Perfect pub dining from popular canalside inn.
If you take a wee stroll along the Union Canal from the Bridge Inn, you might get a glimpse of their own Saddleback pigs. They also have free-range hens for eggs, while gardener Charlie keeps the kitchen supplied with fruit and veg from the walled garden at Ratho Hall. With credentials like that, it’s no surprise that the menu is seriously appetising – pork with roast apple sauce; seared wood pigeon; smoked salmon with pea shoots, rocket and lemon; all-butter puff pastry pies – the list goes on. A roaring fire and comfy seating in winter, a beer garden for the summer plus a good selection of local ales and malts make for a pretty full house of boxes ticked for the perfect pub, with four bedrooms upstairs for those looking to make a night of it.
