Eating & Drinking Guide

The 2018/19 edition of The List's Eating & Drinking Guide is out now – only £7.95 (+p&p).

A mouse in the larder is not usually a good thing; however Carington Mouse's Larder is an entirely different story. On a busy Newington street, this cosy deli/sandwich shop serves a hearty bowl of Union of Genius soup, rolls, sandwiches, and toasties to eat in or take away, using mainly Scottish (and where possible, locally sourced) ingredients. Manna House Bakery supplies their bread and rolls, resulting in a near-perfect smoked ham and mature cheddar toastie. Sit and enjoy a dense squidgy chocolate and walnut brownie (made in Leith) with a coffee (supplied by Clever Goat) or an Eteaket tea. The deli sells a range of ingredients; pasta, deli meats, oils, vinegars, preserves, biscuits and cheeses and, for that last-minute dinner party, pick up a bottle from their selection of organic and sustainably harvested wines, or even a packet of gin and tonic popcorn.

The Larder

Included in our Larder listings – order print copies of our national (pub. 2010) and regional guides.

Carington Mouse is a lovable mouse that lives in our house and steals all the cheese. We are Daryll and Carey and we run Carington Mouse’s Larder for her.

We have a range of Scottish meats; including haggis, Stornoway black pudding, and venison charcuterie. Scottish cheeses and delicious accompaniments, such as oatcakes, chutney and preserves.

Try our unusual range of bread, baked fresh every morning in Edinburgh – the charcoal loaf is our favourite.

A full range of fine wines, from around the world, that are all sustainably grown and a range of wonderful beers and ales from local Scottish breweries.

We are passionate about local produce and we try to keep things as Scottish as possible and for things that Scotland can’t offer we buy from local, responsible suppliers.

We also offer a range of gourmet rolls, locally baked scones, and Scottish Cheese boards

Please pop in for a look around or sit in for a delicious tea or artisan roast coffee all made with organic Scottish milk of course.
