About The Inchcolm Inn

Traditional Scottish dining in South Queensferry

The Inchcolm Inn is a warm, cosy and welcoming eating spot close to South Queensferry Harbour. The menu offers a range of locally focused Scottish cuisine with a cheffy flourish. All dishes can be washed down with a specially selected cold beer, wine or cracking wee cocktail.

The inn is around around a 45-minute drive from both Glasgow and Edinburgh.

Hearty and homely fare

All dishes at The Inchcolm Inn are inspired by Scotland’s rich and abundant larder. As well as lunch and evening menus, you can also tuck into a traditional roast on Sundays.

Sample starters include Shetland Island mussels served with a rich garlic, cream & wine sauce; Stornaway Black Pudding fritters with fried sourdough and a poached egg, and Orkney crab cake with katsu curry and spring onion. Mains include the Inchcolm Fish Pie with buttery mash; classic chicken Balmoral with whisky sauce, and haggis, neeps & tatties (with a veggie version available).

If you’ve got room for more, then you can satisfy your sweet tooth with a sticky toffee pudding, cranachan, chocolate whisky brownie and much more.

There is also a children’s menu serving timeless classics that little ones will love, including mac & cheese, goujons, burgers and ice cream desserts.

What’s more, the team at the inn have happily sampled ciders, wine, whisky, gins and cocktails from the Burghs to the Borders, creating a drinks list that they take real pride in. A signature special is the Inchcolm Cooler cocktail, a heady concoction of Midori, Malibu, Bacardi, orange and cranberry juice. There is also a tempting range of dessert cocktails.
