Eating & Drinking Guide

The 2019/20 edition of The List's Eating & Drinking Guide is out now – only £5.95 (+p&p).

Set back from the main road heading out towards the city bypass, Charwood is hard to miss with its black sign and tiled, pyramid roof. You can eat in the lounge bar with sport on TV, or in the restaurant where natural light floods in through big windows that look south to the Pentlands. Proud of his Josper grill, the chef majors on barbecued beef, from the Charwood burger – juicy and suitably charred – to a variety of well-hung steaks. A creamy smoked haddock chowder with leeks makes a fine starter, while for mains, lamb’s liver and shallots is tasty and succulent. There’s also a range of wood-fired pizzas, from a simple margherita to the Hot Scot, topped with haggis, jalapeno pepper and mozzarella. If you still have room, there are some very creamy sundaes to finish you off.

  • High point: The chargrilled meat
  • Low point: The potato-packed fishcake
  • Notable dish: Charwood burger
  • Average price: £18 (lunch); £20 (dinner)

Here at Charwood we are dedicated to making our new restaurant as family friendly as possible. With a big onsite car park you can bring the whole family along without worrying about parking! We have a great outdoor seating area away from the main road and a tiny (and safe) little water feature the kids can throw pennies into. Our delicious Kids menu is all made fresh onsite and we can cater for any allergy requirements your little ones might have (or yourselves for that matter). We have a fun kids menu's full of puzzles and coloring competitions where you can win a £20 voucher every month. Our fresh and exciting menu has everything you could hope for coming into those lovely summer evenings with an on site Josper Grill for our delicious steaks and a wood burning Pizza oven. We even do a delicious Roast on a Sunday! With stunning views over the Pentland Hills from our floor to ceiling windows or our beer garden it's the perfect way to spend a family evening.

We also have 2 function suites, one that can hold up to 120 people for drinks (90 for a sit down meal) and one that holds up to 25/30 people. These would be perfect for intimate family celebrations such as birthdays, christenings and wedding anniversaries as well as kids parties and even meetings for your work. We even have our own wedding licence so not only can you have your reception here you can have your whole special day here. Our experienced events team could make any occasion extra special for you.

If you want to leave the kids at home we have a whole other newly refurbished bar on site, perfect for those romantic nights alone with a bottle or 2 of wine or if it's a bit more fun you're after we also have a pub quiz in the bar every Thursday from 8pm.
