Low and slow is the order of the day at this Scottish barbecue restaurant. With counter service and a laid-back feel, it works well for an informal stop-off for individuals, couples and large groups. The quality of the meat is high and all sourced from local East Lothian farms. The meat tubs (which come accompanied by a tasty side such as barbecue baked beans and triple-cooked chips) are filled to the brim, with choices from smoked baby back pork ribs to pulled barbecue Scotch beef, which melts in the mouth. Splash on one of their homemade sauces such as Irn Bru BBQ or Buckie Broon to add a spicy – and Scottish – tang. Cakes are homemade too and well worth sampling – the brownies are brilliantly chocolatey and gooey. With everything from Scottish craft ales to PekoeTea to Cardross coffee on offer, all thirsts are well quenched and with recently extended opening hours, there's every reason to make Reekie's your new meaty go-to.

  • High point: The beautifully tender meat

Reekie's Smokehouse is a family-run, family-friendly restaurant serving up top quality BBQ with a Scottish influence. We've got two authentic, American-built BBQ smokers, our sauces are all made from scratch on-site, and our meat, bread and pretty much everything else is local, responsible and produced with passion. We serve a variety of homemade cakes, and fabulous teas and coffees have been blended and roasted just for us. Our kids corner with chalkboard, toys and colouring in should keep the little ones entertained and under eights eat for £1.50 (when purchased with a main order).
