Eating & Drinking Guide

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

The team behind Tom Kitchin’s superior gastropub uses the best of natural Scottish materials for the décor – oak, sheepskin, tweed and wool in subtle blue and earthy brown tartans – and the prime of the country’s larder – Loch Fyne oysters, Orkney scallops, game from the Roxburghe estate – for the menu. The result is a cosy yet sophisticated place to enjoy great food. Comforting classics like steak pie and fish and chips are a cut above and in-season specials such as roe deer sausage and colcannon are equally satisfying. For a fancy occasion, take advantage of the pub’s partnership with Philipponnat champagne, or stick to a local ale from an independent brewer or a glass from the extensive wine list. None will disappoint. Last, but definitely not least, there’s a playroom, leaving you free to give the food (and your fellow diners) some much-deserved attention.

Blackfriars 57–61 Blackfriars Street, Old Town, 0131 558 8684, There’s more than a touch of art school hipness about this stripped-back bar and neighbouring restaurant where a former sous chef to Martin Wishart cooks robust…

There is a place for good food in a pub setting - just don't call it a gastropub

Tom Kitchin among those involved in new Edinburgh pub openings The Scran & Scallie and The Vintage

We all love a good pub. Not only are they familiar social spaces but in Scotland we venerate them as stimulating, democratic venues of inexpensive conviviality. When you eat in a pub you eat grub. It’s seen to be elitist – undemocratic, even – to wish…
