    Great place for dinner

    We chose from the three course a la carte menu which also included an amuse bouche of butternut squash velouté. Food was superb with a lovely combination of flavours and waiting staff were attentive and helpful

    Fantastic Food and Service

    We were chilling out in New Town area and were on the lookout for somewhere nice to eat away from the chain restaraunts. Found Purslane on the internet and it was only a short walk from town to the trendy Stockbridge area so we decided to book table. Glad we did, the food was first class as was the service. It's a small restaraunt but the ambience is nice. You get what you pay for so it was slightly expensive but we'll worth it. Would not hesitate to go back again.

Locally sourced, seasonal ingredients drive the menus at Purslane. As well as the a la carte menu, there is a tasting menu which can be paired with matched wines for each course. Typical starters might be the pan-fried scallops with celeriac purée and samphire while a popular main course might be the roast rump of lamb with parmentier potatoes, a red wine jus and peas in a buttery stock. Desserts are a speciality at Purslane whether they be a relatively straightforward vanilla pannacotta with raspberry sorbet or a more complex white chocolate mousse with pineapple salsa and pineapple sorbet. The lunch menu is exceptionally good value.
