It all started in December 2015 with an idea to create a diner with a difference! Myself, being from Canada, was desperately looking for something in the South Queensferry area that provided something totally different and satisfied my North American tastebuds! North American influenced food, with quality locally sourced ingredients.

These guys know how to get 'er done and do Canadian grub right! As a fellow Canadian living in Edinburgh, I often get the homesick poutinr blues. Everything about this place made me feel at home. Excellent food and drinks; you have a new customer for life! Only thing I would change is.... Where's the Canucks jersey pals?!?!

Couldn't recommend it more for breakfast and I'm really looking forward to the dinner I've booked for my partner's birthday! You could tell the haggis and black pudding were of higher quality, compared to other cafés and the portions were huge! Even the coffee was better than any other place. Absolute value for money, staff were most helpful and the place felt homely. Will be coming back again and again!

Down the Hatch Antigua street have been keeping us fed with burgers and wings for collection throughout this pandemic. We finally managed to get around to sitting in and having one of their fabled skillets.
My partner had the Down the Hatch breakfast (Scottish) and I had the Mexican version. Both were excellent and super tasty. I polished off mine in quick fashion but the Scottish breakfast was too much, so I finished it :-)

Two breakfast skillets, 2 x orange juices and a tea and coffee for £21!!
Due to pandemic interaction, the staff had to be distant but were super.

Will be going back.

Having been a fan of DTH at Port Edgar, I was excited to try their restaurant.
Good food, quick delivery, happy and helpful staff.
Really good to see them succeed during lockdown!

Massive sandwich (pulled chicken club), great flavours - the Korean BBQ wings were out of this world. Did a lot of DTH take away during lockdown, and I know I'll be coming back for regular dining in! Lovely place, delicious scran - can't go wrong with a bit of DTH love!

Amazing atmosphere, very nice vibe inside. I didn’t think you could get any better than take out but sitting in was phenomenal and the waiter ever organised a table outside for after our meal to enjoy a delicious cold pint!

This was absolutely tremendous. From being greeted with smiling faces and the service throughout was outstanding. We had numerous questions due to dietary requirements but it was never a hassle. The food is the best tasting food you can imagine. The Philly Cheesesteak was the beat PCS I’ve ever had and I’ve been to Philly! How is that possible? But they nail it! The Shakes are also phenomenal and worth it! On a scale out of 10, I’d give Down The Hatch a 12! There’s not more I can say about this place. It’s already my favourite place in Edinburgh! A must eat here for anyone who loves proper food!
