The Magnum Restaurant & Bar
Intimate New Town bar and bistro punching well above its weight, with separate bar and outdoor seating for comfy year-round drinking and dining.
Behind a bold green exterior on the one of the upmarket streets of the New Town, The Magnum is a relaxed and unpretentious, yet decidedly pretty, oasis for a drink or bite to eat. With generous space between the dark wooden tables, and plenty of inviting nooks and crannies, this is the kind of place where diners are equally comfortable to come for an intimate meal for two, a big celebration for a group, or a relaxed meal for one. For starters, the terrific plate of pickled, roasted and dehydrated beetroot with whipped goat’s cheese shows flair, as well as a chef with an eye for an attractive Insta-worthy plate. For mains the menu will keep the most diverse of groups happy, with options ranging from lightly battered haddock to venison tortellini with cauliflower purée. Some elements of the dishes aren’t quite on point, but with an ethos which sees them committed to keeping their suppliers local, and considerate touches like a dedicated gluten-free menu, the Magnum is a definite people-pleaser.
