Andrew Usher & Co. South Side, Edinburgh

British, Vegetarian/Vegan, Traditional, Gastro Pub

This Southside cellar bar was once part of the Usher brewing and distilling dynasty. That heritage lives on at Andrew Usher & Co, a bar that brews its own beer and blends its own whiskies. While craft beers are a focus here, the staff are equally as happy to whiz up a cocktail or recommend a bottle of wine to go with the bar food. Students, academic staff and audience members in for a bite before a show at the Festival Theatre can all be found here.

Shebeen Dalry Haymarket, Gorgie & Dalry, Edinburgh

African, Steaks & Grill

Shebeen is a traditionally styled South African restaurant on Dalry Road. Taking its name from township drinking dens, the dining room is fitted with chunky wooden furniture and decorated with African art and textiles. One corner is given over to portraits of happy Springboks captains. The wine list and selection of beers also reflect the restaurant's South African heritage. Such is the success of the Shebeen idea, the company has two other branches: one on Morrison Street and one in Dalkeith. This is a great venue for group dining as well as more intimate meals.

Seasons Vietnamese Leith, Edinburgh

Chinese, Far Eastern, Vegetarian/Vegan, Vietnamese

Not yet rated - be the first to review!

Edinburgh is well served for Thai restaurants but there is less opportunity to try dishes from its nearby neighbour. Seasons Vietnamese Restaurant on Newhaven Road is helping to change that. If you have ever wondered what people eat in Hanoi's Old Quarter, now is your chance to find out. As with many of the noodle shops of Vietnam's capital, the decor at Seasons Vietnamese Restaurant is functional rather than plush.

    Excellent service

    Table booked for 8.30. When we arrived there was only 2 other tables - waiters were excellent, water put on table then wine ,food deliver to table very quickly there was only 5 minutes between courses. I couldn't fault this restaurant or the deal. As I was only visiting Edinburgh, the chance of me getting back is slim but would recommend
