About Indigo Yard
A comfortable place
Indigo Yard has a fine ambience. The food and service are both very good.
Indigo Yard delivered a very good meal a wee bit slowly
I met my old friends for lunch in Indigo Yard and we enjoyed a great chat and good food.
Only issue was the main course arriving 90mins after we were seated, however that gave us more time to talk.
Will happily return and recommend.
Stylishly casual bar and restaurant in West End
Part of the award-winning Montpeliers group, Indigo Yard is a welcoming bar and restaurant on Charlotte Lane, just off Queensferry Road in Edinburgh’s West End. As well as a covered outside terrace, it has a light and airy bar, cosy mezzanine and a dining area with comfortable booth seating. Up-cycled and reclaimed materials give it all an enjoyably rustic edge but, underneath the stripped walls and wooden boards, this is a sleek, professional operation.
Modern gastropub menus
Free range chicken, marinated overnight and then spit-roasted until crispy skinned, crops up as different portion sizes and in dishes like the house soup, a Caesar salad and the Moroccan cous cous. There is an innovative list of wraps, sandwiches and salads plus fish options such as the roast salmon with asparagus risotto or the crayfish fettuccine.
Indigo Yard flies the flag for Scottish produce in dishes like the Orkney beef burger or the macaroni made with Scottish crab and crayfish. Sunday roasts, boozy brunches and a range of porchetta pig choices complete an appetising menu. Craft beer, tank beer, cocktails and interesting wines are all a focus.
