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

Eating & Drinking Guide

The 2017/18 edition of The List's Eating & Drinking Guide is out now – only £5.95 (+p&p).

Rory and Graeme Sutherland really love their wines, particularly those with something new to offer. Orange wine may not be for everyone, but it’s an interesting alternative to explore, and there are plenty of other tipples on the 120-strong wine list here. Some of the price tags tip over the £100 mark, but there’s plenty of less costly drops to choose from, with by the glass options from just £4. The good brothers seek out a personal connection to their vintners and this convivial attitude is also reflected in the warm atmosphere of the bar and the sharing plates on the menu. Dishes range from simple but carefully sourced olives, cheeses and bread to more substantial prospects, with options like triple egg tagliatelle or buttermilk fried chicken with sprout slaw proving appetising and satisfying. All this combines to create a lovely addition to the Stockbridge scene.

  • High point: Wines with a difference
  • Low point: Smaller tables struggle to accommodate sharing plates
  • Notable dish: Calamari, kale, almond & soy salad
  • Average price: £15 (lunch); £15 (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.
