Good wines, good food and a good place to discover something new.

Eating & Drinking Guide

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

Hidden on a side street in Stockbridge, the unassuming frontage of Good Brothers Wine Bar belies the adventures found within. A clean minimalist interior echoes the stripped-back, ever-evolving wine list, with an intimate and somewhat grown-up atmosphere hinting at how seriously proprietors Rory and Graeme Sutherland take their wine. With attentive and knowledgeable staff on hand to guide your journey, their list features natural wine producers, such as tullum biologico from small vineyard Feudo Antico – it’s clear that Good Brothers is the place to try something a little different. Simple bar bites are always available, but now the brothers are planning a series of pop-up chef residencies after the success of Lloyd Morse’s stint at the beginning of the year, which seems to fit perfectly with their ‘never boring’ philosophy – check their website to see if someone’s cooking, or plan your evening around pre or post-food wine.

  • High point: A carefully curated wine list unlike any in Edinburgh
  • Low point: Not for those after an unassuming bottle of house wine
  • Notable dish: Potato pancake, mackerel & crème fraîche
  • Average price: £24 (dinner)

We are two brothers, brought up locally, with over 20 years of passion and experience in the hospitality and wine industry. We love great food and interesting wines and staunchly believe in sourcing as much as we can locally. With wine, we have a passion for minimal intervention and sustainable practices with around half our list being classified as either Organic, Biodynamic or Natural.

What are these voodoo wines I hear you cry! They are wines that are crafted without additives, without the use of pesticides or man-made fertilizers or without the addition of stabilising agents. In short: wine as nature intended.

We have taken over a much-loved venue on the corner of Dean Street and Raeburn Place in Stockbridge and aim to create Edinburgh’s finest wine bar with food. A relaxed, comfortable venue that makes you want to come back every day. Just think Cheers with us instead of Ted Danson.
