Eating & Drinking Guide

The 2017 edition of The List's Eating & Drinking Guide is out now – only £5.95 (+p&p).

This old-fashioned, wood-panelled basement bar on the boundary of the New Town and Stockbridge is unremarkable in many ways, but all the more charming for its sense of elegant unpretentiousness. In fact, it’s a classic local boozer squirrelled away in the heart of the city. There are three cask ales on tap and enough of a range of spirits to keep the regulars going, but what’s different about the St Vincent is its place as a partner in the Feed mini-chain. That means that while some of their attention is focused on their bustling city centre bar Nightcap, Feed’s full American-style menu of burgers (beef, halloumi or bean) and sides including chicken wings, blackened corn and chilli cheese fries is available here.
