places to head for a cheap lunchtime meal


In a good restaurant, there's nothing more satisfying than eating off a set menu that's the same standard as the a la carte, but saves you some buck. Here's a bunch of places with good lunchtime deals in Edinburgh.

Michael Neave Kitchen & Whisky Bar Assured and polished dining, Micheal Neave's offers a great value weekday express lunch and – commendably – a bargain Saturday fixed price option.

The Rabbit Hole This neighbourhood bistro is building a loyal following, thanks in part to its keenly priced set lunch.

The Scran and Scallie Clever sourcing helps keep prices reasonable at Tom Kitchin's gastropub; their weekday set lunch is a steal for such high-quality cooking.

Timberyard A tightly focused set lunch showcases Timberyard's ultra-seasonal pared-back cooking.

The Walnut With two courses for around a tenner, this pint-sized Leith bistro is accessible to all.

Wedgwood the Restaurant Exceptional cooking using locally sourced, seasonal and foraged ingredients, Paul Wedgwood's lunch deal is phenomenal value.
