Froth & Flame
Wood-fired pizza, rotating Scottish beers, cocktail deals and a warm welcome, all within easy reach of Haymarket station.
The pizza-pub is a strong concept and Froth and Flame’s owners (Spey Valley, Keith and Alechemy breweries) have big plans for the brand, which naturally showcases their own beers. Their first bar takes full advantage of the myriad of holiday accommodation around Haymarket with beer and pizza both available for takeaway. Those sitting-in will find a decent attempt at cosying up a cavernous space – tartan-lined booths, a mezzanine balcony and plenty of outdoor seating. The short but sweet range of wood-fired pizzas wisely keep the toppings simple. Expect classic combos like the Napoli – nduja, friarielli and mozzarella – or a simple margherita with a flavoursome tomato sauce on a nicely charred base. The rest of the menu is equally pared-back, with a couple of pastas, salads and generous sharing platters, perfect if you just want a nibble alongside your beer – eight rotating taps keep things interesting. Friendly staff work hard to create atmosphere, but it’s hard to escape the feeling that this place would do better in a more residential part of town. That said, the genius scheduling of the Sunday quiz (afternoons!) should go someway toward building a sense of community.
The first establishment under the Froth & Flame concept serves a mixture of craft and International beers complimented by authentic pizza and other Italian culinary delights hand made in a genuine Italian wood fired pizza oven.
