Welcome to Inchcolm Inn.

The Inchcolm Inn, Pub & dining room is located on the west side of the historic town of South Queensferry, between the road and rail bridges. Warm, cosy and welcoming, we serve up a menu of hearty Scottish fayre alongside cold beers, wines and a cracking wee cocktail list. The perfect spot for you, your friends and family to rest your weary feet, quell your hunger and slake your thirst.

Plus we have a cracking beer garden to soak up the sun and welcome our four legged fury friends. They even have their own menu specially created by Pets 'n Vets.

Service was good however the macaroni was thick and craggy in a small dish! It was freezing as the door was kept open. To top it all a screaming child! Not the best experience.

Lovely little outdoor area but quite chilly despite the weather being good. Food was great and staff were welcoming and friendly. Only issue we had was being handed a dirty cutlery tin that looked as though it had been used on another table as some cutlery was missing. Issue was quickly resolved by staff.

We had a fab visit to the Inchcolm. The food was great, and the outside seating area is spacious, clean and enjoyable.
We got starters of mussels and mac’n’cheese and the portions were very generous.
Wine was good too, and the two waiters serving were lovely even though they were clearly rushed off their feet!

The food was fine as was the service. As I paid by contactless payment, it was only when checking my bill at home that I realized I had been overcharged. My visit was early afternoon on a weekday and I was charged evening menu prices.

As advertised we went here for Sunday Roast Dinner only to find that they had none. Totally disappointed. Went for other available options, it was OK especially the fresh battered haddock.
It would be advisable to tell customers what not on menu.

Service was good, bit slow considering how quiet it was. Food was abysmal, mash was not creamy at all. Partner says it tasted like microwaved meal. My Mac & cheese was dry as anything. Onion rings came out 10/15 mins after our mains did - were overcooked & no taste. Will be back but only for drinks. Won’t be eating here again

The starter was nice but our mains were awful. Muscles were undercooked, mac n cheese was so so dry and no visible sauce whatsoever! Mentioned to the waitress and she said she would let the chef know, that was it no discount, nothing. Considering the place was extremely quiet the service was very slow. I won't be back.

Lovely staff, really friendly. Food was served quickly and was a mixed bag.
Crab cake was lovely but couldn’t make it work with the katsu curry sauce. Chips were amazing, but the steak in the pie was a little tough. The side salad was a full salad, really nice.
All in all a good meal but not great.

The food was excellent, we only had main courses (Sunday Roast, Fish and Chips, and a Chicken Avocado Bacon Salad) but everybody cleared their plates.
The staff were friendly, helpful, and very professional.
The wait from ordering wasn't too long, about 30-40 minutes, but the ambience was nice so we didn't mind waiting.
Price-wise, it was great value for the quality of food. I would definitely go again, and definitely recommend it to anyone who needed a place to go for a meal.

Booked in for the football…given a table where view of TV was obscured by a pole. Asked to be moved told no but 5 mins later found us a better table. Well done to the staff.

Stella and bierra Moretti taps were off. Had to drink Guinness but then that ran out.

Only alternatives John Smiths or Tennants. Get the John Smiths in the bin and replace with Belhaven Best.

Need to sort that out. Otherwise good visit.,

Food was good with good size portions.
Had booked an indoor table, on arrival was told no indoor tables available. Sat outside freezing. On request they moved us inside for main course.
Seems like just trying to get back on there feet following change of guidelines and a little staff training are all that's needed.
