We love….Stockbridge’s new gastro pub
Stockbridge is one of Edinburgh’s best-loved suburbs with the leafy Water of Leith running through it, small, independent shops lining cobbled streets and a huge selection of cafes, bars and eateries. One of the latest additions is Michelin-starred Tom Kitchin’s gastro pub, The Scran & Scallie.
Having opened on Easter Sunday, The Scran & Scallie is the latest venture by Tom Kitchin and fellow chef Dominic Jack. The bar serves Scottish craft beers from local brewers such as Fyne Ales, Harviestoun Brewery and Isle of Skye Brewery and dishes have a similar theme.
Both chefs scoured the National Library of Scotland for traditional, classic Scottish recipes. Some of those can be found on the menu – with and without a twist. There are brave choices such as Sheep’s Heid Scotch Broth and Tripe & Ox Tongue alongside possibly more approachable dishes like a Scottish Wagyu beef burger, the Scran & Scallie fish pie and a Cauliflower Cheese. Bar ‘scran’ and delicious desserts complete the menu which certainly has us intrigued.
Whilst staying true to the team’s ‘From Nature to Plate’ motto, the gastro pub has a more relaxed feel to it, making it a great local, but also an excellent place for a relaxed meal on an Edinburgh break. The pub is open daily from 10am and will be serving brunch on weekends – let us know if you’d like to try it.
