About Innis & Gunn Brewery Taproom Edinburgh
Would never have thought of going here but it was a last minute booking and we were stuck for options. We were very pleasantly surprised by the place, the atmosphere was quite understandably a bit noisy for a bit being the Saturday before Christmas but it never spoilt the experience. The friendly service was excellent and food was very tasty and hot. The prices for the set Christmas menu including a drink which was good value and we will definitely be returning. I would definitely recommend!
Good if you don't mind the noise!
Our waitress Stephanie was an absolute delight! She worked her socks off looking after us.
The food was good and reasonably priced.
However, the grumpy old woman in me did not appreciate the general noise and the crowded feeling, which for a popular place is quite normal at that time of day.
I had asked for a booth, but was told they were only for parties of four, so I was quite surprised to see some parties of two in occupance.
I would go back, but at a much quieter time.
Brew bar and kitchen in the city centre
One of several bars run by the same hip brewery family, Innis & Gunn Beer Kitchen on Lothian Road supplies fresh, flavoursome beer crafted with passion. The labels on offer at this contemporary bar are varied – from fresh Innis & Gunn creations direct from the brewery to craft offerings from Scotland and worldwide.
You can also try out a delicious range of ‘hoptails’, cocktails, wines and spirits to suit all pockets and palates. Regular events such as home brewing workshops, steak nights and beer sampling all keep things lively.
Contemporary bar and grill food
From brunch and lunch to bar bites and dinner, Innis & Gunn has beer-friendly options for all times of day. The team firmly believe that pairing great beer with food is a match made in heaven. For this reason, the menu makes various pairing suggestions, such as the Beer Kitchen Burger with Session IPA, the Scottish chicken supreme with Gunnpowder IPA and the flat iron steak with Blood Red Sky.
If you would prefer a lighter bite, you can tuck into the truffle parmesan fries, the free range chicken wings and the ‘KFC’ (Korean fried cauliflower).
